Summerside singer-songwriter Johnny Oliver has released his second album, I’m Not Up For Sale. His debut album, The Reason‚ came out in May 2008. It won Johnny nominations for Male Vocalist and Country Recording of the Year at the 2009 Music PEI Awards.
Johnny went back into the studio to produce his second album, I’m Not Up For Sale‚ at Guernsey Cove Parlour Productions with Gordon Belsher. His goal with this CD, he says, was to show a greater diversity in his choice of songs, while staying true to his country roots and his desire to produce original material.
I’m not Up For Sale was released in June 2009. The title track, “I’m not Up For Sale‚“ is a ballad about holding onto one’s pride despite the many trials and tribulations that one has to face. Johnny has either written or co-written all of the songs on this album. His wife and two daughters have played major roles in the creation of this new album. His wife Joan co-wrote four songs, while his daughters help with studio production. Johnny has a three-piece band with his two daughters, Dallas (bass) and Dakota (keyboard, sax). They call themselves The Johnny D’s.
