Meanwhile, the road had taken its toll on the enthusiastic front man and D’Ari felt it was necessary to regroup. Leaving behind the fast paced life of Toronto, D’Ari relocated to the country. This change of pace and finding inspiration in the passion of several pivotal Canadian songwriters including Brian MacMillan and Melissa Larkin, encouraged him to write with unprecedented honesty. With a new location, direction and sensibility, D’Ari set out to create a record that truly reflected the time and space in his life.
Calling upon some of his most respected friends and musicians to collaborate with, Country Porno Electric Fireplace is a courageously honest, layered mix of new and old influences that depicts the energy of every musician who helped fully realize each track. Thoroughly enjoying the process of collaborating with like-minded musicians on the new record, on any given night Nine Mile can now be experienced as a duo or as a seven-piece ensemble. Over the years, Nine Mile has toured internationally, sharing stages with The Black Keys, Joel Plaskett, G. Love and Special Sauce, Gomez, Xavier Rudd, Cowboy Junkies, Blackalicious, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Sarah Harmer, Donovan Frankenreiter and Pete Murray to name just a few. The band will soon be announcing tour dates that are set to take place throughout Fall 2009 in support of the new record which will be released on Dread Rock/Xiola distributed via Conveyor/Universal Music Canada.
