ALBUM RELEASE FOR MORGAN BERRIE’S NEW ALBUM “LINES”

About Morgan x Barrie: Morgan Barrie is a Canadian singer-songwriter whose sound seamlessly intertwines warm guitar riffs and thoughtful lyrics. Morgan finds a way of opening the channels to your soul, singing about challenges all generations collectively face in the 21st century. He’s raw, honest, and slightly haunting. Morgan’s songs encompass topics of love, waste, and loss in equally passionate terms.

As an artist, Morgan takes control over all elements of the production process. From composing his music to recording, engineering, arranging and mixing the final product in his personal studio. Leaving nothing to chance, his ambitious oversight delivers a unique, personal and powerful sound signature.

In the depths of the pandemic, Morgan buckled down to complete his third album, Lines. Lines is set to be released May 13th, 2022 at Heartwood Concert Hall. This newest album is truly a listening experience, an ambitious yet seamless concept album that takes listeners on an epic, heartfelt journey through the human struggle to make sense of their place in the world around them.

Barrie’s solid musicianship, composition and production is enhanced by a rich tapestry of collaboration woven throughout the album with contributions from an array of notable artists including Lisa Lobsinger, Kyle Crane, Mark Mariash, Aaron Goldstein, Tyler Beckett, Matt Epp, and Christina Martin.

Morgan continues to develop his abilities as an artist and a producer in his home studio in Owen Sound. Through his experience playing live and recording albums Barrie has learned how to connect with listeners and tell stories important to today’s complex environment.

After 20+ years together, JUNO-nominated singer-songwriting duo Madison Violet are as much wanderers as they are musicians. It is a career filled with endless roads stretching into the horizon, winding through changing landscapes, each kilometre traveled carrying with it the promise of inspiration.

Perhaps that is the secret of what has made Madison Violet such an enduring band. Because with each new town, each new venue, their curiosity grows, their love of music deepens, their desire to push musical boundaries expands.

It is believed that the spark that ignited Madison Violet’s irrepressible curiosity came from an unlikely source; while sitting in Brenley’s grandmother’s kitchen in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, filled to bursting with family, friends, instruments (and maybe even a foe or two), and miles from their adopted home of Toronto, Ontario, two musicians looked at each over the flickering light of the old wood stove and knew that theirs would be an unconventional journey.

Inspired by their heritage, emboldened by their vision, Lisa MacIsaac and Brenley MacEachern decided that they would create a sound that would have its roots in their past while continually exploring new sounds.

From the beginning, the multi-instrumentalists have carried authenticity with them like a talisman, writing all of their own music and lyrics, believing that the best way to connect to their audiences was to treat them like old friends sharing a secret and a smile. As vocalists they have an innate ability to break your heart, slyly knowing that their soaring harmonies will mend it, often all in the span of one song.

The shared belief in themselves and their fearlessness to follow their dreams did eventually pay off and accolades and awards soon became synonymous with Madison Violet; including a JUNO nomination, a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Vocal Group Album of the Year and a Critic’s Choice Award from Country Music People’s Magazine.

Their songs have been featured in the notorious music magazine Mojo’s Top 10 Playlist, and received a mass of acclaim from outlets such as the BBC, the CBC, Maverick Magazine and NPR, and have earned the duo the Grand Prize in the Maxell John Lennon Songwriting Contest (voted on by a panel of distinguished artists including Elton John, Tim McGraw, Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, John Legend, Enrique Iglesias and Mary J.Blige). Madison Violet were on Germany’s WDR’s list of Best Bands of All Time and with a bit of a departure from their rootsy sound, their single “These Ships” was released in 2014 on one of the largest dance labels in the U.S., Ultra Records, garnering over 1M plays on Spotify.

Madison Violet has nine studio albums to their credit including the new Christmas classic “Sleigh Bells in the Snow” featuring their friend and collaborator Ron Sexsmith, singing on Frosty the Snowman. In early 2019, Madison Violet released their latest album Everything’s Shifting, a heartfelt examination of how memory can splinter a heart, how loss shapes perspective and how sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you can’t have love without regret.

It is an album to be listened to on the open road, with the windows rolled down: a love letter to their fans, from two wanderers who continue to follow the melodies wherever they lead.

ABOUT ROB ELDER: Owen Sound’s Rob Elder caught the music bug as a kid on the family farm where classic country & western songs, the Beach Boys, and Bob Seeger were the sound track to barn chores. Back then, picking up a guitar was an easy way to wind down at the end of a long day.

Turned to music, his farm boy’s work ethic led to quick growth and an early creative blossoming, his festival debut at the age of 20, and the release of two self produced albums shortly afterwards.

Now with the release of ‘Changer’ 12 years after his sophomore record, Rob self-identifies as a re-emerging artist. But make no mistake, his musical growth has never faltered and his roots have only dug deeper in the intervening years.

ABOUT BEN KUNDER: Occupying a rare but accessible musical space between folk, pop, and Cali-style Americana, Toronto singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ben Kunder chronicles the ordinary and the extraordinary in luminous detail.

With three highly acclaimed studio albums (2019’s Searching For the Stranger, 2018’s Better Human, and 2015’s Golden) and multiple international tours and festival appearances achieved to date, Kunder has amassed a devoted following while establishing himself as a sought-after collaborator and electrifying live performer.

A committed social justice advocate, father to two young kiddos and compassionate member of the human race, Kunder consistently yields exquisite musical insights.

Evolving creatively is a key goal for any artist, especially for songwriters. Being able to tap into the vein of shared experiences by way of a personalized point of view is a gift the best songwriters are able to build upon from song to song and album to album. Only the best of them are able to transition from being a soother one minute to a soothsayer the next with relative ease, confidence, and expertise.  And that’s exactly what Toronto-based singer/songwriter Julian Taylor has done with the eight deeply intimate songs that comprise his striking new solo effort, The Ridge. We are honour to have Julian Taylor at Heartwood this fall!
