What began as a fun conversation about how to write a song and get it recorded, turned into a major fundraising initiative for the Unison Fund, Canada’s music industry charity.
Troy Kokol and Joni Delaurier of Scarlett Butler wrote “Looking for a Lockdown with you” with some friends (G. Schmidt, T. Schmidt, S. Stevens), and before they knew it, Canadian Country Music Association Hall of Fame inductee Michelle Wright, CCMA Award winners Aaron Goodvin and Duane Steele, and Amber Marshall of CBC’s Heartland went into the recording studio to cut it. The result is a tongue-in-cheek pandemic love song that takes a lighter look at dating in the age of COVID-19.
All of the artists donated their talent and time in addition to Reluctant Cowboy Records who produced the track free of charge. By joining together to support Canada’s music community, the star-studded collaborators hope to raise funds and build awareness while also creating some levity for country music listeners and fans during these challenging times. Beginning TODAY, fans can visit Bandcamp to download the song for $5.00.
100% of the net proceeds from sales will go to the Unison Fund, Canada’s music industry charity, which provides counselling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community in times of hardship or difficulties.
With every individual download purchased, you are entered to win a personalized video message from Heartland's Amber Marshall along with a digital code to experience a private Zoom concert featuring; the hot new duo Scarlett Butler, Duane Steele, Aaron Goodvin, and CCMA Hall of Fame member Michelle Wright!
The more downloads you buy, the more chances you have to win! The private Zoom concert will take place at a mutually agreed-upon time. The contest will close at 12 am MST on Monday, March 19, 2021, after which time the lucky winner will be contacted.
