When I interviewed Erin at the Haligonia studio a few weeks ago it was a straight interview so today I’m going to bring a video camera to the show and record her playing and singing.
I’m looking forward to bringing her music to you.
Hope you can make it down to the show.
Studio phone number is 455-3382 and my cell is 220-5115 if you have any questions. Otherwise…just show up.
And I’ll post all the details of the show afterwards of course.
A beautiful day in downtown Halifax with beautiful music…what could be better?
This is Erin’s current bio in case you are wondering what to expect:
Erin Costelo blends rich, layered piano driven compositions with lyrics as often searing as they are sweet on her first full length album, “Fire & Fuss”. Recorded at CBC’s Studio H, “Fire & Fuss” will take its place in a long line of remarkable debut albums from Halifax’s singer-songwriter community. Produced by Karl Falkenham with Executive Producer Glenn Meisner, Costelo has captured the strength and fragility of her distinctively low, smoky voice in moody, unique arrangements that blend barrelhouse blues, boogie woogie and 60s soul with her truthful melody driven ballads to create a sound that is all her own.
Joining Erin on her sophomore album are esteemed Halifax musicians Phil Sedore (guitar), Lukas Pearse (bass), Alex Porter (drums) and Benn Ross (percussion). The individual voices of these seasoned musicians can be heard throughout, bringing depth and weaving a musical narrative that guides the listener through the complexity of Costelo’s arrangements while never betraying the strength of her piano composition nor overshadowing her vocal proficiency.
