From No Mean City's failed neighbours, failed nations come. 2007's Ours And The Shepherds is a collection of Canadian war stories from WWI through to the current missions in Afghanistan. 13 songs inspired by, and in part about, Canadians living with the memory of war zone suffering: James Loney, Senator Romeo Dallaire, Sgt. Tommy Prince, Chaplain William Henry Davis, Frank P. Dixon, and John McRae, to name a few. Ours And The Shepherds earned a 2007 Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for Best Songwriter. Penguin Eggs deemed it "a thoroughly wonderful and truly important addition to the canon of Canadian folk music."
