There wasn't a moment to waste with David Morin when he came to town. We were moving around Calgary from show to interview to other engagements for most of the weekend.
It was great to get this opportunity to settle down and get to know him deeper as a person and artist in the studio. This Fireside Session feature's his new song "Your Love." Watch for it on his upcoming album.
Fireside exists to tell the story of our music community in Calgary. When an artist comes through to play a show, we want to get to know them as much as possible. One of the ways to do that is to focus in on their story through one of their songs in our studio.
Kyng intersected our story when founder, Jared Clark, discovered him at an open mic in Toronto. Before that, Kyng had already been on an adventure of his own, rising to the top of the American Idol competition but choosing to journey from there to dig into his sound in a real way, and find where he could settle in artistically.
We were honoured to have him experience some of that belonging with us in Calgary. This video gives you a glimpse of the light and joy Kyng shared with us all weekend.

106 years of history packed in to the walls of an Inglewood staple: The Lantern Church. The
second you walk into the venue you feel a slight shiver at the nostalgia that pierces those walls.
Just minutes away, we would be blown away by the soulful musical force that is David Morin.
This was the first Fireside event in the sanctuary. To say that it added to the intensity of the
music being played would be an immense understatement. No one more suitable to establish the musical pedigree we at Fireside are looking to showcase than Morin.
