During his June tour through the USA & Canada, Michael Feuerstack made a stop outside of Chicago to record a solo session with the good people at Daytrotter in Rock Island, Illinois.

In case you are unfamiliar, Daytrotter is a website that hosts live sessions of artists performing their songs in a stripped-down studio environment. Since their beginnings in 2006, they have hosted over 2000 sessions and have over 21 million song streams/downloads. With 25 new acts per week, each with a trademark illustration by Johnnie Cluney, Daytrotter has become an influential tastemaker for indie/roots music around the world.

Listen to two tracks on Daytrotter.com or join up to download the full session plus much, much more.

Michael Feuerstack will be performing select dates this fall on the continued success of his latest album, The Forgettable Truth.

After more than seven months without shows, The Olympic Symphonium have announced a run of intimate performances around the Maritimes in early October.

The Fredericton folk quartet will travel around PEI and New Brunswick for a series of four acoustic concerts in small venues and houses. These shows will be an opportunity to reflect on their four celebrated albums while premiering new songs and digging through their back catalogue.

While the band recently has been contributing material to various compilations (Reagan’s Rayguns, Bonnie “Prince” Billy), they are making plans for a new record which will likely be recorded in winter, as seems to be their mandate.

Capacity at these venues is extremely limited so if you are interested in attending, reserve your tickets by emailing us – info@forwardmusicgroup.com – with the date/city you’d like to attend.

October 1 – Charlottetown, PEI: Marc’s Lounge
October 2 – St. Andrews, NB: House Show // email for details/tickets
October 3 – Fredericton, NB: House Show // email for details/tickets
October 4Saint John, NB: Bourbon Quarter (matinee)
