Rik Emmett for Triump fame has reissued 11 of his solo titles digitally, marking the first time the collections have been made available online

Rik Emmett, who is well-known for his time fronting Canadian rockers Triumph and leading a successful solo career, has reissued his 11 solo albums digitally for the first time via Round Hill Records.

The titles, which were released digitally Friday (July 10), include “Ten Invitations” (1998), “Swing Shift” (1998), “Raw Quartet” (1999), “Live At Berklee” (2000), “Handiwork” (2003), “Good Faith” (2003), “Strung-Out Troubadours” (2006), “Live At Hugh’s Room” (2007), “Liberty Manifesto” (2007), “Push & Pull” (2009) and “Marco’s Secret Songbook” (2012).

“As my loyal fans will tell you, I’m not the kind of artist who spends a lot of time and energy looking back,” Emmett said in a statement. “But it has been nice to feel there’s a partner who places value on the history of my work beyond the Triumph years. I don’t think of myself as a difficult artist: I’d like to think I’m easy-going and cooperative. But I have a lot of decades of experience in the music business, and I know that an eclectic catalogue of music like this presents Round Hill with some, ummm, unique challenges.”

He added, “It’s gratifying to find patronage that can breathe new life and energy into the public’s awareness of the catalogue. I’m glad that Round Hill respects the work I did, and the music I made. My heart and soul is in this collection. So, I only hope the best for Round Hill, as they try to make the digital universe of the 21st century, with its infinite challenges, aware of a humble troubadour from Canada.”
