PEI’s Rachel Beck – along with Adyn Townes (formerly known as Andy Brown) – celebrate the release of her new, Daniel Ledwell-produced, self-titled debut album at The Carleton on Sunday, March 18th. Advanced tickets are $15 or you can pay $20 at the door.
Canadian songstress Rachel Beck comprises one half of PEI’s award-nominated duo The Beck Sisters. Rachel recently partnered with producer Daniel Ledwell (David Myles, Jenn Grant) to record her debut solo album, set for release in March, 2018. Glowing with catchy pop hooks, it lures the listener into an ethereal and enveloping soundscape, as the songs take one on trek across a wide emotional range – from regret and grief to wonder and joy. Beck’s rich, clear vocals gracefully dance above distinctive piano to create a fresh and compelling adult alternative/pop sound. And whether you see this Canadian singer-songwriter live, hear her on the radio, or press play on one of her songs, the experience is just as impactful: you are not only brought under her vocal spell, but are an instant fan.
At the place where endings become beginnings, you’ll find Adyn Townes. He turned a fall into the ocean and months of recovery into his jumping off point.
His music is challenging. Alternative indie-folk with raw and honest lyrics. Like finding your feet just before you fall, his songwriting is the gravity that pulls you back to earth.
Inspired by the equal-parts hard and smooth voice of David Gray and the clear electric guitar tones of James Bay, Townes is always pushing the boundaries and seeing how close he can get to the edge.
Currently working on a new album, produced by Colin Buchanan of Paper Lions, Townes (formerly Andy Brown) is focusing on building the foundation. Formulating floor plans and building from the ground up.
