John McLachlan

With a life-long interest in the history of his home on Canada’s west coast, John’s songs, whether personal or historical, evoke rich landscapes with a strong connection to place in the tradition of songwriters such as Gordon Lightfoot and Stan Rogers.

Place and the passage of time are the threads that run through his songs. He writes as a way of making sense of who he is, where he’s been, where he’s going, and in general, of finding meaning in his life and of those characters who inhabit his songs.

It’s his hope that you will find some common threads in the songs he shares.
