Malcolm Burn first made his musical mark in the ‘80s with Boys Brigade who scored a top 20 hit in Canada. Next, Malcolm connected with Daniel Lanois to record and produce Yellow Moon with the Neville Brothers and Oh Mercy for Bob Dylan. Stretching out on his own into the ‘90s, Malcolm produced the landmark album Living With The Law by Chris Whitely, as well as American Caesar for Iggy Pop and Human Wheels with John Mellencamp. His production for Emmylou Harris’ Red Dirt Girl earned him a Grammy award.
Now, he’s gearing up to release his own collection of material, with a renewed enthusiasm for creating unusual and evocative sonic landscapes filled with continuing left turns. His musical roots follow folk and classical genres up through rock, country, and experimental music.
“Wand’rin’ Star” is a song for the wandering heart, the restless soul who gets itchy feet when they’re tied down in one place for too long.
His contemporary version of “Wand’rin’ Star” from the film Paint Your Wagon is western musical music for the new century, with his resonant vocals at the forefront.
