Klick was given a grant on behalf of Creative BC and the Province of British Columbia. After a 14 day self-isolation after returning home from Nashville, TN in March, and losing his 40-date Western Canadian summer tour due to COVID-19 cancellations, Klick wanted to give back to his fans and the music industry. His idea was to write and record a song using all Canadian songwriters and musicians.
“I’ve seen friends, fellow artists, and the music industry suffer from the pandemic,” said Klick.
“I was gifted with some money from Creative BC and the Province of British Columbia to help me out during this time, and I wanted to give back to the music community. So I contacted some friends in the industry and used the money given to me by the government to help support them.”
Klick self-produced and edited the project, and had each musician record tracks for the song using their home studios. Correspondence was done entirely by Skype, FaceTime, email, and phone, and sent to Klick by Google Drive, WeTransfer, or Dropbox.
“Wonder of the World” puts a fun twist on a travelling song and gives listeners a little bit of an insight into Klick’s new sound and new music to come. A music video showcasing each musician is coming out on Aug. 17. across Klick’s Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube accounts.
You can listen to “Wonder of the World” on all major streaming platforms.
