There’s a Rising Tide on the horizon and it’s the emotional epicentre of Toronto-based Americana singer and songwriter Taivi’s refreshing new album. Thirteen songs deep and recorded in North America and Frankfurt, Germany, the Rising Tide sessions were mentored by Grammy-nominated internationally renowned bluegrass star Claire Lynch, whose incredible band served as support on the album, along with a few other notable musicians.
Engineered by Nicolas Tjelios (Basia Bulat, Jenny Whiteley, Ken Whiteley,) the intriguing and topical self-penned songs reflect “life and connections,” Taivi says, ranging from taking stock (“Red Moon Rise”) and ecology (“The Clearwater”) to romance (“When I’m With You, a duet with Nova Scotian Ryan Roberts) and rumination (“One More Dance.”)
“I feel lucky to have a body of work like Rising Tide out there,” says Taivi. “From the inspiration for the songs through the production, it has drawn from- and brought together- beautiful influences in my life. It’s a continuing journey – and I’m looking forward to where the next step is going to take me.”
Keep an eye peeled for Taivi as she appears in Southern Ontario, the U.S. and eventually Germany to performing Rising Tide, a fresh wave of excellent music that will leave you pining for more.
