Tchir's 3rd album, Wooden Castles Fall (2005) crosses a spectrum of folk-country laced with pedal-steel and Rhodes organ, horn-driven shuffles, and bar room ballads. Characters on this record include Ukrainian-Canadian moonshine brewers circa 1917, Canmore Hotel barflies asking Queen Lizzy on the old twenty bill for romantic advice, Parliament Peace Tower elevator operators, Alberta grain elevator peace operators, Great Lake princesses, and Athabasca valley dreamers. It was recorded with the help of many of Ottawa's finest young musicians, mostly regulars of the popular Nostalgica Café hootenanny. It was recorded by Jason Jaknunas in Sandy Hill, Ottawa, and features the musical support of Pierre Chrétien, Peter Webb, Craig Simon, John Carroll, Stephen Tchir, Al Bragg, Lindsay Ferguson, Steve Patterson, Ray Murray, Rozalind MacPhail, Nathan Morris, Jesse Cooke, Allyson Rogers, Erin Barnhardt, Neil Gerster, Phil Lafrenière, and Jason Jaknunas.

Thursday Heroes (live)

Thursday Heroes, which Tchir co-produced, is a collection of seven original poems and twelve original songs performed by regulars at the Café Nostalgica Open Stage, Ottawa, which Tchir co-hosted from 2001-2004.  The title track, written and performed by Trevor, is about the people who have made the place magic over the last few years.

Tchir's second CD, November (2001), features themes about young romance and commitment, spiritual fulfilment, and ecological responsibility.  It highlights Tchir's finger-picking guitar style, but is powered also by the Hammond and Rhodes organ of Souljazz Orchestra's Pierre Chrétien, the guitar of Chris Lochner, the bass of J.W. Jones Band's Nathan Morris, and the vocals of Peter Webb, Julie Larocque, Nadia Fauteux, and Jacob Two-Two's Mary-Kate Haché.  The album was recorded and mixed between October and April, 2001, by Jason Jaknunas at Raven Street Studios in Ottawa.
