about

On a particularly long drive on a western Canadian tour, talk turned to how bands used to record live-off-the floor with no overdubs. That no safety net approach brought an immediacy to the recordings. “We spent one day, from noon to 1am, recording these songs,” says vocalist/violinist Amanda Balsys. “We really wanted to put out something that reflected the feel of the live band with its new members.” Along with bassist Wes McClintock, drummer Sean Lancaric and vocalist/guitarist Will Whitwham, they went into Revolution studios in the Leslieville area of Toronto and recorded five songs including three songs written by Whitwham, Yellow Yard by Balsys and a John Martyn song called Head and Heart.
