Fred Squire is best known as a former member of the legendary band Shotgun and Jaybird, and for his frequent Julie Doiron collaborations. These days he’s living in Sudbury, Ontario with his songstress wife Kate Maki. He released his latest solo album Spooky Action at a Distance a little over two months ago, but I just found out about it recently.
Spooky Action… is easily my favourite of Squire’s three proper solo albums. It’s a beautiful collection of mature, homespun songs played through a good tube amp, reflective of Squire’s current life as a husband and father living in a small city in relatively Northern Ontario. If you read this, Fred, please send me a zip, because I’ve maxed out my free streaming privileges on bandcamp 🙂
