Renowned singer and guitarist Colin James has announced his 2019 Canadian tour, in support of his 19th album release Miles To Go. Kicking off in Victoria, BC, on March 17th, Colin and his band will travel across the country, stopping in all major cities and concluding in Halifax, on April 19th.

Reflecting James’ recent work on Miles To Go, and it’s chart-topping predecessor, 2016’s Blue Highways, the tour will showcase his take on his best-loved blues numbers, as well as songs from his illustrious catalogue.

With Colin’s previous shows garnering outstanding acclaim, fans can look forward to equally terrific performances next Spring.

“… James hits it out of the park showing how you can bring home the gold consistently in a genre that most people marginalize. Killer stuff from a modern master.” Chris Spector – Midwest Record Entertainment

Tickets for the Miles To Go tour are on sale this coming Friday, September 28 at 9am.

This will be his first visit since his performance, which was the first concert at the newly opened Save On Foods Memorial Centre, some 13 years ago. He came out wearing a hard hat and safety vest as the arena was just being completed.

Rod Stewart is one of the best-selling artists in the history of recorded music, with an estimated 200 million records sold worldwide.

Great Lake Swimmers – “Still”

A Forest Of Arms is the sixth album from Tony Dekker’s Great Lake Swimmers and the follow up to 2012’s New Wild Everywhere. With a surging rhythm section, razor sharp violin, and flourishing banjo and guitars, Dekker and band mates have pushed their sound significantly, creating some of their most dynamic songs ever recorded.

Those familiar with the decade-long output of Great Lake Swimmers will recognize the thematic threads of beauty in the natural world, environmental issues and explorations of close personal ties that hold us together. The familiar versus the strange theme is also running through this record, both in the instrumentation and in the songwriting (“Zero In The City”, “I Was A Wayward Pastel Bay”).

As with past Great Lake Swimmers albums, A Forest Of Arms was recorded in several locations over the span of several months, covering extensive new territory while remaining true to the group’s refined sound. One of the unique and unusual locations was Tyendinaga Cavern and Caves in Tyendinaga, Ontario, where a number of the vocal and acoustic guitar tracks, including the main parts for “Don’t Leave Me Hanging,” “The Great Bear” and “With Every Departure,” were recorded amid haunting acoustics, stalactites, and circling bats.

The violins were recorded at the Heliconian Club of Toronto, while the bass and drum tracks were largely recorded at the Chalet Studio just outside of Toronto, a unique chalet-style recording space located on 40 acres of rolling hills and trails, in proximity to the shores of Lake Ontario. The pastoral and elemental nature of these spaces surfaces throughout the album.

The title, A Forest Of Arms, is taken from album track “The Great Bear,” a song inspired by a trip Dekker took to the northern rainforests of British Columbia in September 2013 with the World Wildlife Fund. It’s a pristine wilderness area that is under threat of being compromised by the construction of a pipeline, and Dekker and the group have been very vocal in their opposition to it. In a broader sense, the title is also a reference to the sense of community surrounding the Toronto-based band, as well as the band’s own growing families, exhibited in the songs “Something Like A Storm” and “Expecting You.”
