Roxanne Potvin releases new Christmas song “Beyond The Tinsel”

Roxanne Potvin-Beyond The Tinsel ART

Roxanne Potvin is celebrating the season with a new, original song entitled “Beyond The Tinsel.” It’s available now at https://roxannepotvin.bandcamp.com/track/beyond-the-tinsel, with the first 200 downloads free!

“I wrote the song last year thinking of a friend who was spending Christmas alone and I was reminded of all the people out there who were in the same situation,” Potvin says. “It’s so sad to me because I see Christmas as such a joyful time. So I wanted to let them know that they weren’t forgotten, that we were thinking of them. And if we’re fortunate enough to have family and love in our lives, maybe we should try to reach out to those who don’t.”

The soulful singer/songwriter and guitarist currently based in Gatineau, Quebec is also finishing up a new EP scheduled for release in early 2018. It will follow-up Potvin’s critically acclaimed 2016 album For Dreaming, her first self-produced and self-released project.

Premiere: Dave Allen – “Plainview”

There’s a timeless beauty to the black and white video for “Plainview,” the opening track of Dave Allen’s debut When The Demons Come.

Filmed at St. Luke’s Anglican Church in Creemore, Ontario – the same church that Allen recorded some of his record – and co-created with Dave Murray of Half Acre Films, the video for “Plainview” features multiple Allens (think Orphan Black but less distressing) playing all of the needed instruments and he is even the lone audience member. Is Allen a clone? He explains the concept behind the video:

It was really a great learning experience for me to see the great attention to detail, planning and organization that has to go into set arrangement, timing, filming and editing of video. Dave [Murray] is really great at all these things. I always thought it’d be an interesting and quirky film experiment to try and perform live a song, but…

New Video From Dave Allen: “Though I Hardly Knew You (I’d Still Call Out Your Name)”

Dave Allen-When The Demons Come ART

I’m very excited to be working with singer/songwriter Dave Allen (formerly of Stonetrotter) on his debut solo album, When The Demons Come [get it HERE].

It’s a powerful statement, which he made essentially on his own, and recommended for any fan of Jeff Tweedy, Bill Withers, Harry Nilsson, etc. Get a taste with this live solo performance of “Though I Hardly Knew You (I’d Still Call Out Your Name).”

There’ll be much more to come.
