Single release: ‘Wherever Love Takes Us’ by Drake Jensen

Posted by

Many moons ago I spent a year living in Vancouver, BC and I was involved with Canadian music. I was so impressed by the sophistication of Canadian musicians, their awareness of their lineage and their sense of responsibility to contribute to the national culture. There were certain places that had stronger musical cultures than others, and Cape Breton in Nova Scotia was one of them, with a Celtic culture and lots of accomplished musicians.

Singer-songwriter Drake Jensen hails from Cape Breton and he’s just released a single, ‘Wherever Love Takes Us’, ahead of an Australian tour in early 2017 (dates to be announced).

‘Wherever Love Takes Us’ may have a title that sounds like a typical love song, whatever that means, but it’s not that: Jensen is an activist for LGBTQI rights in Canada, and he’s keeping a close eye on the marriage equality debate happening in Australia.

The video for ‘Wherever Love Takes Us’ is below, with such an endearing opening. Enjoy the song, and watch out for Jensen’s tour.
