Joe Nolan and Stephen Fearing earn 2021 Canadian Folk Music Award nominations!

Big congrats to Joe Nolan and Stephen Fearing for earning nominations in the Contemporary Album of the Year category for the 2021 Canadian Folk Music Awards!

With Drifters, Edmonton, Alberta singer/songwriter Joe Nolan continued a remarkable creative run over the past two years, getting down to the bone with a 10-track predominantly acoustic collection, his first to be released in partnership with Canadian roots music label Fallen Tree Records.

Like other artists who are loosely categorized as ‘folk’ and ‘Americana’, Stephen Fearing questioned what those terms really mean on The Unconquerable Past, an album that can be seen as embracing and transcending the labels and genres simultaneously. Above all, on The Unconquerable Past, Fearing stepped out once again with a fresh perspective and a new batch of songs and stories drawing deeply from over thirty years of writing and playing across Canada and around the world.

#NewMusicFriday: Joe Nolan – Drifters

Joe Nolan-Drifters [2020] COVER

“In the midst of the cacophony of noise that constantly fills modern life, Nolan’s turn toward simple arrangement and minimal accompaniment [on Drifters] offers welcomed respite. Over ten tracks Nolan mines the trials, travesties, and triumphs of life’s journey; deep in that mine Nolan strikes a vein of sequestered gold.” Americana Highways
