Acclaimed Canadian singer, songwriter and rock 'n roll bandleader Fred Eaglesmith is a genuine iconoclast, old-time showman, and true original with nineteen albums to his name. He has doggedly gone his own way as an independent artist, becoming almost a cult figure as a result. His greatest reward is the thousands of devoted fans across North America who flock to his thrilling live shows and have built festivals to showcase his concerts. But he has also been rewarded by the music industry itself, including a Juno Award, song placement in films by Martin Scorsese, a #1 hit on the bluegrass charts, wowing David Letterman, and finding his songs included in the curriculum at two colleges.
Tif Ginn is a gutsy, amazing singer and transcendent songwriter who has spent her adult life on concert tours, first as half of the Fabulous Ginn Sisters, releasing 3 critically acclaimed albums, and then as part of the Fred Eaglesmith Traveling Show. Her gritty, heartbreaking songs, co-written with Eaglesmith, are of single moms, lovesick fools, and trailer park life. Tif's sultry, smoky, honest and emotional style perfectly suits the subject matter. Stylistically, she dabbles in jazzy country and angry punk, embracing pop, Americana and folk along the way. It all comes out fearless and enormously listenable.
