Blair Packham is usually up to something cool.

Maybe he’s co-writing for his next album, or singing on a ship off the coast of Greenland. He could be playing a show on Camden Street in Dublin, or in Vancouver teaching a class in songwriting. He and Ron Sexsmith might be co-producing a Christmas song for Andy Kim, or he could be writing songs for a kids show in his studio in Toronto.

Lately, Blair has been mixing a collection of songs he calls The Impossible Dream. “I’ve made an album that’s mostly just acoustic guitar and vocal, backed up by up-right bass, drums, and backing vocals. Not studio-slick, but a little more open and natural-sounding.”

Fun and funny, Blair’s been writing songs for over 40 years. The Jitters, Blair’s band in the 1980s, crossed Canada countless times headlining, and opening shows for legends like The Kinks, Heart, Huey Lewis and the News, The Byrds, or sharing stages with Blue Rodeo, Gowan, and the Northern Pikes.

More recently, Blair has placed songs in TV and film soundtracks, such as Dawson’s Creek, Beyblade, Spliced and many more. Zombie Town, the 2023 feature film starring Dan Ackroyd and Chevy Chase, showcases Blair’s song “Lucky Me.”
