Hello folks, 

Apologies for the long delay since the last time I have posted news to the website: things have been very busy with my photo-modeling career so it has quite simply not been tenable to get around to it.
Although my brand of Canadiana Cowboy music has been extensively covered by the international media for many years now, I am sure you have all been wondering when Tim Hus would be featured in a French Fashion Magazine. Good news: it's been a long-time coming but that time has finally arrived!
JDD Magazine (Le Journal du Dimanche) published in Paris, France sent a world renowned Austrian Photographer working out of New York City, USA to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains of Alberta to chronicle
 Poesie Cowboy - Dans le Grand Oest americain le dernier rodeo des mots”. It seems the fashion industry has run out of good looking people in Milan, Los Angeles, etc. so they turned their eyes to the North Country and it was a stroke of good fortune that they caught wind of my headlining feature concert at the Cowboy Festival at the arena in Caroline, Alberta. The results are published on page 64 of the November 2023 issue of Le Journal du Dimanche. In case you are not fluent in the french language the english translation to the caption is transcribed below:

Country Singer
Vintage cotten checked western shirt (Levi's)
Bandana in white wilk twill (Celine Homme) 
Santos sunglasses (Cartier) 
Ride ring in 925 silver and black onyx (Hermes) 
Gold steel bracelets (Gucci)
Personal hat

Note: The Cartier sunglasses are available from Holt Renfrew for $1365 and the ring from Hermes Paris is only $2150. If you are interested in the bracelet please contact Gucci directly. My hat is not for sale as I need it for upcoming gigs.  Sorry, I gotta go now as I need to do some rust paint touch-ups on the van before heading for my underwear photo shoot for Stanfield's long johns at the factory in Truro, Nova Scotia. It's a long way to go and I have only a short time to get there….good work if you can get it…… talk to ya soon!

Happy New Year and all the best for 2023

On December 29, 2022 Canadian cowboy/folk icon and western songwriter extraordinaire Ian Tyson passed away at the age of 89. I have been a long-time fan of Ian’s music and always performed a selection of his songs during my own performances on hundreds of hotel saloon and community hall stages along the endless trail over the course of many years of concert touring.  In the early days, when I was teaching myself to play acoustic guitar and learn up quintessential cowboy songs, I would listen to Tyson’s albums endlessly. I would always see the Stony Plain Records logo on his album covers and it was a very exciting day and an early career highlight when I was offered the opportunity to sign a recording contract with the same company in 2008. It sure was a great feeling to be recording for the same record label as the legendary cowboy singer Ian Tyson! As label-mates over the past 15 years I have had the opportunity to cross paths with Ian and share concert stages with him on numerous occasions. I have also become good friends with many members of Ian’s legendary “Chinook Arch Rider’s Band”.  Thom Moon, Jeff Bradshaw, and Myran Szott are featured musicians on Ian’s seminal and platinum selling “Cowboyography” album and I have also had the honour of touring and recording with the same musicians in my own Travelin' Outfit.

Today I am remembering my father who passed away earlier this year. He was born on September 14, 1935 in Hamburg, Germany and was the world’s greatest traveler, vagabond, and adventurer! I know that some of you had the good fortune of meeting him somewhere out there on the road or perhaps even at one of my stops on the never-ending-highways over the years (he frequently attended our concert performances in BC and Alberta). He spoke 5 languages, was a gifted storyteller, singer of songs, and a one-of-a-kind character that left an enduring impression on anybody that he met. As a young man with a dream to see the world he hitch-hiked out of Europe with his friend Bodo Kugelmann in the 1950’s with a combined $17 in their pockets and a curiosity to learn about life. After 24 months of being on the road full-time they found themselves in Singapore where Bodo got homesick. The two friends shook hands and parted ways: Bodo returning to Germany while my dad slung his rucksack over his shoulder and journeyed on alone. This first trip lasted 7 years and circumvented the globe 4 times before he finally sailed into his home port of Hamburg aboard a merchant vessel working as an able-bodied seaman. Eventually his travels took him to 101 countries with endless adventures along the way: he hitch-hiked and rode freight trains, worked as an electrician in Africa, bricklayer in Buenes Aires, helped to lay the rails for the West Australian Railway, carpenter, cabinet-maker, farmhand, truck-driver, language teacher, merchant seaman (7 different ships, 2 stowaway trips) repairing boxcars for the CPR at Alyth yards, rode the Trans-Siberian railway from end to end, imprisoned in jail in 5 different countries and a hundred other things. Along the way he wore out 6 backpacks and 24 pairs of shoes! In the 1970's he married my mom and immigrated to Canada and built his own timber house on Kootenay Lake where I was born. In later years he was an enthusiastic beekeeper and brewed the very best homemade beer (according to my long-time bull fiddle player Spider who considers himself to be an expert in such matters). I have always been so proud to have him as my father and miss him very much. Nobody told stories like Helmut Hus! The Globe and Mail Newspaper published a feature on his life last month:

Globe and Mail Lives Lived: Helmut Hus wanted his ashes to ride the rails - just like he did

Tim's song "Mountain Fire" about British Columbia forest fires and wild land firefighters has certainly been getting a lot of airplay this summer. We are thinking about all of our friends facing tough times in the mountains and valleys of BC!

Hus brought his guitar down to the CBC studios in Calgary for a sit-down with Eye-Opener host Angela knight to talk about campfire songs. Even though there is a fire ban in effect in most of western Canada there is certainly no shortage of smoke! Here is a link to the clip for you to enjoy Tim Hus on CBC Calgary Eye-Opener

For those of you who can't make it out on Halloween Night, here's something else that is pretty spooky:

Check out Rob Heule's new North Face Ski Film with Hus as narrator:
Probably not quite the "Rocky Mountain version of David Attenborough" but a fun little piece of Western Canadiana for sure!
