Great Lake Swimmers

Great Lake Swimmers

2018 marks the 15th anniversary of Great Lake Swimmers. The JUNO nominated, Polaris Prize shortlisted Toronto group, fronted by lead singer-songwriter Tony Dekkerare pleased to announce new album The Waves, The Wake, releasing August 17, 2018 via Nettwerk. Recorded in the 145 year old Bishop Cronyn Memorial Church and produced by Chris Stringer (Union Sound),Tony decided to challenge himself by writing new music without any acoustic guitar which has always been his instrumental mainstay. He further digressed from previous songwriting patterns by looking at each track individually and then tailoring the instrumentation to bring each song to life in its own distinctive way. The new record is preceded by a six track EP titled Side Effects, that features new songs “The Talking Wind”, “Falling Apart” and “Side Effects” as well as fan favourites “Your Rocky Spine”, “Quiet Your Mind” and “I Became Awake”.

Sister Ray

She is heading from here to anywhere. The car smells like gas station coffee left to burn, and runs fast enough down the highway it’s like she was never there. From Edmonton Alberta, Sister Ray was born on the road; a brain child. With roots planted in the realm of traditional folk and bluegrass, ears began to wander into the worlds of post rock and dream pop.

In January of 2017 Sister Ray recorded her debut album, Untitled to a small live audience. The songs are composed as immediate redemption, a voice of longing; a conversation. Music improvised to the air of a space created by all in the room, space made with dark reverb and lingering, failing delay. No show is the same show, she will never hear the same song again, or remember the words from times passed.
