Chris Andrews & Mark Hiscock - Newfoundland
Newfoundland

Chris Andrews & Mark Hiscock began as a duo performing to the accolades of many on board the tour schooner the Scademia.

This CD shows us their beginnings.

Selections on the CD include: Newfoundland ᠆eed Of Duff 䨥 Diamond 㨯res Of America 䨥 Old Polina ᦴer Hours At ErinՠMikeyӯng 쯯king Back 钳e Da Bye 㥶en Deadly Sins 䨥 Irish Miner ⥩d Ril Againn.

Rik Barron - Shine
Rik Rabbon

This, folks, is as close as yer gonna get to a Waylon Jennings kids' album. Newfoundland folk and roots music veteran Rik Barron uses his considerable talents to create Shine, a wonderfully rustic album for children. Barron's quavering baritone is very reminiscent of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, and his quiet, almost conversational delivery fits his material perfectly.

Barron's choice of cover songs adds to Shine's quality: Butch Hancock's "My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own," Iris DeMent's "Let the Mystery Be," Duncan Wells' "Shine," the Jimmie Davis classic "Nobody's Darlin but Mine," and a traditional tune made popular by Raffi, "To Everyone in All the World." Like Barron's liner notes say, this isn't a party album: gather the family 'round and listen to this one around the fireplace or out on the front porch.

Rik Barronӓhineㄠ was nominated for a National Folk Music Award.

CD Seletions: Shine, Calliope, Azalea Waltz, Bring Me Little Water Sylvie, My Mindǯt A Mind Of ItϷn, Suzuka Lullaby, To Everyone In All The World, Nobodyġrlin⵴ Mine, Let The Mystery Be, Sweethearts, Sleepy Town

The majority of the songs were written by Bud Davidge and they tell stories of real Newfoundland events, history and tales of tragedy.

Free & Easy - Larry Foley
Free & Easy

After almost twenty years of writing, recording, producing music and fronting such bands as The Punters and The 8 Track Favourites Larry Foley has emerged to put his stamp on a body of work which is quickly establishing him as a solo performer.

His new, self-produced recording is a reflection of his roots and his love of a good song.

Here is how Larry describes the process in recording this CD: One real nice day last fall (2011), I put on the tape of my grandfather singing. It's not always easy to do. Here I was, just turned forty, with a boy of my own, sitting in my own recording studio. Towards the end of side B, 祥t Forget Me Notࡰpears in the speakers and as I absorb the beauty of his rendition, the tape cuts off. I was again poisoned. Then I figured, I'd just fix it. I managed to get his voice into my computer and set to accompanying him and making a duet of the unfinished work.

That was the beginning of this recording. I added the odd song that was a favourite around our house and stuff that I just heard and liked that seemed to fit. I heard 夡ls Galore衳 I call it) at the St. Patrick's concert in St. Mary's (where my wife is from). Dad always like レory͹ Aunt Rose-Marie always sings the ﲴ Royal Songᴠfamily gatherings. My cousin Ger in Grand Falls gave me a tape of Wat Brien, that's where ⥥ and Easy㡭e from. I wrote ๧lass鮠the midst of making this recording after a conversation with my father. That's how it came together. So it is very much a collection of folk songs with personal connections. I'm sure many people have similar ties to some of these songs.

The CD also features other great songs such as 嬦 Of MexicoӉ Donáreӌand Of DreamsӓonnyIJeamӉsland Ladyࠡnd 䲥ets Of London좲>

Selections on the CD include: Gulf Of Mexico, SonnyIJeam, Island Lady, Got To Be An End, Land Of Dreams, McClory, Streets Of London, Nedals Galore, Spyglass, Dance In Port Royal, Potluck Polkas, Sweet Forget Me Not, Free & Easy.

After almost twenty years of writing, recording, producing music and fronting such bands as The Punters and The 8 Track Favourites Larry Foley has emerged to put his stamp on a body of work which is quickly establishing him as a solo performer.

His new, self -produced recording is a reflection of his roots, his love of a good song and his long-standing, creative relationship with such musicians as Sandy Morris (WGB) and Chris Ledrew (Bros. in Stereo). It also showcases his unique sound with fiddler Patrick Moran, with whom Larry has performed and recorded with almost exclusively, for over 15 years.

"Memphis" is an ode to the music and the legends of Sun Records and the days of Sam Philips. While, "Old Smile" walks through the universal theme of the passage of time and "Singing on the Wind" is a quintessential ballad of love and loss, written in the celtic tradition, but with a western sound.

The first single 栉 Needed You⯭ the Record is already being played by the VOCM network and KIXX Radio and getting good response from listeners.

His new, self -produced recording is a reflection of his roots, his love of a good song and his long-standing, creative relationship with such musicians as Sandy Morris (WGB) and Chris Ledrew (Bros. in Stereo). It also showcases his unique sound with fiddler Patrick Moran, with whom Larry has performed and recorded with almost exclusively, for over 15 years.

Influences heard on this recording range from Merle Haggard, Gram Parsons, Townes VanZandt and Buck Owens to the folkier and closer-to home-sounds of Ron Hynes, Chris Hennessy and Gordon Lightfoot.

Larry೯ngwriting is featured on six of the songs on the CD. 士 Owenӯng鳠a salute to the legend and incorporates the Telecaster sound that was a trademark of a Buck Owenӯng. "Natural Beauty" is a reflection of sunny California and Larry's many trips to the Golden State. "Clearer the Bottle" is a tale of sin and redemption, inspired by Johnny Cash and Jack Daniels. "Memphis" is an ode to the music and the legends of Sun Records and the days of Sam Philips. While, "Old Smile" walks through the universal theme of the passage of time and "Singing on the Wind" is a quintessential ballad of love and loss, written in the celtic tradition, but with a western sound.

The first single 栉 Needed You⯭ the CD is already being played by the VOCM network and KIXX Radio and getting good response from listeners.

The CD also features other great songs such as 栔eardrops Were PenniesӉ Donáreӗalking On The Moonᮤ 衴ll It Took좲>

Selections on the CD include: Walkin On The Moon, Thatll It Took, Singing On The Wind, Old Smile, Natural Beauty, Memphis, If Teardrops Were Pennies, If I Needed You, I Donáre, Clearer The Bottle, Buck Owenӯng

The Masterless Men - Ode To Age
Ode To Age

This is the first album released by Newfoundland͡sterless Men.

Where Did they come from?

The 1750's, press gangs of the British Navy ferried off many of the strong Irish youths from the southern and western Counties of Ireland to live and work under the most deplorable conditions for their British Masters in its far-flung New World Colonies. In the Colony of Avalon, now Ferryland on the Southern Shore of Newfoundland, these so-called "Irish Youngsters", under the strong and resourceful leadership of Peter Kerrivan, defied their masters' tyranny. Under sentence of hanging, this band of merry rogues retreated to freedom in the mountainous area of the Avalon Wilderness known as the Butter Pots. There they eluded and taunted their former British Masters and flourished for more than a century and became known as "Masterless Men".

For the next century the story for the "Masterless Men" was mostly forgotten, but did live on in the folk tradition of the Southern Shore. In 1991, a new band of Masterless Men was formed. Led by John Curran of Ferryland, this new breed of Masterless Men retreated, not to the Butter Pots... but to rehearsal halls and recording studios, to craft and refine their unique music and songs and create a new sound that has captured the hearts and imaginations of thousands.

Like their namesakes, The Masterless Men of today have evolved and grown. In their incarnation, they paid their dues, working the bars and community concert halls of the Southern Shore and St. John's. With the release of their first album, "Ode to Age" in 1993, they graduated to the larger festivals and concert halls around Newfoundland. Their much anticipated second album "Breakin' New Ground", released March 9th, 1996 was produced by Gabriel Award winning producer Gary O'Driscoll. This album builds on the success of their influences. They have been featured on several radio and television programs and have performed at premiere festivals and concerts to sell-out audiences throughout Atlantic Canada, New England and south to Florida. They have received numerous critical reviews and have appeared with such musical legends as Tommy Makem, Liam Clancy, Foster and Allen, and other internationally known artists.

Lullabies For Bloodshot Eyes
Lullabies For Bloodshot Eyes

Inspired by the birth of his sons, Great Big Sea's S顮 McCann chronicles the beginnings of his journey through fatherhood on the solo debut Lullabies For Bloodshot Eyes. 襠arrival of my two sons prompted a fundamental change in my disposition,㯮fides S顮, ﲠthe first time in my life, someone else mattered more to me than I did...and I was terrified.튠

The responsibility for a new life can be overwhelming for many parents, but not many choose to chronicle their experiences in a disc of dreamy lullabies and late night elegies. 襳e songs were born of the simple fears of a new father; failure, loss, and living up to the hopes and dreams of brand new eyes,⥣alls McCann. 襮 I was a boy the world seemed brighter...and it's good to feel that light once again...even though it scares me.튠

The bittersweet opener ﭥwhere (for Finnegan) was written for his son Finnegan after kissing him good-bye at the airport to resume touring, ৵ess this was my way of finding the bright side of the situation. Things could always be worse.橮al track ﮧt Cry (for Keegan)㡰tures those first few moments after birth when, ೷ear I could see right through him. Translucent. He looked at me with black alien eyes as I picked him up as if to say 'please don't drop me'... And I won't.튠

Others, such as the whiskey soaked ﬤ Me Steady跲itten by Rick Hartley) recall a bygone era of late nights and invincible youth: 䠴he Rose and Thistle circa 1999, I knew immediately this was a classic...I'd just bought my first guitar and was eager to learn. [Rick] taught me to play a D7, but I haven't seen or heard from him since.튠

When he's not on the road, S顮 returns home to his native St. John's to write and spend time with his family. He is currently working on the upcoming Great Big Sea release, due out this summer.

The production has been kept simple, relying instead on the power of their voices and acoustic instruments. Lead singer Geraldine Hollett is a singer with a voice so compelling she can still a noisy room. Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale provide the perfect accompaniment of voice and melody along with guitar, mandolin, fiddle and bouzouki.

John Phillips - Through The Eyes Of A Child (Christmas)
Through The Eyes Of A Child

Through the Eyes of a Child is a Christmas album of original songs, and the culmination of three years of writing and crafting Christmas songs for the Newfoundland and Labrador market. It also has appeal for Newfoundlanders living abroad as the main theme of the album is the quandary of those living away wishing to be home for Christmas. Newfoundlanders at Christmastime all want to be home for Christmas and many journey long distances to do so.

All of the songs on Through The Eyes Of A Child, are John Phillips originals or co-writes with other artists, and reflect the events, joy, frustration, thoughtful wishes, heartbreak, longing, partying, and indeed the things that we all associate with the Christmas season. Only two of these songs were previously available. "This Christmas Count On Me" was released on The Christmas Wish and "The Only Thing Missing Is You" was released on The Christmas Wish 2.

"Rockin' The Rock" will have you singing along as it tells of coming home for Christmas and the partying and merriment surrounding Christmas as you visit friends and family and go mummering. "Christmas On The Island" speaks of sending gifts to friends and family who are no longer at home and the plight of Newfoundlanders who have to move away to find work. "The Happy Tree" is an upbeat song that tells about the frustration of having shopped all year but still having gifts to buy and getting panicked at The Happy Tree. (The Happy Tree is an institution in Newfoundland where people donate gifts and put them under a tree that is set up in the malls. The gifts are distributed to needy boys and girls by the Salvation Army) "Home For Christmas" is the story of a man who is very ill from working in the mines and wants nothing more this Christmas then to see his mother and father just one last time. "Christmas Is Real" tells of the look of mystification in a childॹes as Christmas approaches. Through the eyes of a child Christmas is real, it's the time of their lives they truly believe. "Fishin' Days" talks about an older gentleman, who wants his life to be the way that it used to be in his fishing days, when he was able to fish and when there were fish to be caught. "The Star" is the ageless story, the greatest story ever told. Finally, "Christmas Memories" is an instrumental piece with the feel of the Christmas season.

Through The Eyes Of A Child will be a wonderful addition to your Christmas music collection.

Songs include: This Christmas Count On Me 䨥 Only Thing Missing Is You ⯣kin' The Rock 㨲istmas On The Island 䨥 Happy Tree 语e For Christmas 㨲istmas Is Real 橳hin' Days 䨥 Star 㨲istmas Memories.

The Punters - Fisherman's Blues
Fisherman's Blues

The Punters (Larry Foley and Patrick Moran) are key figures in the exciting music scene in Atlantic Canada. Drawing upon their rich musical heritage, The Punters combine rock, folk, and traditional music, creating a sound that is truly their own.

The Punters have three recordings under their belt since 1996 (The Punters, Said She Couldn't Dance, and Will You Wait), all three of which were met with national and critical acclaim. Fisherman's Blues, the band's fourth CD, is a testament to the strength and relevance of their musicianship and their unrelenting passion for the music of Newfoundland.

The self-produced Fisherman's Blues delivers a redefined sense of direction that is true to their roots (a little bit traditional, a little bit rock & roll). The CD showcases the band's growth and maturity, with a selection of pop songs, traditional songs, and their trademark instrumental tunes. The CD also features two songs which were written by Larry Foley that are true pop music gems ("She Ain't You" and "Close Your Eyes"). As well, there are great covers of some older and somewhat forgotten songs ("No Other Baby" and "Brown Eyed Handsome Man"), and traditional gems ("Heave Away", "Banks of Newfoundland" and "Big Bow Wow"). Patrick sings a traditional song, "I Had But 50 Cents", that has never been recorded, and is sure to be a staple on traditional music shows. The title track, "Fisherman's Blues" is a song the band has been performing since its inception. Included in this version is an original verse, written by Larry Foley, to reflect the realities of the fishing industry and out-migration in Newfoundland. Finally, Steve Earle's "Galway Girl" is given a Celtic feel and has become one of the most requested songs at The Punters' live shows.

On This CD, The Punters are joined by some of the best musicians in Newfoundland: including George Morgan, Paul "Boomer" Stamp, Adam Staple, Chris Batstone, Barry Hillier and Mark Hiscock. Fisherman's Blues is truly a home grown project and is arguably The Punters' best recording to date.

Stan Rogers - The Very Best Of
The Very Best Of

The Very Best Of Stan Rogers is a collection of 16 great Stan Rogers tracks, as chosen by Ariel Rogers and Paul Mills. The songs have been digitally remastered using the latest technology and sound deeper and richer than ever before.

A child of Maritime stock on both sides of his family, Stan Rogers was born in Hamilton, Ont. on November 29, 1949. He grew to be a big man-six feet four-built like a fire truck, and possessed of a voice that rumbled from his toes. He could bluff and bellow yet was at heart a poet and intellect who would, often as not, sneak away from a gathering to curl up with a book. He made friends and enemies easily, gaining the former for life and often, in time, converting the latter.

He became a songwriter too, working as a rock bassist while still a teenager and later embracing the folk idiom. After a few years as a more-or-less conventional folkie songwriter, he discovered his real gift. After some persuasion by his Aunt June in Canso Nova Scotia, he began to write songs about his familial home鳠roots. Those early songs found their way on to Stan঩rst album, Fogartyïve, and he was on his way. From that point forward, Stanࢥst writing was about the Canadian experience. His songs gave a new voice to ordinary folks who worked the fisheries, mines and farms of this vast country.

Stan was a passionate Canadian partisan, and much of his short creative life was taken up with song cycles that chronicled the East, the Plains, the West and finally the Great Lakes and Ontario. It was a natural progression for a wanderercan a continent and finally return to write of the wonders of home. He was always on the road pursuing his dream of establishing a national identity for Canadian songwriting. It was a dream fulfilled; through his constant soaring, dynamic performances, and brilliant songs, he was known throughout most of the English-speaking folk music world.

His music continues to amaze, amuse and inspire people from all walks of life. It has appeared in several poetry anthologies, been used in films, plays and musicals, and has been referred to as of the touchstones of modern Canadian history.ꠍ

Selections on CD: Fogarty's Cove, Free in the Harbour, White Squall, Make and Break Harbour, Barrett's Privateers, The Flowers of Bermuda, Tiny Fish for Japan, The Last Watch, Forty-five Years, Northwest Passage, Lock-keeper, The Idiot, The Jeannie C., The Field Behind the Plow, Lies, The Mary Ellen Carter.

Their repertoire has remained a vital ingredient in Newfoundland music to the extent that it is virtually impossible to attend a kitchen party where McNulty songs and tunes will not be heard.

This selection by Shanneyganock will introduce a new generation to the McNulty୵sic and remind the older crowd of just how fine that music was and is!

Simani - The Instrumental Side Of
Simani

The Newfoundland musical duet, SIMANI, have been a cornerstone in traditional Newfoundland music. Formed in 1977 by Bud Davidge and Sim Savory, their music helped keep our unique heritage alive by putting old stories to song and recording local jigs and reels, many that had never before been recorded. There is no doubt that SIMANI are a household name in Newfoundland and Labrador and surely there is a recording or two of SIMANI in virtually every house in the province, as well as in many expatriate Newfoundlanderਯmes around the world.

Nearly all of SIMANI's recorded songs are originals, written by Bud Davidge who was also the vocalist for the group. Sim Savory is a gifted musician, being a master of many instruments, as well as a very talented sound engineer. That variety of talent worked very well for SIMANI and it showed in the quality of their recordings.

In a musical career that lasted from 1977 to 1997, SIMANI were stars with major radio airplay and sold out shows wherever they performed. Since their first recording ᬴water Cowboys鮠1981, they have produced 12 recordings. To their credit SIMANI defined a sound that became predominant in many recording that were done in Newfoundland and Labrador in the 1980's. Their albums were mostly recorded at Sim's studio in Belleoram.

Unfortunately for the Newfoundland music scene Sim passed away in 2010 but Bud is still releasing solo recordings.

In 2002 SIMANI (Bud & Sim) were recognized for their long term contributions to the East Coast Music Industry by being presented with the Stompin' Tom Award at the East Coast Music Awards. In 2008 Bud and Sim were awarded the Music NL Lifetime Achievement Award.

SIMANI have an extensive catalogue of songs. Bud Davidge is quite an accomplished writer and singer and Sim gave that signature Simani instrumentation and sound to every recording. Because of their success with the Newfoundland & Country songs many of their Instrumental recordings were underappreciated. This collection will attest to their instrumental ability and we are pleased to present this compilation that captures

Johnny Burke Songbook - Various Artists
Johnny Burke Songbook

Johnny Burke (1851 ṳ0) was affectionately known as the "Bard of Prescott Street." Prescott Street being where he lived and worked for most of his adult life.

He was a singing poet; he recited poems of his own composition; and he wrote verse for the purpose of historical commentary. Newfoundlanders came to see Johnny Burke as the pre-eminent commentator on the fast-breaking events of the day, an editorialist, satirist, and busker all rolled into one.

His work as a popular artist was his consuming avocation: the public ate him up. Burke's practice was to write variously humorous, satirical, witty, and sentimental ballads on current events, as the occasion arose and with all the immediacy he could muster, then print them on broadsheets and hire boys to sell them in the streets of St. John's at two to five cents per copy.

His kind of commentary on Newfoundland attitudes was immensely popular. Burke did much to consolidate opinion in his day and the public came to believe nothing in Newfoundland was really finished, until Johnny Burke had written a song about it.

Burke's balladry ranges from parodic to satiric in mood. One of his most popular and enduring songs, and his personal favorite, "Cod Liver Oil" is a parody of a popular nineteenth century Irish song. In all his ballads Burke wrote original words but no musical accompaniment, relying instead on the well-known melodies of music-hall and stage-Irish songs of the day. Burke's best-written and most enduring songs gauge the tensions of social gatherings as captured in songs like "The Kelligrew's Soiree" and "The Trinity Cake튍 J

ohnny Burke's songs became very well known, due in part to the broadsheets and songsters that he printed and sold as well as through local publications, the Gerald S Doyle Songbooks and the great oral tradition of folk music. And to this day Burke's songs are very much a staple for many well known and up and coming performers in Newfoundland & Labrador.

Whether itӔhe Loss Of The Truxton & Pollux෨ich tells of tragedy at sea, 襠Nellie J Banks᢯ut rum running during prohibition days, 岲yland Sealer᢯ut our sealing heritage, and the many other topics about working on and around the sea with its perils and joy. All these represent what is dealt with on an ongoing basis for the people of this island.

Women Of Song
Women Of Song

The character of Newfoundland Labrador women was defined a long time ago by the women who took their place alongside the men in doing all kinds of hard work to keep and maintain a family life.

Many times and for long periods of time the men went away to work and provide for their families and the women stayed at home and took on the full responsibility for their homes and families.

Our women were very important in preserving the songs of their homeland and the newfound songs they learned in their new land.

The women singers in Newfoundland Labrador are a very talented group that can compare with the best anywhere in the world and we are pleased to be able to present and showcase some of them for you in this first in a series of CDഩtled 左oundland Labrador Women Of Song͊
