One song from this album ("Woman of Labrador") was inspired by Elizabeth Goudie, a pioneer in Labrador, Canada and has been included in the Great Canadian Songbook.[2][3] In 2007 Andy wrote "Excuse Me Your Planet Is Burning". Andy is now retired and living on Cortes Island, BC where he performs at local events. Many of his recordings can be heard on SoundCloud. e.g.
