Colleen (along with her constant companion/partner/accompanist Elijah Abrams) was a late, surprise addition to the “On a Western Swing” Tour, featuring Luther Wright & Rueben de Groot, which we were lucky enough to host at The Saloon in November of 2016. After that, Rueben & Colleen played a stellar show at The West End Cultural Centre on the way home. You may have caught Colleen at the 2017 Interstellar Rodeo backing up Sarah Slean or doing her own interlude set. If you’ve seen her, surely you adore her.
If you haven’t had the pleasure, GET ON IT NOW! 2018 is poised to be a BIG year. Later this year, Colleen and Eli will release an eagerly anticipated album under the name Major Love, which is a band made up of hot indie pop/rock trio Scenic Route to Alaska, up-and-coming singer/songwriter Jesse Northey of Jesse & The Dandelions, and in-demand pedal steel mater/producer Aaron Goldstein. There’s some MAJOR attention circling Major Love, with a major release and a major tour later this year.
At this intimate duo show, we’ll surely hear a bunch of songs off of that record, as well as songs from Colleen’s previous releases, which include 4 full length albums and 2 EPs, including last year’s stellar Seasons are Circling, which included one of the most gorgeous songs of the year, I Can’t Wrap My Heart Around It.
Maybe you remember Colleen’s big breakthrough single, Love You Baby, which still gets a lot of play on CBC Radio and other outlets.
If you’re lucky, your life has been blessed by this song already!:
Let’s not forget about Elijah Abrams! Besides being an in-demand multi-instrumentalist, known for backing up Colleen, Oh Susanna, Rocket Surgery, and many others, Eli grew up on stage alongside his cousins The Abrams Brothers. Together, they toured the world, were the youngest Canadians to ever play The Grand Ol’ Opry, and won a bunch of awards. The guy’s no slouch.
Please join us for what’s sure to be a wonderful night of music! Your support helps keep musicians on the road and events like these happening!
