Selkirk Range will be performing a CD release show in Edmonton at Cafe Blackbird on April 6.
Yes, I know, it’s been a few months since we released the album but we decided to wait until Spring to celebrate it.
Join us for family-friendly show at a wonderful venue that supports local music in Edmonton.
The holidays can be a difficult time for those away from home. Here’s a new single from the album that conveys the loneliness of Christmas amidst the stark beauty of a northern Canadian winter. Dedicated to all those who will be away from their families this year.
We’re thrilled to release the first single off the album. Yellowhead West — a song for that other great Canadian highway stretching across the prairies and into the mountains– was a finalist and received special mention in the Jameson Upstart category at the 2016 Ship & Anchor song contest in Calgary and I’m pleased to be able to share it with you.
Become a fan of Selkirk Range at Reverbnation before November 22 and help build the buzz. I’ll send you a link to the pre-release digital download copy of the album.
Here’s a peek at the artwork for the forthcoming album. The painting is titled “Rasht” by Ottawa-based artist Taymaz Valley. He has very kindly given me permission to use this piece for the record, and I would like to thank Renee La Roi for her assistance in pulling all the design elements together for the CD packaging and online graphics.
I was drawn to the organic feel of the painting and brilliant use of colour. The river, tree, and house all speak to elements and themes within the songs on the album. That combination was simply irresistible to me. I hope you like it as much as I do!
Stay tuned for a special announcement later this week about the release date for the album and a special pre-release offer for fans of Selkirk Range.
Final mixes are done and we are sending the tracks to be mastered at Golden Mastering in California in the coming week.
From there, we will send master tracks for replication on a small run of CDs, as well as uploading to CD Baby for distribution to various online retailers, including iTunes.
It will be a soft launch of the record in November, meaning that I will release some or all of the album but plan for a more formal release event in the coming months.
Everett’s been wonderful to work with throughout this process, and I’m very pleased with the results so far; and especially for the opportunity to work with some talented musicians who performed on the record.
Stay tuned for more soon.
