"It's Time" is a 6 song album that has Jarrid walking a fine line between modern country and something new that can only be described as new Indigenous Country Music. 3 single tracks that have up beat two stepping on one hand and a deep grassroots connection to Jarrid's Iyiniw upbringing on the other hand. Here is a brief description of the album.
Song 1. Let’s Get Gone (Single) - features world renowned fiddle player and award winning multi instrumentalist Jake Clayton from Nashville Tennessee sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in Country Music Jake elevates this song to new heights. Let's Get gone can be found on CBC Country channel 171 on Sirius XM and has also reached the Indigenous Music Countdown peaking at #8 and the Canadian Indie Country Countdown at #12.
Song 2. Good Man Down - I wrote this song after too many people telling me how to live my life... and yes with those all time favorite words (you should.) It seems that the older I get the more I get to decide what it is that I want to do with my life and there comes a time when you just have to say you can't keep a good man down and move forward.
Song 3. It’s Time- This song is the feature track off the whole album and was written 2 years ago with the sole intent of sharing what negative ripple effects are still present in today's society. It's time was written for Sept 30th's orange shirt day which is now known as Canada's Day for Truth & Reconciliation. Song is a unique blend of traditional hand drumming that represents the heartbeat we all hear from birth and features Indigenous Singer Marcus Longjohn.
Song 4. The Addict- This song was written last year for National Addictions Awareness Week and it touches on a lot of issues that people face today and there is hope for everyone all it takes is a helping hand and the will to change.
Song 5. All night (Single) A top 40 country song that tells the story of a boy meets girl, they fall in love have a family and grandkids. Their lives would all be changed forever and it started with just one kiss that took the boy all night. Based on a true story my good friend lost her husband to cancer and with her permission this is their song. All Night will be released in November with proceeds going towards men's cancer awareness.
Song 6. My best friend featuring "Chief & Council" no not that C&C but Jarrid's band of brothers that have been backing up Jarrid for the past few years is a song that tells the story of losing two very important people in Jarrid's life. Catch award winning Indigenous talent on this track with a nice touch of the northern sound we all grew up on.
