After 10 songs, almost 900 original emails, (not including replies) 13 months and 17 days, we’re happy to announce that our debut self titled release “Trent Severn” comes out today, November 6th 2012.
If you had a chance to listen to the album preview on CBC.ca this past week, we hope it is apparent that we spent time researching the material for our songwriting, working out our parts and performing them as best we could. Well we’re happy to say that just as much thought was put into our physical packaging too.
The hard copy of the CD is a three panel digipack with a 24 page booklet and a post card. Each song in the booklet features a hand rendered title, a custom postage stamp design, all of our lyrics and a short story about the inspiration for the song. The photos for the stamps were sourced online from across Canada and generously donated by their photographers who are credited in the liner notes. The album cover, a photo by Jenni Roberts, was even found on instagram.
The post card you’ll find inside is address to us. We’re hoping that the Canadiana inspired stories of our songs make you want to share your stories, well known or not. We’ll be looking forward to receiving your post cards and writing you back.
Have a fantastic November 6th everyone – thanks for listening.
