When Taína Asili took a cathartic sledgehammer to a TV playing news clips in the video for her protest anthem “No Es Mi Presidente” (Not My President) people took notice. But Taína wasn’t satisfied: “The video featured important activists from my community, but no one heard their stories.” Taína makes sure those stories will be heard on Resiliencia, her third album (release: April 19, 2019).
Having spent almost a decade in the wilderness, Singer / Songwriter Alf Hale had a spectacular return to the music scene with his EP 'Misanthrope' which chronicled his remarkable journey from the depths of alcoholism to his eventual redemption.
This was swiftly followed up by his debut album 'City on a Hill' which saw Alf, accompanied by fiddle player Jade Morris, channel the dark underbelly of Southern American Country, Folk and Blues infused with his unmistakable English charm.
Edward and Jane, purveyors of anthemic folk-infused pop, have released a new single, "Blue Ridge Goodbyes." "Haunting and cinematic, 'Blue Ridge Goodbyes'...will leave you breathless and intoxicated. The atmospheric piano and mournful vocals give this new track a dreamlike quality that shows the band heading in a new, exciting direction," says EARMILK in its premiere of the track.
Forever Overhead, the debut album from singer-songwriter Tim Baker, features eleven songs that centre on kinship. His buoyant first single "Dance" was about a longing for connection and feeling close to, but ultimately separated from, love. "All Hands," his joyous indie-folk single, again explores connections, but is less of a lament than a thank you letter, dedicated to the people who have helped Baker throughout his career, and part nostalgic anthem about his Newfoundland home.
