I first got to know Jory Nash over 20 years ago. His albums, songs, and shows, have always been impressive. He’s toured extensively throughout North America, being featured at festivals and concert halls all over Canada and the U.S. In 2009, his album New Blue Day topped the prestigious Penguin Eggs Magazine poll of music critics, artists, and presenters.

He was also the co-founder and for nearly 20 years, the director of a multi-artist tribute to Gordon Lightfoot, called The Way We Feel, which was not only approved by Lightfoot himself, but featured regular appearances by him as well over the years.

With acclaimed albums, regular touring, truly engaging and entertaining shows, and a high-profile tribute show with his name attached to it, somehow, still, Jory was unable to make a living doing what he does best, so a few years ago, he decided to step off the stage and put his music career in the past.

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to visit Toronto, where I saw a show called Homeward Bound, an Intimate Evening of Simon & Garfukel’s Greatest Hits, and it featured none other than Jory Nash. I knew that Jory was a big fan of Paul Simon, one of his most obvious influences, so it didn’t surprise me to see him on the bill, and it was very obvious that he was back where he belonged, on stage, singing songs and telling stories, even if they weren’t his own. Shortly after, Jory announced that he was planning on giving music another shot by recording a new album and booking some shows again.

I couldn’t wait to catch up with Jory and find out all about his return to music and find out more about the factors that led to him stepping away in the first place.
