“Go On is a stunning achievement”
 – NOW Toronto

Go On is a demonstration of Crabtree’s unique ability to use classical and electronic elements to blur the lines of folk music and leave you breathless.” 8/10 – EXCLAIM!

“defies categorization. The most definite expectation you can have is of music that’s textured, beautiful, nearly magical.” CBC MUSIC

“Go On is sure to become one that refuses to collect dust on the shelf. – CANADIAN BEATS

“With the focus still on Crabtree’s haunting voice, [he] treads new paths. Full of stirring sounds, layered vocals and subtle string and brass arrangements.” ROLLING STONE

While the eponymous debut album was concerned with ends, Go On focuses on starting again; putting your head down and pushing forward. The songs alternately shimmer and float, while reserving the right to occasionally punch you in the gut for good measure.

Produced by Crabtree, Go On was set in motion in London, Ontario in 2013 with engineer Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes). Fleshed out in Nova Scotia, tracks were bounced around Montreal, New York, and even rural Lancashire, before the album was mixed by Graeme Campbell (Buck 65, Rich Aucoin).

CBC Music is premiering the new Paper Beat Scissors album in advance of the August 14th release and calls the album “textured, beautiful, nearly magical…a confident, stunning collection.”Listen here.About the new album – Go On

“With the focus still on Crabtree’s haunting voice, [he] treads new paths. Full of stirring sounds, layered vocals and subtle string and brass arrangements.” – ROLLING STONE

On Go On, the followup to his 2012 self-titled debut, Crabtree takes the helm as producer, adding more grandiose orchestral-pop flourishes and taking bigger chances with instruments, loops and start-stops, weaving his falsetto through the intricately built layers of each song. Longtime collaborators Gregory Burton, Michael Feuerstack and Pietro Amato contributed to the album, and its 10 tracks travelled around Nova Scotia, Montreal, New York and rural Lancashire during the recording process. Everything started in London, Ont., with engineer Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore) and ended out east, mixed by Graeme Campbell (Buck 65, Rich Aucoin, Aqua Alta).
