They Promised You Mercy
Via such earlier albums as Hunter, Hunter and 2012's excellent Spectators, Juno-winning singer/songwriter Amelia Curran has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of our most eloquent songwriters. She also possesses a pure and resonant voice, and all these qualities are again in evidence on her brilliant new album, They Promised You Mercy. Produced by Michael Phillip Wojewoda (Barenaked Ladies, Rheostatics) at elite T.O. studio Revolution Recording, it features such stellar players as Josh Van Tassel, Dean Drouilliard, Aaron Davis, Christine Bougie and a horn section that adds sonic richness. We expect more awards attention for this one.
An eastern tour begins in St. John's on Nov. 8, followed by shows in Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Charlottetown. Check her site for full details.
