I believe it was during a sound check for a Bird City show in Guelph, when Steph Yates and I realized we had a mutual admiration for Bossa nova music and the recordings of João Gilberto. In 2018, Steph and I started to get together fairly regularly to learn numerous compositions recorded by João. I wrote No Time For Love towards the end of that year. Like many of my favourite compositions, it emerged quickly and fully formed. Though the rhythms of Bossa nova aren't present, the harmonic movement of the song is greatly indebted to the beautiful guitar voicings of João. Without intention, it also happened to be recorded in the year of his passing.

João Gilberto, June 10th 1931 - July 6th 2019

Thank you for bringing such beautiful music into the world.
