Luke Doucet at the WECC Winnipeg


"I think musicians tend to be a self-indulgent, navel-gazing lot," Doucet says. "Their biggest concern is that they won’t get the credit for creating all of the genius on the record. But I think your personality will always shine though. Your name — and face, probably — is on the album. You’re credited with being the principal songwriter and probably with playing one of the major instruments. You’re the one who tours it. Some singer/songwriters feel like they lose credibility if they’re not doing everything on a record. I think it’s good to let the people do the things I’m not good at, which is why I was so happy to have people like Andrew and David contribute."

I can't wait to see this guy tomorrow. I like my whisky straight up too.
Hope to see you all there.
