This song is by Daniel Lanois and appears on his debut album Acadie (1989) and on the live album Rockets (2004). Acadie was named the 20th greatest Canadian album of all time in Bob Mersereau's 2007 book The Top 100 Canadian Albums.
Lanois was born in Hull (now Gatineau) Quebec, Canada. Lanois started his production career when he was 17, recording local artists including Simply Saucer with his brother Bob Lanois in a studio in the basement of their mother's home in Ancaster, Ontario. Later, Lanois started Grant Avenue Studios in an old house he purchased in Hamilton, Ontario. He worked with a number of local bands, including Martha and the Muffins (for whom his sister Jocelyne played bass), Ray Materick, Spoons, and the Canadian children's singer Raffi. Lanois won a Juno Award in 1990 as most promising artist. Lanois has received 11 Grammy Awards for his work as a producer with various artists, including Bob Dylan, U2, Emmylou Harris and Neil Young. In 2005, he was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame. In June 2013, he received a lifetime achievement award at the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards.
