5x JUNO nominated/6x CFMA winning mando-maestro Andrew Collins Trio Release “And It Was Good” at Hugh’s Room on Fri. Oct. 21

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
September 12, 2016

Good Times Are Sure to be Had when 5x JUNO nominated/6x CFMA winning mando-maestro ANDREW COLLINS TRIO release ”AND IT WAS GOOD” HUGH’S ROOM – FRI OCT 21, 8:30PM

The Andrew Collins Trio

“Light of touch, fast of wit, copiously imaginative, and a musical scholar of the highest distinction, Toronto mandolin virtuoso pulls out all the stops” ~ Toronto Star

“Boundaries? What boundaries? Toronto mandolinist Andrew Collins ignores them all!” ~ Penguin Eggs

“To call Andrew Collins a master of the mandolin would be putting it mildly…. artfully arranged string music perhaps best described as ‘chambergrass’ shines through – 4/5 stars” ~ Exclaim! Magazine

Andrew Collins is a part of the firmament. He’s the mercurial, 5x JUNO-nominated/6x CFMA winningmando-maestro behind two of Canada’s top-billed string bands – The Foggy Hogtown Boys and the Creaking Tree String Quartet. An adventurous musical explorer, he lands somewhere between the re-imagined worlds of Béla Fleck and Newgrass invader, David Grisman.

Together with fellow members of the Andrew Collins Trio (ACT) – string guru Mike Mezzatesta and in-the-pocket bassist James McEleney – good times are sure to be had with their sophomore release And It Was Good CD.

Sitting atop a catalogue representing 2 solo records, 11 collaborative releases, and 2 with his Trio, Collins appears to live by the old adage, “idle hands are the devil’s workshop” – because “And It Was Good” tackles Creation itself – likely keeping him just ahead of the devil’s grasp.

On his Trio’s new disc, all three players assault the 7 days of Creation, brilliantly rendering each day’s story to secular musical fruition in this new, Chamber Grass disc. “And It Was Good” IS good – a labour of love inspired by the late Oliver Schroer, if not overseen by his musical specter. The result is a lush-sounding, multi-layered composition bringing fresh meaning to an age-old story while demonstrating the depth of musicianship from each of these three inspirational players.

The trio’s instrumentation (mandolin, mandocello, fiddle, guitar, bass, mandola) is augmented by the Phantasmagoria String Quartet to add necessary shading and colour to each track, all carefully composed by Collins. Opening with “Light from the Darkness”, the use of mandolins, bass and strings transforms the concept of nothingness into the semblance of light appearing through two distinct movements that build in intensity as the world awakens.

The title track representing the last day breaks into what can only be called a gleeful, up-tempo celebration of life itself. The mandolin-driven piece draws heavily upon bluegrass with its bursts of fiddle, backdrop of acoustic guitar while the bass holds down the bottom. Everyone is clearly having a Good time in “And It Was Good”, now that the hard work is done!

The Andrew Collins Trio– admired for their absolute virtuosity – have been somewhat reborn through their re-creation of a story that brings a certain reverence to the party – and a distinctly unique approach to ensemble playing that represents a Second Coming of …shall we say 🙂 ….biblical proportions.

Canadiana Singer-Songwriter Harlan Wells Releases “Waiting For June” at The Cameron House Saturday, May 14th

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 25, 2016

Harlan Wells

[Toronto, ON]  Why should you be at The Cameron House in Toronto on Saturday, May 14, 2016? One of Canada’s finest singer-songwriters, Harlan Wells, is throwing a CD release party for his latest album, Waiting For June, and it’s “…the sort of album that kind of grabs you by the hand and says “come on in.”

Producer/engineer Peter Hamilton (Blue Rodeo, Leonard Cohen, Steve Earle) and Wells each share the same reverence for the seminal Canadian group, The Band. With this influence and approach in mind, they began recording at Canterbury Studio in Toronto with the intention of producing an all-organic, live off-the-floor, anti-sampling, anti-computer, album of new Harlan Wells songs. Described as Northern Americana, or Canadiana, the new record Waiting for June, is a compelling alchemy of cross-genres such as country, folk, roots rock, and blues. Ultimately, it’s a singer/songwriter’s record. However, Wells’ stellar song writing is not the only reason you should be at The Cameron House on May 14th for his CD release party. His band, which consists of Jillian Mendez (back-up vocals), Peter Hamilton (bass), Eric Morin (drums), Russell Gray (guitar), John Smith (accordion and organ), and the legendary Burke Carroll (pedal steel) are incredible musicians who have worked with some of the biggest names in Canadian music and this promises to be an evening of music that you won’t soon forget.

“Reminiscent of the great Canadian singer/songwriters like Ian Tyson and Gordon Lightfoot” ~ Billboard Magazine

“He’s good, he’s very good.” ~ Gordon Lightfoot

“In twenty years, I turned down a lot of artists seeking management, including Ron Sexsmith and Alison Krauss; I wasn’t about to let Harlan Wells slip by me.” ~ Barry Harvey (Gordon Lightfoot)

“Harlan Wells, a Troubadour in the classic sense.” ~ Lenny Stoute, CASHBOX Magazine

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Harlan Wells began playing music professionally when he was fifteen years old; by eighteen, he had left home for the road. Thousands of miles of highway, hundreds of small towns and antiquated hotel rooms, as well as, the sordid characters which inhabited them, left an indelible impression which would later influence his prolific song writing. Wells affirms that his youth was abandoned and still lies scattered along the Trans-Canada Highway. Most of his twenties were spent playing the Toronto club circuit, including the venerable El Mocambo and The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern. One night, while performing in a popular Yorkville club, music legend Keith Emerson lunged at Wells as he stepped off the stage. He grabbed Wells by his shirt collar, looked him straight in the eye, and not so gently offered some wise, yet gin-soaked, advice: “write your own songs or perish.”

Wells believes, “At the end of the day, you have to be true to yourself and believe in what you do. To tell you the truth, I write these songs for myself. My music has always been my catharsis; it’s what has kept this world from driving me stark raving mad.”

Waiting for June is available now on iTunes but there’s nothing quite like getting a CD autographed by the artist on the night of his very special CD release party. Saturday, May 14th at The Cameron House, is where every roots rock fan in the Greater GTA ought to be.

Canadian Country-Pop Duo Northern Heights Release Debut Single, “Small Town Getaway”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
August 1, 2015

Northern Heights Small Town Getaway
[Airdrie, Alberta]  Canadian country/pop duo Northern Heights makes warm and lively tunes that tell tales of memory, hope, heartbreak, human connections and the joys of life’s twisting path. Steered by experienced, gifted artists and songwriters Chad McMonagle (guitar, mandolin, banjo, vocals) and Eli Budwell (lead vocals), the group’s vivid lyrics, bright, lush instrumentation and vocal harmonies, infectious hooks and engaging live performances invite audiences to join them in celebrating each moment through well-crafted music.

Inspired by their love of contemporary country international superstars including Lady Antebellum and Keith Urban as well as favorite Canadian country acts like Dallas Smith and Brett Kissel, Northern Heights’ dynamic synergy and love for experimenting with fresh sounds shimmers in their premiere single, “Small Town Getaway.” Co-produced by Juno Award and Canadian Country Music Award (CCMA) nominee musician Chris Byrne (The Road Hammers) and lauded touring musician and producer Johnny Gasparic (Charlie Major, Jake Matthews, Ray Griff), the catchy, summery song was recorded at MCC Recording Studio in Calgary, winner of multiple CCMAs. This stunning recorded debut also features backing band of all stars: one of Canada’s most sought after live and session drummers, CCMA Drummer of the year Chad Melchert (Gord Bamford, Deric Ruttan); multi-award winning guitarist Russell Broom (Alee, Lady Antebellum, Jann Arden); CCMA Keyboard Player of the Year Bart McKay and CCMA Bass Player of the Year nominee Chris Byne.

Long-time collaborators, McMonagle and Budwell first bonded through their passion for music and their ability to draw melodies, harmonies and poetry from their everyday lives. The two met as young teenagers and though living far apart, formed a pop punk band, writing songs together via live chats on the Internet. As part of the five-piece ensemble Run Romeo Run, they played shows throughout Canada, opened for rock groups such as Loverboy and showcased at Canadian Music Week. Though the project broke up, McMonagle and Budwell recorded an EP as a pop duo and continued to keep in touch as they explored the music industry and fine-tuned their respective musical talents. A string aficionado, McMonagle began a career booking cross-Canada tours for bands and promoting shows while learning the intricacies of acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, banjo, piano, bass, plus drums. Budwell attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City where he studied voice and musical theatre, traveling the U.S. as Conrad Birdie in a touring production of Bye Bye Birdie.

Bursting with song ideas from their many escapades, the two reunited to write together and came up with the concept for Northern Heights in January of 2015 after realizing the new tracks they were recording were tailor-made for the emotional and imaginative stories that can be expressed through country music. The pair decided to move into a house together and build a home studio in their basement, and the tunes have been flowing ever since.

McMonagle and Budwell have won multiple contests over the years for their work and have had their songs featured on the radio and played hundreds of shows together across Canada. Through Northern Heights, they are able to combine the rich sounds of the country and pop music genres with their background in punk, rock and musical theatre in order to create music that is both relatable to audiences and full of surprises.

“Small Town Getaway” is available NOW on iTunes. Northern Heights is currently on a Canadian radio tour that will end in Halifax at the 2015 Canadian Country Music Awards show in Halifax.

Introducing Laurie Brown of LJB Artist Management (Managing with Integrity)

LJB Artist Management LogoFor those of you who are following Scully Love Promo and me, Christine Bode, through social media, you’ve probably noticed that I have updated my website but I no longer have a Facebook business page. I deleted it about a year ago because at this point, as a solopreneur who works with musicians & artists, I don’t have the budget to pay to play on Facebook.

However, I have been utilizing the power of Twitter (for free) to make new connections and recently had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of a lady who I have a lot in common with. We both work in the music industry and think a lot alike in terms of how important it is to help each other out there in the social media stratosphere in order that we can all be successful at what we do.

Meet Edmonton based Laurie Brown of LJB Management (Artist Management), an artist manager with integrity, who can help both part-time and full-time musicians manage their day-to-day business operations and build their career.

With a professional designation in “Music Business – Artist Management” from Berklee College of Music, Artist Manager, Laurie Brown can bring a wealth of experience and organizational skills to your career and allow you, the artist, to do what you do best – create and play music.

MANAGEMENT SERVICES:

Craig Moritz and Laurie Brown

Country singer-songwriter Craig Moritz with his manager, Laurie Brown.

LJB Management offers services for full-time and part-time musicians whose careers have reached the point where they need assistance with day-to-day business operations. LJB Management helps artists with Career Planning, Grant Writing, Copyrights, Royalty Collection, Festival and Showcase Submissions, Branding, Corporate and Event Bookings and more.

MANAGEMENT CONSULTING and PROJECT WORK:

Not every artist needs to have a full-time manager on monthly retainer. SOME artists need assistance with SOME projects SOME of the time. LJB Management also offers management consulting services, tailored to each individual artist’s needs, at an hourly rate. Assistance with industry driven projects such as SOCAN paperwork, grant writing, showcase and festival submissions, and building a business/career plan is provided on a “per project” basis.

CORPORATE BOOKING:

LJB Management has a unique and diversified roster of talent to bring to corporate and private events. Whether planning a corporate party, family event, charitable fundraiser, sporting event, or any other gathering where entertainment is required, LJB Management will have an artist that will fit the bill.

Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA)

Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta (ATAA)

Laurie keeps her rates as low as possible as she knows how tough it is for artists these days.  Her rates for consulting are $50 per hour (a normal consult is about 2 hours) and $25 per hour for projects. She will do an estimate on the project so the artist knows up front what the costs will be.  If the hours are higher she’ll honour her original estimate (as long as the project hasn’t changed drastically) and if the hours are lower, she charges the lesser rate. For grants, the fees vary depending on what type of grant you are applying for and what is required (i.e.: marketing plans add a lot of time to an application if the artist does not already have one), but Laurie will provide a quote for grant writing as well.

“Gun Kontrol” by The Trygger Twins Packs a Pistol (New Video)

The Trygger TwinsI don’t usually publicly discuss my political opinions…

I’ve only ever voted for the NDP or Green parties

…or talk about complex issues such as same-sex marriage,

Hallelujah #SCOTUS for making it legal in all 50 states in the USA!

…or taking religious studies out of the classroom

I’m against mandatory religious curriculum in public or high schools unless all religions are studied, as I feel that an individual should be an adult before making up his or her mind about religious or spiritual beliefs and should be free to study them in college or university if they choose.

…or legalizing marijuana.

I’m all for it.

However, when a friend of mine turned me onto this crazy, thought-provoking video by The Trygger Twins – because I’m concerned about the USA’s lack of gun control and the NRA‘s mandate – I found it to be a powerfully delicious little gem that packs a pistol, er, I mean, punch. What do you think?

Here’s “Gun Kontrol” by The Trygger Twins.

Singer-Songwriter Glenn McFarlane Releases Video for “Offense Scores, Defense Wins Games”

Glenn McFarlaneSinger-songwriter Glenn McFarlane hails originally from New Brunswick and now makes his home in Brampton, Ontario. In addition to his solo endeavours, he is also one/half of the Celtic and East Coast duo Brown Ale and one/third of the Celtic-Rock trio Celteclectic. Glenn is a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, harmonica, mandolin, accordion, bouzouki) who is the President and co-founder of the Brampton Folk Club, the 2009 Brampton Arts Person of the Year and a songwriter who was honoured with the 2011 OCFF Songs From the Heart Winner (Humour). He has released one solo CD to date, Food For Thought, and is about to release his second CD, Music and Friends.

With Glenn, you get a high energy, well-paced set of primarily fun and funny folk songs.  Some have an East Coast feel to them, others are more country, while still others have elements of rock or even world music in them. His well-crafted originals have a sing-a-long familiarity to them that gets the audience involved.

The one theme throughout Glenn’s songs is camaraderie. He sings about family and friends (“Music and Friends”, “It’s a Beautiful Day for a Beer”), likes to make fun of himself  (“Middle Aged and Overweight”, “Music, Sports, Sex and Beer”), raps about his East Coast roots (“Let’s Talk New Brunswick”, “Lobster Roll”)  brings dramatic  historical events to life (“Newfoundland 9-1-1”,  The Christmas Truce”), and balances it all out with the odd love song (“The Wedding Video”, “Come See the Stars”). You will be entertained!

In his latest video, Glenn McFarlane performs his original song “Offense Scores, Defense Wins Games”, which will be featured on his upcoming CD “Music and Friends”. The song is dedicated to Stan Butler (Brampton/North Bay Battalion) and José Mourinho (Chelsea Blues) and takes a lighthearted look at what it takes to win. The song is engineered and co-produced by Wendell Ferguson at The Dungeon, Toronto. The video also features Keith McFarlane as the coach and Ryan Hind as the owner. Special thanks to the Ontario Soccer Centre in Woodbridge and the Mississauga Munro Table Hockey Tournament.


On Saturday, November 1st, Glenn McFarlane will be releasing his second solo CD at a fundraiser concert for Brampton Civic Hospital at the Brampton Golf Club (7700 Kennedy Road), starting at 8 pm. As the title implies, “Music and Friends” is a collection of original songs celebrating two things that are very important to him. The songs are fun and lively folk songs that reflect his East Coast roots, along with strong elements of country, folk-rock and world music, with an underlying theme of camaraderie throughout the album. Joining Glenn will be his brother Keith on percussion, along with special guests Les Smith and Jon Grant from Brown Ale and Celteclectic. All proceeds for the concert will be donated to the Brampton Civic Hospital. For more information, please visit Glenn’s website at www.glennmcfarlane.ca.

Live Wire Music Series Presents The Claytones and The Slocan Ramblers on Fri. Jan. 24th

There is a tremendous co-bill coming up soon to kick off the Live Wire Music Series at the Octave Theatre. On Friday, Jan. 24, The Claytones, a great new alt country group from the heart of the OttawaValley, will share the evening with The Slocan Ramblers, a dynamic young Toronto foursome that plays bluegrass and old-time music flawlessly and with an uncommon flair. These two enormously talented groups will give a spectacular show at The Octave!  Remember – you can now buy your tickets online at www.livewiremusicseries.ca.
The Claytones

The Claytones were born a few years ago when Anders Drerup and Kelly Prescott were cast in the acclaimed theatrical production, Grievous Angel -The Legend of Gram Parsons. Anders played the title role and Kelly was Emmy Lou Harris. Their undeniable chemistry led to the formation of The Claytones — together with bass player Adam Puddington, they have been wowing audiences with superb vocal harmonies and impressive instrumental prowess ever since. The National Post named them one of ‘5 Canadian bands to watch for in 2012’. Take a look at this live video to get a taste of what they do:

 

The Slocan Ramblers

The Slocan Ramblers started turning heads in early 2009 while playing casual gigs in the Toronto ‘roots music’ scene. Their weekly local pub gigs became a staple of the city’s thriving acoustic music activity. The Ramblers quickly earned a reputation across Canada for energetic live performances, impressive musicianship and uncanny ability to convert anyone in their path into a fan. The Slocan Ramblers have moved far beyond their pub origins.  Career highlights include standing ovations at the legendary Mariposa Folk Festival, opening for Steve Martin on the main stage at Toronto Jazz Fest, and a popular West Coast tour last summer.  The intensity and drive forged in their early bar-room gigs continue to set them apart — they are outstanding!  Check out the Ramblers live in the two songs in this video:


Live Wire Music Series presents
The Claytones and The Slocan Ramblers
Friday, Jan. 24, 7:30 pm
Octave Theatre, 711 Dalton Ave, Kingston (Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd. & the 401)

$20 in advance and $25 at the door — available now at Brian’s Record Option, Tara Foods or online at www.livewiremusicseries.ca

 The Claytones give what so many other groups only promise.  Exquisite, classic, country-soaked harmonies.  Originals that stand proudly beside the classic songs they cover with conviction.  A stage presence that marks them as serious professionals — The Claytones deliver!

James Keelaghan,  Artistic Director, Georgian Bay Folk Society

The Slocan Ramblers put on one of the most vibrant shows of acoustic music I’ve seen in some time. It’s rare for Canadians (especially young Canadians) to play this music with such authority, passion and yet ability for experimentation. Chops galore…and a handsome bunch of fellas.
