Newfoundland's own Tony O'leary is excited about the release of his latest album, The Mysteries Of Life. The well-known local accordion player recruited a who's who of musicians to help him out on his latest project, including Brian Way, Mark Peddle, Glen Hollett, and a host of others. All of the 14 songs were written or arranged by O'leary, who's also well known as a defender of natural habitat in the province. In fact, the CD is dedicated to "all the folks in the 21st century who respect and revere nature. For without them future generations wouldn't have any wilderness left."
The follow up to his previous records, Pumps the Box and Rocks the Rock, the new album features a variety of musical styles including ballads, to Blues to traditional accordion and much more.
A STRONG PASSION
The Long Range Mountains Beckon Me, What Are You Doing To Me Bog Boys, and This Old Town focus on O'leary's strong passion for nature and preserving it. However, O'leary also doesn't mind a laugh with such songs as What Do Ya Do With A Hairy Arsed Bayman? O'leary says the new record has universal themes include stories of love, nature and humour throughout the CD. The new album is now available at Music Plus, Fred's Records, HMV, Hallmark Cards, O'Brien's Music Store, Downhome, Itunes, CD Baby and at tonyolearymusic.ca.
