"Preacher Man" is the first new release from Saskatoon songwriter Christopher James Vasseur since the July debut of his EP Love & Divorce. The new single, out today, is a heartfelt celebration of one of Vasseur's close friends and songwriting inspirations.
"The idea for the song came from a friend of mine" Vasseur told NSMZ. "He’s one of the first genuine people I met when I moved to Saskatoon in 2018. He does so much for his community and the people around him, I thought he deserved a song!"
"Preacher Man" is available on all streaming services, but is also debuting on YouTube today with an animated video made by the multi-talented Vasseur. "The video came about when I made a small storyboard video to convey my idea to the band" he shared. "They laughed hard at my bush-league attempt and suggested that should be the video! So I cleaned up the drawings a bit and made a slightly better version."
The "Preacher Man" single & video release party is tonight, with performances from Vasseur as well as special guest Out of Frequency (Fabian Villeneuve). More information on tonight's event is available at https://thathouseonh.square.site
