Eyes On Fire: Debut Album By Class Of 91

It’s alive!

My band, Class of 91, began as a monthly meet up to make some noise. It was cover songs to start, it’s all original music now.

Two years on, we’ve performed several pre-COVID live shows in Ottawa and now have available our debut album, Eyes on Fire.

The album was started before COVID hit the world like a freight train, it was finished during the pandemic. We can’t properly promote the album with the second wave now upon us. However, we’re doing what we can to share our creation.

One of our songs, This is Magic, was featured this past week on Indie City Madness on CKCU 93.1 . You can find a downloadable version of our album on our Bandcamp site. It is also available through all streaming services.

We’re a four-piece band comprised of drums, bass, and both electric and acoustic guitars. We have some interesting video and recordings in the works right now to help support this album release. You’ll want to follow us for these announcements. We’d appreciate if you give it a listen and help spread the word.

Taking The Risk

Life is an incredible gift. It’s made even more incredible by the little surprises along the the journey. In no version of my retirement planning, or post-military life did I think I’d be part of a band. Especially one that would be releasing an album.

It is amazing the opportunities that present themselves when you just show up and remain open to any of the new paths that might emerge before you. Keep life interesting. Engage in novel activities and don’t be afraid to follow your passions. Life doesn’t have to be linear, you don’t have to follow conventional notions of success, achievement, or stability. So get involved and take a chance. Life is too short to not take the risk.

Enjoy the album and remember that all the bold, blue and underlined bits of this post are links I encourage you to explore.
