I’m pretty flipping excited to finally let you know about the upcoming EP All We Know
. Mixed by Sandro Perri (Constellation Records
), it was recorded mainly in rural Ontario with Andy Magoffin (engineer for Great Lake Swimmers, Constantines
) and at Richard Reed Parry’s (Arcade Fire
guitarist) Skybarn studio in Montreal.
During the sessions I worked closely with a l’il band of Marshall Bureau (drums) and JJ Ipsen (bass) who were instrumental (ahem) in the shape the songs took. Long-time collaborators Pietro Amato (the Luyas, Bell Orchestre – French horn) and Sebastian Chow (Islands – violin) are joined by new in the shape of Pemi Paull (viola) and Andy Magoffin’s alto horn contributions. I even had a crack at playing the baritone saxophone on this puppy. I really hope you like it. It’s out later in May and you can Pre-Order it here (CD // Digital).
European Band Tour May/June 2017
I’m really excited to head back to Europe with the band that joined me for the Go On tour in 2015. Michael Feuerstack will be on the electric guitar, lap steel and throat pipe (if you’re in Europe, go see him right now with the Luyas), Tessa Kautzman (Loon) on the bass/keys/vocals, mr. Tibo (Gloze) on the drums and sampler and Greggy Burton (Bantam Wing) gets to have a piano this time to go along with his euphonium, keyboard, percussion and mouth sounds. Along with the new songs we’ve been really honing the old ones and I can’t wait to share them all with you!
The band will tour through Europe starting this month, including a headline slot at Theatron Pfingstfestival in Munich’s Olympic Park as well as a couple of shows with our friends in Wintersleep. First ever Swiss shows, too! Details belowwwww
