This Storm
Tara MacLean & Catherine MacLellan - s/t Canadian New

There is nothing harder than being separated from the people you love. Whether by distance or death, the human heart is no stranger to grief. Grief has been described as “Love with nowhere to go”. THIS STORM is an antidote to grief, releasing of love and expressing a trust in the deep wisdom that this too shall pass. All we need to do is hold on.

Written and recorded by Tara MacLean and Catherine MacLellan while in self-isolation - miles apart - and with friends Natalie Williams-Calhoun (cello) and Mark Westberg (mixing/mastering).

This video is a big, warm hug from Tara, Catherine and all of PEI to the rest of the world.

Signs of Hostility
Bet Smith & The Currie Brothers - s/t Canadian New

Released Apr. 13, 2020

"An Earth Month Special!

Full disclosure: This is us. We're in the middle of a pandemic and can't exactly have bands coming in to record, but there is suddenly time to complete projects that have been sitting on the backburner for months. So in the spirit of having a few new videos to kick off this project, we thought we'd share Signs of Hostility. In the spirit of Earth Month, this is a song about climate change and resilience. It nods to self-sufficiency, gardening and traditional skills.

Hear more from Bet Smith & The Currie Brothers at

Bet Smith: Vocals, acoustic guitar, songwriter
Sarah Girdwood: Harmony vocals, maracas
Rob Currie: Electric guitar, sound recording
Andrew Currie: Drum, bass, organ pedals."
Fifteen Shades
Christina Hutt - - Pine Lake Music Canadian New

"Christina’s rich, deep voice is unlike anything we’ve come across. Once described as a full-bodied glass of red wine, it is reminiscent of the succulent vocals you would have heard flowing from a transistor radio in the late 1950s.

Christina’s new single, Fifteen Shades taps into her unique vocal quality and delivers a listening experience that brings us back to another era."
