“When Jordan Klassen set out to write his sixth full-length record, Glossolalia, he tapped into a new creative well. In the midst of recording the record, he found himself continuing to write, coming away from the process with two distinct yet complementary bodies of work. Marginalia now rounds out the collection from this period. The Vancouver based singer-songwriter and producer composed Glossolalia mostly with guitar, creating a subtly blossoming record that perhaps nailed his “fairy folk for troubled times” approach better than ever before. While troubles are not a thing of the past, times are now different, and thus, Marginalia is the other side of the musical coin. It is smoother, fuller, and more elegant than its predecessor.
Marginalia is about the edges of life, away from what is in the mainstream. Technically it is a writer’s term; where we make notes and write insights in the margins of a page. There may be footnotes or annotations, doodles and drawings, but the marginalia allows us to see things with a new understanding, and to make connections that may have gone unnoticed. Marginalia often comes from a stream of consciousness, where we uncover things that aren’t in the direct line of sight. They are what we see by the light of the moon rather than in direct sunlight; inspirations that may have come from the same place in our minds, but with a contrasting feel to them, like a photo negative. Marginalia is available October 20, 2023.”
“With two albums, three EPs, and numerous singles to date, Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Zaac Pick’s has spent his time quietly earning acclaim for over a decade. A nominee for Single of The Year at this year’s Canadian Folk Music Awards, and for a West Coast Music Award for ‘Best Roots Album’ in 2011, Pick as been steadily refining his brand of confessional folk as his reflective and raw songs have received generous CBC and college radio support, numerous features on major network television shows, and helped land him opening slots for the likes of The Civil Wars, Noah Gundersen, and Bahamas.”
“Cassidy Waring is a Vancouver-based artist who has spun her relatable challenges into dreamy Indie folk tunes that invite listeners deep inside with uncompromising honesty, a razor-sharp wit, and vivid remembrance. Cassidy’s vulnerability on stage is an integral part of her live performance. She is a Complex-PTSD survivor and mental health advocate who speaks candidly about her personal experiences with trauma, grief, relationships, and therapy, reminding us that we aren’t alone in our struggles.
Cassidy worked with producer Jonathan Anderson on her debut album, “Lonesome Reunion”, released in November 2021. Her sophomore album will be released this year.”
“WIRTH is dedicated to reducing the stigma around mental health and counseling. It has always been WIRTH’s mission to remove barriers that prevent people from accessing counseling. Proceeds from events and every hat purchase goes towards the WIRTH Hats Counseling Fund, providing counseling for those unable to afford it. To date, WIRTH has sponsored 6500+ sessions of counseling.”
