After years of touring, living out of suitcases and calling a couple of places in two provinces home, Lori Reid has decided, like Dorothy, that there’s no place like home.
Reid, possibly best known for her time with the band The Fates, has settled once again in Canmore, is concentrating on her songwriting and performing, operates a dayhome for youngsters and in October released a new solo project – Temperance Hotel – which was recorded at the Canmore Hotel.
“The Fates haven’t broken up or anything and none of us know what the future holds,” she said. “I just wanted to get off the road and Lin (Elder) did too. Jenny (Allen) is still on the road, but I needed to take a break.
“I had a room in two different provinces, but no actual home and I didn’t have much cash. I was touring so much I didn’t have much of a day job, just serving or grocery store jobs, entry level stuff.
“I was touring with The Fates for the better part of eight years, full-time. We’d tour for three weeks, then take four days off, then tour for a few more weeks, then take a few days off.
“It was hard to have any consistency in our lives. We did OK, considering, but it was quite a balancing act.”
Reid had recorded a solo album of her own, Radio, and three with The Fates – ‘til we have faces, slam! and therapy, before Temperance Hotel. Reid’s run with The Fates was from 2002 to 2010, when they performed their last show together. read more...
