Allison Crowe Band Tidings

12 songs
On winter's eve in Canada, Allison Crowe took her seat at the piano and made this music. Tidings unites traditional carols and not-so-traditional songs, all warmly and passionately interpreted through artistry of Allison (and, on three tracks, her trio) in a live, studio, setting. The sounds of this session have been captured faithfully by Engineer & Producer Larry Anschell (Pearl Jam, Sarah McLachlan, k-os) Peace on Earth ~ goodwill toward all. Tidings!

NB This is the full-length, 12 song version of Tidings (which was previously released as a six-song EP).

Brian Hazelbower One In A Million

'Merry Christmas Momma' for $2.99

Late in 2002 Brian decided it was time to finish something he had started some years earlier. Using some of his own works and some that were co-written with band mates Dave Studer and Ron Keck, he headed into Raincoast Studio. He was looking to for a Nashville meets Vancouver Island sound and by all accounts thus far, has succeeded.

Some of what people are saying:

 

“A KICKASS CD”,

 

One in a Million –“ I really enjoyed it, very professionally done, good job.”

 

“Bartender…totally… Rocks” ” I really like the way your band performs this. It's got a lot of variety, very well written ”

 

“This is fantastic, awesomely done, totally country, loved it. A thumbs up from me, oh and perfect country vocals”

You Gotta Love - “Very catchy and yet pulls at your heartstrings at the same time”

 “Softly Burning is beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes and really touched my heart...

When a song does that, to me it's a great song”

“Wow! I really like this. The story, the lyrics, the melodies, the arrangement, as well as the thought as the song ends. This is something that people will hear and think about when they listen.

Great piece of artistry.”

A CHRISTMAS DREAM CD PROJECT
FOR B.C. FOOD BANKS
A Christmas Dream CD is a unique collaboration featuring 11 original and traditional Christmas songs from legendary Canadian musicians Valdy and Gary Fjellgaard, B.C. singer/songwriters Nathan Tinkham and Saskia Munroe and songwriter Darrel Delaronde. Created to raise money for B.C. food banks, the recording presents a musical feast that is destined to become a Christmas classic.
Inspired by the annual Huron Carol tour, this project was born when Saskia Munroe contacted her favorite B.C. musicians and asked if they had any original Christmas songs to contribute to a fundraising CD for B.C. foodbanks. The response was immediate and enthusiastic and the recording quickly turned into a collaboration with Valdy, Fjellgaard and Munroe providing harmonies to each other’s songs and Tinkham adding his award-winning guitar throughout. From Valdy’s jazzy Secret Santa to Fjellgaard and Munroe’s moving version of I Saw Three Ships, this CD is a seamless blend of original and traditional songs. All the musicians have donated 100% of their talent and time to create this CD.

The enthusiasm of the musicians is matched by the support of the small southeastern B.C. town of Revelstoke where Munroe and her co-executive producer, Krista Stovel, are based. From garage sales to fundraising concerts all of the monies raised has come from local individuals, businesses, service clubs and foundations. The beautiful painting on the CD cover was created by local artist David S. Walker and the Revelstoke Arts Council is sponsoring the project. Through Revelstoke’s community spirit the producers were able to raise all the money needed to produce and manufacture the CD so that 100% of the profits will go to the food banks where the CDs are sold. ($18 to food banks and $2 to go back into remanufacturing.)

In November 2002, there will be concerts in Revelstoke and Invermere to raise money for local food banks through concert proceeds and CD sales. A tour reaching more communities will take place next year. The goal for A Christmas Dream is to raise funds and awareness of the important role the food banks play in each community and create a recording that will generate income for B.C. food banks long past it’s release in 2002.

Irish Rovers
An Irish Christmas

Release Date: 15 October, 2002
Varese Records 
This has quickly become one of my family's favorite Christmas albums because it is lively, upbeat, and melodious. The Rovers have a great beat and rollicking voices and they do a terrific job with both the fun songs and the traditional carols. I particularly like Bells Over Belfast for its hopeful message in the current depressing situation with the Peace Agreement but it is also nice to hear upbeat renditions of God Rest Ye Merry, Away In A Manger, We Three Kings, and Silent Night along with less-often-heard All Through The Night, The Christmas Traveller, and What Child Is This. And last, but not least, is Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake, which is a cute addition to the Christmas repertoire. All in all, this CD will leave you feeling good and full of Christmas spirit.
