One Planet One Love


Brian Morton from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

I am a 37 year old singer/songwriter who lives in Hamilton, Ontario. I've had a 24 year long relationship with Chris De Burgh's music ever since discovering the "Spanish Train" LP at my Aunt's place. In the early 1980's I managed to get my hands on a Rickenbacker 12 String electric guitar, that at one time belonged to Chris De Burgh himself! Tragically, this priceless instrument was lost in a fire in 1991. The high point of my singing career so far was the opportunity to sing with Chris in September 1996 in Toronto and in London, Ontario in April 2000. I am keen to try another song, but am hoping to be invited next time! Brian was the chair of the CDEB Tribute CD commitee two years ago, and has enjoyed immensely being a part of the team for this year's edition.

This recording of DISCOVERY is an old one, dating back to 1995, the very same sessions which produced SAILOR from the volume one of the tribute CD... I debated doing some overdubs, but felt that the track had a simplicity and charm all its own, just as it is... Old Folkies of the world unite!
