We are thrilled to announce that Jennah Barry is joining our team. You’ll be hearing new music from her very soon but until then, if you aren’t familiar, check our her earlier stuff and you’ll begin to understand why she’s so special. She’s also curated a Spotify playlist below that she describes as “music for when there’s a baby in the room.”

Hailing from the coastal haven of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, Jennah Barry is one of Atlantic Canada’s surest sirens. Her undeniable, rosewater voice sets a mood wherein even the hardest truths seem palatable. Moving effortlessly between folk, country and soft rock motifs, Barry’s music, last heard on her instantly classic debut Young Men, sets her at the forefront of a tradition of women making music as strong as it is sentimental.


Roller Disco
, the first piece of new music from Barry is over six years, was produced and recorded by Colin Nealis (Andy ShaufAidan Knight) and will arrive on November 23rd.

Crossworlds, the fourth record from Toronto producer/percussionist Joshua Van Tassel, is a novella and concept album featuring nine pieces written to accompany the tale of an elder woman who is left to defend her small island from a force not of this world.

“expertly arranged with a theatrical sensibility that makes you feel completely enveloped.”

Each piece was carefully scored to a classic Maritime sea monster tale with a science fiction twist; released as a hardcover book with illustrations by Geordan Moore (Quarrelsome Yeti) and writing byJordan Crute & Van Tassel. Combining underwater field recordings from Newfoundland, new instruments created at the National Music Centre, orchestral strings, and some of the country’s best session musicians, Crossworlds is an entirely unique and compelling accomplishment.
