Bobby Parent Unleashes New Track "Dogs"
“I saw an angel in the marble and I carved till I set him free.” A Michelangelo quote that would be etched in Bobby Parent’s mind as he started on his new journey in sobriety. A journey that, at first, would uncover painful truths before revealing the genuine beauty and generosity of others.
The new single, “Dogs,” came about in a day as Parent was recovering from alcoholism and looking after a friend’s house in the Ottawa suburbs. Partly an observation of those suburbs but mostly a message of a need to reconcile his life from being an outsider in the throes of alcoholism, the weight of each lyric is countered by a lively, upbeat rhythm.
