The Magic Behind “Perfect Stranger”

“Perfect Stranger” isn’t just any song … it’s a labor of love.

Produced, engineered, and mixed by the talented Connor Pritchard, and mastered by Chris Holmes of Chris Holmes Productions in Kelowna, BC, this track is a true team effort.

Written by the band members Chris Goodwin, Patrick Michaud, Steve Smith, Chester Hewkin, and Connor Pritchard, it’s clear that a lot of heart went into making this tune.

A Heartbreak Story You Can’t Miss

This song dives deep into the feels, telling the story of two strangers meeting at a bar, both trying to escape their heartache.

They find comfort in each other’s company, sharing a fleeting but meaningful connection.

It’s got that classic country vibe with a fresh twist, blending old-school charm with modern production.

Chris Goodwin himself says, “This is by far the most ‘country’ song we’ve recorded to date, and we couldn’t be prouder. It reminds me of the country music I grew up listening to with my dad.”

Throwback Vibes with a Modern Twist

If you’re a fan of those classic country hits, you’re in for a treat.

Goodwin mentioned that “Perfect Stranger” would fit right into the Urban Cowboy soundtrack from the early 80s. “When we first heard the finished mix of ‘Perfect Stranger,’ the first thing I said to the guys was that this song would feel right at home on the Urban Cowboy soundtrack!”

It’s got that honky-tonk heartbreak feel, mixed with today’s production techniques.

In country music, the Front Porch has long been a place of reflection. A place where you can look at the life you have inside that front door. A place where time almost seems to stand still, where you can get away. It’s also a place where you can go to observe the world as it passes by you. To think about your place out there beyond the driveway.
