Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Here's To Being Here captures the essence of Jason's live performances and features the energy and musicianship of his touring band, Paso Mino. "This is very much an old school guitar record, in the sense of it being very tasteful...that's one of the greater accomplishments of this record" says Collett, "recording in bigger spaces and live off the floor allowed us to capture some of the band energy. This allowed for spontaneous creations, which led to many wonderful little accidents."

Here's To Being Here was recorded and produced in Collett's hometown of Toronto, Ontario, by musician/producer Howie Beck. The album also features guest performances by fellow Broken Social Scene member and Apostle of Hustle front man Andrew Whiteman, as well as long time friend Tony Scherr (Norah Jones, John Scofield, Bill Frissell) and Liam O'Neil (The Stills) to name a few.

Review

The Torontonian's referred to the collection as his "guitar record,"...Judging from the first two tracks we've heard, dude's not bluffing. --Stereogum.com

Continuing forward as not just a member of the Broken Social Scene crew, but also as a prolific solo act. --SPIN.com

Format: Audio CD
Not believing there's been any good music in the last many years, I've missed out on so much good music for sure. This I'm very glad I caught. I'd say it's the best album I've heard this year!

Some songs that stick out:

1. Roll on Oblivion, the first song, sets out the very pleasing tone of the album. Very simple but very good!
2. Sorry Lori, the song after, reminds me a lot of the very very early Wings, when it was basically McCartney and his wife. Considering I think a lot of their music was very underrated, this is high praise! Again, a very pleasant song with a lovely simple melody.
3. Out of Time, similarly wonderful! I dare you to not not sing along to the chorus! It's impossible!
4. Papercut hearts, this song I think comes daringly close of a Tom Petty style, except I think it's nicer than practically all of Petty's songs.

The album's gems in my opinion are heavily front loaded but there isn't a dud on the album in my opinion. Have your pick of good or exceedingly good songs here!

catchy too. the guitar work is welcoming, intricate but not in your face so as to show off. Jason's performance is good as always. this is perfect Saturday music.
