We all need a little down time, some time to ourselves, and this song certainly captures that mood!

It builds nicely to the chorus and takes off from there.

Great track from his solid ‘No Boundaries’ album!”

Randy Owen, Country 107.3 Tillsonburg, ON

Introducing Freedom’s Note and “ALL WE KNOW”

Intro-Graphic-Iteration-1-At-Radio-December-28

If Rock ‘n’ Roll was fine wine, with Freedom’s Note, what you experience is akin to the finest among them.

Introducing Donny Synard (rhythm guitar, lead vocals), Danny Fewer, (lead guitar, backing vocals), Mark Stewart (bass, backing vocals) and Trevor Lethbridge (drums) — a complex bouquet of sound, consisting of a hint of Alberta hard work blended with authentic Atlantic undertones and a splash of bright Spanish colours. Their explosion of timbral flavour once casked in an obviously well-travelled, battle-tested barrel that has traversed the ages with pure heart and soul at its very core.

Freedom’s Note takes you on a sonic journey of varying energy to many places, through several feelings reminiscent of the rich Rock ‘n’ Roll history of legend before them, with subtle nods in homage to several other genres along the way.

Drawing on music influences from Guns ‘N Roses, Queen, Foo Fighters, Nickelback, Shania Twain and Pink, to name only a few, the foursome steadily grew audiences under the name Destranged and continued to awe those they performed for, with cover songs and top charting hits. In 2012, the integration of original written material was incorporated into their live shows garnering even more massive appeal and success, with the boys from Newfoundland performing in wider Alberta venues and opening for various renowned acts including Simple Plan, Finger Eleven, Trooper, Kim Mitchell, Mother Mother, Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil, and Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver fame.

Their edgy pop/rock vibe and compelling lyrics contributed to the release of a full album of original material launching Destranged from live band status to recording artists in their own right. Realizing a new band name was in order, they unanimously selected the most requested song from that album, and, Freedom’s Note took flight.

Drawing on personal experiences and creating melodies followed closely behind by lyrics, Freedom’s Note debut full-length album Trial By Fire is filled with songs of love, passion, fun and excitement. Recorded at multi award-winning studio, MCC Recording Studios (Calgary) under the direction of Grammy nominated producer, Johnny Gasparic, Freedom’s Note will launch “All We Know, the first single release to radio nationwide (December 28th, 2015) with full video support (January 4th, 2016).

“All We Know” is about carving your own path in life, taking the road less travelled and putting everything on the line no matter what consequences or barriers are put in front of you,” states Donny Synard. “Too many people look for the easiest or safest road in life.  “All We Know” is about seizing each moment and believing that anything is possible. BE INSPIRED!”

Freedom’s Note will expand their performances and showmanship to audiences during their first national tour in the summer of 2016.

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.
