For his first album as Grey Lands, Wayne Petti returned to the musical country he came from. Songs By Other People is a solo album that isn't solo - Cuff the Duke's frontman reimagining the songs of others, with the help of others, everyone gathered in a warm, electric sound.
"I wanted to acknowledge where I had been, musically," Petti says. So there are songs by Bob Dylan and Buffy Ste-Marie, by Sloan and M Ward, all filtered through Petti's prism. The music is burred and confident, far noisier than Petti's previous work. And his choice of pals gives the material a scrappy quality: Blue Rodeo's Greg Keelor, shouting beside Petti on Dylan's "My Back Pages"; Sarah Harmer, coyly duetting on Lee Hazlewood's "Sand". All of these guests, from Keelor and Harmer to Joel Plaskett, Hayden and Randy Bachman, are musicians Petti has supped with or toured with or meandered alongside, over kind grey lands.
