Here we are on another Friday and an update on more artists for the upcoming compilation. We know we are draggin this out, but come on we need to put something on the website!
This time we decided to go with 2 artists that are both non Yer Bird and both Canadian. Yes, now that we are based out of Calgary (thats in Canada) we thought we would attempt to bring more than just maple syrup and hockey to mind when you think of the Great White North. You can now think of great music.
Firstly we are happy to announce Calgary's own:
Cam Penner! Cam is still new to even our ears as his last album "Trouble & Mercy" was my introduction to this folk/roots/blues based singer songwriter. The album blew me away and found its way onto our best of 2009 lists with his truly Canadiana tinged folk music. The song we have is an alternate version (well live version) that shows a touch more grit than the album recording. This is someone you all need to know - all those in the UK/Europe can check some upcoming dates on his website.
For the next artist we go all the way to the East coast of Canada and bring you:
The Mountains & The Trees! We are excited to bring this young talent and his amazing music on board. Jon Janes, who performs as The Mountain & The Trees is in the midst of finalizing his first full length album and we are bringing one of these new tracks to our compilation. While only having one EP to date (and a good one) after hearing this new track, I can only expect big things for Janes and the album. You will truly enjoy this discovery (and once again if you in Eastern Canada or the UK, upcoming dates on his MySpace page)!
