“When I wrote ‘Waiting On The Rain’, I never expected it to be released as a single; it’s incredibly personal,” says Shiplett of the lead single. “But in a world where we’re constantly bombarded with the polished social media version of life, I felt like it was a good time for me to be honest about who I am and who I’m working on becoming. It’s a song that comes straight from my heart, and I’m hopeful it can find its way to someone else’s.”
With the rare ability to connect from the opening note, Shiplett first made his mark on the national music scene with his 2017 CCMA Award-nominated debut album Something To Believe In, for which he was also crowned “Male Artist of the Year” in addition to wins for “Roots/Folk Recording of the Year”, “Single of the Year” and “Country Recording of the Year” at the 2017 YYC Music Awards. With Fingers Crossed, Shiplett has consciously and passionately forged his own path, spending a year pouring over every detail of recording, writing and arranging, playing many of the instruments and cutting his teeth on both engineering and producing, resulting in an album that is both quintessentially him and sonically diverse.
“Fingers Crossed is a collection of music that comes from deep within,” says Shiplett. “I spent so much time working through these songs to make damn sure they properly represent who I am as a singer, songwriter and producer, but most importantly as a human who desires to connect and impact others with honesty and sincerity. I made this record as an offering to everyone, and fingers crossed they are able to find their own truth in it.”
