    NEW VIDEO FOR FIRST SINGLE "MISSISSIPPI WOMAN, MISSISSAUGA MAN" RELEASED   2017-09-02

    NEW ALBUM "SOMETHING I'VE DONE" SET FOR WORLDWIDE RELEASE ON OCTOBER 13!   2017-08-30

    Downchild's highly anticipated new Album "Something I've Done" is set for release on lucky Friday, October 13, 2017.

    The new CD will be available at the LIVE SHOWS starting on October 11th and is also available for PRE-ORDER NOW.

    Something I’ve Done is a truly collaborative effort, with Donnie "Mr. Downchild" Walsh writing the brisk instrumental “Evelyn,” Chuck Jackson penning “Albany, Albany” and the cheeky “Mississippi Woman, Mississauga Man,” bassist Gary Kendall chipping in “Mailbox Money” and “Take A Piece of My Heart,” keyboardist Michael Fonfara bringing “Something I’ve Done” and “Can’t Get Mad at You,” and drummer Mike Fitzpatrick offering “Into the Fire.”

    Rounding out the album’s stellar 10-track roster is “Worried About The World” by noted B.C.-based bluesman David Vest and “She Thinks I Do” by onetime Downchild member, late singer John Witmer, a song that had essentially been mothballed until now. “Quite a story with that song,” Walsh allows of Witmer’s rollicking but wryly mournful tune. “It’s never been part of our live set, we never recorded it and John passed away a long time ago (in 2004). I don’t think we played it even when John was alive. But it’s kind of a tribute to him.”
