ABOUT BEN KUNDER & “BETTER HUMAN” |
“Better Human” is Ben Kunder’s dazzling new album and confident follow-up to his 2015’s internationally acclaimed album “Golden”. This 9 song collection fearlessly explores themes like the birth of a child, the struggle for life balance and the workday reality propping up our outward facade to name a few. Teaming up with engineer/producer Aaron Goldstein at Baldwin Street Sound last fall, “Better Human” is host to several esteemed players – bassist Anna Ruddick (Randy Bachman, Bry Webb, Ben Caplan), Arkells drummer Tim Oxford, keyboardist Anthony Carone, violinist Drew Jurecka, and drummer Loel Campbell (Wintersleep), among others. With vocal assists from luminaries Oh Susanna, Jim Guthrie, Carleigh Aikins (Paper Bird/Bahamas), Sarah MacDougall and Maïa Davies, this stellar new album will now dominate the balance of Kunder’s 2018 via tour dates across Canada, Europe, and beyond. We hope to see you out on the road to celebrate this new album and it’s release into the world!
JESS MORGAN |
Jess Morgan is a songwriter’s songwriter. Her latest album is a tumbler of unfancied, gutsy song. Her melodies will ring in your ears for days and her stories will play on your heart long after that. The album comes out with Drabant Music and Jess is currently the Norwegian label’s only British artist. April 2017 saw the release of album Edison Gloriette, a record about love and lonliness – made for anyone who’s ever been a bit of a nighthawk at any one time or another. BBC Wales linchpin Adam Walton said on first play – “it’s a blinder.” Glasgow’s The Skinny called her, “a songwriter who lives her craft truer than many of her contemporaries.”
Jess will release new material in 2018 and will support A-ha! on their MTV Unplugged tour including dates at Spektrum in Oslo and the O2 Arena in London – the biggest shows to date for this meticulously hands-on artist artist, who makes her own playable 7″ records at home in her kitchen. The 405 called her “a true DIY artist in her element. Seriously, she does it all.”
