Heavy Graces Play

"Heavy Graces" is a new song set from Allison Crowe - and with this collection she's writing, singing, playing piano, guitar, doing percussion, engineering and production, album art, photography -- and, for the first-time ever, adding fiddle to her palette!

"Heavy Graces", an album which includes new songs from the pen and soul of Allison Crowe, alongside her interpretations of tunes composed by Leonard Cohen and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder.

Allison Crowe enjoys working with today's film directors -- this year, Tom Anton on "The Pardon", and Zack Snyder for "Man of Steel" -- and their amazing production teams. Via online videos, there's now opportunity for artistry and fun to combine music and movies from an earlier era.

Songs in this collection from the Canadian artist are accompanied visually by a series of excerpts from silent and classic b/w films from directors D.W. Griffith, Josef von Sternberg, Buster Keaton and Clyde Bruckman.

Newfoundland Vinyl Play

Here's the music from Allison Crowe's "Newfoundland Vinyl" LP, the 11th release on Rubenesque Records Ltd.

As Musical Director for TNL's production of "Newfoundland Vinyl: The Flip Side" at the Gros Morne Theatre Festival, the Canadian musician, born in Nanaimo, BC, on the Pacific, is active now in her Atlantic setting, curating and arranging songs for this Summer's GMTF cast.

It's a rich and varied collection harvested from the island region's popular music and oral traditions. The album's 10 tracks traverse parlour songs to country tunes and folk favourites, songs of land and sea that share the strength and the struggles, the joys, heartbreaks and the humour of people.

As well as being a premiere songwriter, musician and performer of original material, Crowe's recognized as one of the great modern interpreters of song - via her internationally-acclaimed and much-loved versions of songs by Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, The Beatles, and plenty more greats - Allison Crowe's singular performances deliver familiar and much-loved songs afresh and with renewed joy.

Crowe's just returned to her home in Corner Brook, NL, after attending the World Premiere in New York City of "Man of Steel", the Zack Snyder-directed Superman epic in which she has a cameo - as a musician performing "Ring of Fire", a song made famous by Johnny Cash. MoS is currently the #1 box office draw on planet Earth. (Had things not gone so wrong on Krypton, it'd surely be a smashing success there as well.) Next she rolls on to Cow Head, in Gros Morne National Park -- and says:

"I am so grateful to have been asked by Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador, two years in a row, to put together songs and musically direct for a show called 'Newfoundland Vinyl'. As part of the Gros Morne Theatre Festival, I get to work with extremely talented and fun people each Summer in a gorgeous setting - Cow Head, NL. From the vast and encyclopaedic sea of beautiful music to come from, and out of, Newfoundland and Labrador, here is a collection of some of the songs from this year's show."
