I first heard this song from Chris Kirby on CBC2. It was created for their compilation album in 2011 called Road Songs. A really great song with echoes of Steely Dan among others. Up till now, I have not been able to find in online to present here for all of you to enjoy. I did a search yesterday (I do this on a regular basis for this song) and it was recently uploaded. But first, a bit about the artist. Chris is from St John’s, Newfoundland. His sound can only be coined as R&B, but R&B with an east coast twist. He is an up and coming star with astonishing song writing skills. The band is Chris Kirby and the Marquees and they have 2 albums out with a new one on the way. The video below is actually 2 songs. The first is “Free Man” and is the song I was looking for. The second is an Amy Winehouse tribute, “Valerie”. Enjoy.

Nice sound. Sounds like he shares some musical DNA with Norah Jones and Stevie Wonder
I heard Steely Dan the first time I listened.
