While we take a break in-between our just-ended Canadian tour and our upcoming tour of New England, we’d like to introduce you to some new music. Some of you might already be familiar with Ivy Mairi’s work, if not; we think you’ll like what she is up to. Ivy’s first album, Well You, was one of the first releases on our revamped Latent Recordings label. This past year Ivy released her second album, No Talker, on Latent. Both albums were produced and recorded by Michael Timmins. No Talker has been garnering some much deserved praise (see below) and if you are curious you can get a free download from the album by going to Ivy’s website or visiting her Facebook page. Also, through Ivy’s website, you can buy both albums for only $5.99. We think that Ivy will be a much appreciated addition to your summer playlist….enjoy.
Recent reviews for No Talker:
“One of Canada’s hidden musical treasures is Toronto’s Ivy Mairi” – the Broken Speaker
“a singular voice and vision, that shines brightly through this humble collection of mostly slow-paced, deep and serious songs” – Berkely Music
“Ivy presents a different voice in the world of music” – Baby Sue
Good to see Ivy get some attention. I can second Mike’s recommendation – it’s a wonderful CD and she’s great fun to watch and listen to live. If you haven’t heard her, take Mike’s advice and check out her disc.
