Abandoned Companions Review
Connect with Dave McEathron : Facebook
Dave McEathron is a Toronto-Hamilton based multi-instrumentalist that is re-emerging into the music world after taking several years away. McEathron was the principal songwriter and front man of the former roots rock band The Warped 45s. When the disbanding of The Warped 45s occurred, McEathron lost his joy for a lot of things, but from those ashes came a thought and that thought grew into an idea and then an identity and later a project. McEathron realized he was the original ‘Abandoned Companion,’ his life had been turned upside down, the career he spent his whole life working for was suddenly over, relationships fell apart and his mental health was compromised. To rediscover his true love and passion, music, he had to reinvent himself. Over the years that reinvention included: learning new skills in restoring an old house, making custom belt buckles, even picking up a new instrument – the banjo. In the middle of building indoor barn doors out of reclaimed wood, McEathron noticed the knot in the wood looked like a belt buckle and that lead to making custom belt buckles and experimenting with wood knots, metal, old board games and even dinky cars. This is what lead McEathron to establishing his skills in leather work, which is a big part of his new album’s packaging. Speaking of new albums, McEathron is releasing a full-length album that marks his return to music titled, Abandoned Companions. The album is eleven songs of true heart felt music from a man that lived every moment the lyrics describe. That’s the short of it!
