NEW SINGLE "SUMMER" OUT NOW
BUY on Bandcamp https://chrisbottomleymusic.bandcamp.com/track/summer-single
Sometime last year, during the pandemic, my friend Derek Christie asked me if I wanted to play bass on a song he was recording called "Long Way To Go", a tribute to my brother, fellow songwriter John Bottomley. John originally recorded and released "Long Way To Go" on "Blackberry", one of his most successful albums. I had a lot of fun grooving to Derek's version of it, and after we had finished the song, the discussion turned to making a video for it.
The song, being released on September 17th to mark what would have been John's 62nd birthday, is not only a memorial tribute to John, but also a way to raise awareness of and funds for CASP (Canadian Association For Suicide Prevention).
On May 8, 2019, a unanimous vote in Parliament passed Member Motion M-174 sponsored by NDP MP for Timmins-James Bay, Charlie Angus, which called for a National Suicide Prevention Action Plan.
