FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Winnipeg, MB – February 27th, 2017

Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories – Cara Luft and JD Edwards – are bringing their signature vocal blend and visceral live performances to Ontario and Quebec this MarchThe duo will be performing in Hamilton Saturday March 25 at Mills Hardware.  All tourdates listed below.

The 2016 Canadian Folk Award nominees have spent the past 2 years building an international buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity, dynamic shows and equally well-matched guitar prowess, something that doesn’t come around often.  Cara packs a mean banjo as well.

A self-professed “study in contrasts,” Luft’s folkie yin proves a perfect match for Edwards’ rocker yang.  Thrown together purely by accident for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre, The Small Glories is a partnership that could almost make you believe in fate.   The Winnipeg Free Press asks, “can two singer-songwriters be better than one? Yes, emphatically, yes, if the two in question are Cara Luft and JD Edwards… It’s our loss they didn’t [join forces] sooner… It’s magic.”

Their 2016 debut album “Wondrous Traveler” is steeped in classic song structure, delivering instantly appealing melodic Americana with first-rate playing.  Reviews in Pitchfork, No Depression, Songlines and R2 have brought international attention to the duo.  The album found its way onto many critic’s Top 10 lists across North America and Europe, and The Small Glories are finding themselves on stages from Vancouver to London and beyond.

Together, Luft and Edwards are a musical tour de force, a case of 1 + 1 = 3.

STRONGMAN SELLS OUT ALBUM RELEASE SHOW Second Night Added March 4 @Millshardware @sonicunyon #hamont

STRONGMAN SELLS OUT ALBUM RELEASE SHOW
Second Night Added Saturday March 4 at Mills Hardware
(HAMILTON, ON) Powering toward the arrival of his spectacular new album No Time Like Now (out March 10, 2017 on Sonic Unyon Records), Strongman announced that the Friday March 3 release show is now sold out. Mills Hardware today announced a second show on Saturday, March 4, with tickets available now through Ticketfly. Tickets are available for $20 (plus service charges) in advance, or $30 at the door.
BUY tickets here: goo.gl/4K0Jnl

Award-winning Canadian bluesman Steve Strongman returns with an intoxicating shot of raw electrified blues with his latest album No Time Like Now. The 10-track collection is a shout-out to a lifelong love of blues in all its shapes and shadings, from rough-hewn electric blues, blue-collar hollers and swampy stompers to soulful groovers and hushed, heartfelt ballads.

Backed by an impressive group of players including drummers Dave King and Adam Warner, bassists Rob Szabo and Alex Fraser, and keyboardist Jesse O’Brien the band is pure fire — both athletically limber and wickedly tight. The session also features a stellar guitar cameo from Randy Bachman on Strongman’s muscular cover of Bachman-Turner Overdrive’s “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet”. No Time Like Now buzzes with fresh energy. It’s a loose, playful and reinvigorated set.

WATCH the Southern Souls video for “Love Love Love” here: goo.gl/hQCNA5

“I think every artist owes it to themselves to continue to grow and explore new ground, while still holding onto the thing that made them want to play in the first place,” says Steve Strongman. “This record does that for me – it’s exciting and honest.”

“This record was a challenge to make because we definitely wanted to push the boundaries of what Steve had done before,” says producer/co-writer Rob Szabo. “We experimented, we tinkered, we argued, we agreed, and in the end I think we got something that’s very different from anything he’s ever done but still 100% Strongman. I have to hand it to Steve for having the courage to push his limits as much as he did.”

STREAM the single for “No Time Like Now” here:  goo.gl/R6hIAx

The album’s title track and lead single is an anthem to making the most of the moment, a sentiment that flows throughout the album. But that urgency never displaces musical mastery, and No Time Like Now doesn’t disappoint on that count. From the skittering swamp rock of “Money in the Bank”, to the rollicking, gospel-tinged “Love Love Love”, to the nakedly reflective ballad “The Day They Carry Me Away”, the album finds Strongman and longtime collaborator Szabo delivering the goods in every way.

The artist’s breakthrough 2012 release A Natural Fact was hailed as a standout, earning Maple Blues Awards for Recording, Song-writer and Guitarist Of The Year, in addition to a 2013 JUNO Award for Blues Recording of the Year. In 2014 he was thrice-nominated for Maple Blues Awards (Guitar Player, Electric Act and Entertainer of the Year), and in 2015 received a second JUNO nomination for Blues Album of the Year (for Let Me Prove It To You). Strongman has shared the stage with international blues royalty including BB King, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, Joe Cocker, Robert Cray, Ronnie Earl, Roy Clark, Otis Clay, and Jeff Healey, and will be touring extensively in support of No Time Like Now.

As promised Blackie and The Rodeo Kings are set to deliver the companion piece to their 2011 collaboration album King And Queens. Where that album featured guest appearances from some of the band’s favourite female singers, Kings And Kings features some of the band’s best ‘guy’ friends from the world of roots, blues, and country. Each one of them an accomplished ‘king’ in their realm of creative endeavors and in many cases absolute ‘king’ legends in the entertainment industry.
“Some of these were fellows we knew well and had made lots of music with like Bruce Cockburn, Buddy Miller, and Keb Mo, and some were new heroes and discoveries like Fantastic Negrito and Dallas Green,” saysColin Linden. “Some, were icons who I had shared some guitaring with like Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell, Eric Church, and Raul Malo. And some were icons new and preloved who joined us out of kindness I suppose, like Nick Lowe and Jason Isbell. And some were my dear pals I work on the Nashville TV show with; Chris Carmack, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, and Sam Palladio.”
Set for release October 7 via File Under: Music, the first single “Beautiful Scars” reminds us of Tom Wilson’s Lee Harvey Osmond album Beautiful Scars. Wilson jokes that he wrote the title track of his album after it’s release. The song itself is inspired by novelist Miriam Toews benefits from an amazing vocal performance by Dallas Green (City And Colour

SATURDAY  SECRET KILLS with MONKLEY CASCADE

Image may contain: text

Secret Kills & Monkley Cascade, invite you to a night of celebration and music at This Ain’t Hollywood.
This occasion has been at the forefront of my mind the past couple of years.

I was diagnosed with a form of blood cancer in the beginning of 2015 and had to undergo a ludicrous spine surgery shortly before starting Chemo.
Needless to say, the potential of this night, particular location, and bands playing, were some of the thoughts which kept me sane and strong. My closest friends were by my side, my bandmates, and the thought of this moment we clung to, waiting for that time, all the pieces would fall together. Here we are!

Now only weeks away, I find my hands shaky as I consider the words for this description, which have been floating around in my mind for quite some time.
We are so grateful to our dear friends in Monkley Cascade to be sharing the night with us. We go way back to the days of Lakeriser (RIP) and Little Silver Tabby (RIP) and it’s remarkable to think that we will be back at it, all these years later, for at LEAST one more run around the stage!

This night is all about friendship, music, and getting through the darkest of times, and reflecting on how they look in the rearviewmirror; overcoming and conquering all of the scary shit that’s happened, is happening and getting through it all, together.

I, we, can’t wait to see all of you, and spend the night cheersin’, dancin’, groovin’, drinkin’, reminiscin’ and whatever else-in’

See you on the 25th!
