Album Notes
An inimitable stalwart of the Toronto music scene, Nick Zubeck is a versatile and accomplished guitarist, producer, and multi-intrumentalist whose talents have led him to play with Great Lake Swimmers (briefly, on bass), The Lavender Gloom (now defunct), Polmo Polpo (guitar and lap steel), and Barzin (currently). As a songwriter, he has released two albums under his own name (2002's "A Meek Spectacle" and 2003's "Hiding Out and Laying Low"), both of which were marked by his unequalled use of lush delicately-layered textures and unconventional song structures. His clever, skillful lyrics explored subject matter ranging from the dark and introspective to the quirky and playful, and the discs were received by reviewers as "... (a) beautifully dreamy....blend of folksy and experimental beats," and a "mellifluous acoustic album... a sunshiny wholesome listen." Nick's other current projects include The Book of Gnomes ( and Saul Karol (

Tracker, Zubeck's greatly anticipated third full-length disc, builds on the melodic and thematic elements of his previous two albums, while underscoring the decidedly more confident, single-minded, and mature musician that he has become in the past five years. Engineer Jeremy Darby (Lou Reed, David Bowie, Johnny Cash) recorded the bed tracks for the album over two days in June 2007 at Canterbury Sound. The core band features Nick on guitars and vocals, Darren Wall (Harry Pickens, Wynton Marsalis) on bass, Marshall Bureau (Northern Chorus, Erika Werry) on drums, Robbie Grunwald (Everything All The Time, Spooky Ruben, Jill Barber) on various keyboards, and Justin Haynes (Barnyard Drama, Kim Barlow) on electric guitar, plus an array of special guests. Mixed and co-produced by Sandro Perri (Polmo Polpo, Glissandro 70), and mastered by Harris Newman (Constellation Records), the music is colourful and varied, completely void of stylistic pandering.
