For this project, not only did Wilton play keyboards, he also played all the guitar parts.
“It felt good to play guitar on this level, it’s been awhile. For my own band, the last time I played was for 2001’s “Broken” CD. After that I turned over the guitar playing to another guitar player, so getting back to playing the instrument which got me started in rock was a pleasure.”
Wilton also sang the character part of the Government Official who puts this travesty in motion.
“I guess I’m the villain of the story, and of history regarding Residential Schools. I tried to use a different style of voice for this character as opposed to using my regular voice heard in my other recordings. I thought it important to make a distinction between the two.”
When it hopefully comes to performing “Do You Remember Me?” as a theatrical production, Wilton will possibly have to make a choice as how to be involved. Vocalist, Guitarist, Keyboardist, Musical Director? “I’m not sure. I think it’ll depend on whether someone else can do the job better. If so, they’ll probably be welcome to do so”.
