In the fall of 2010, Squire and fellow Canadian songwriter Kate Maki travelled to Paco Loco Studio in El Puerto de Santa Maria to record two country songs. Calling It Quits/Crazy Tropical Survival Guide was released as a seven-inch two-song single and digital download on March 22, 2011.
After touring Canada together in 2011 in support of their seven-inch as well as Squire's second solo album, Frederick Squire Sings Shenandoah and Other Popular Hits, and Maki's fifth solo album, Moonshine, the duo decided to take a break from touring and settled in the Copper Cliff area of Sudbury to start a family.
