Basia Bulat plays The Club on Saturday, April 12.
Polaris Prize-nominated and Banff Indie Band Residency alumna Basia Bulat returns to The Banff Centre for an intimate concert in The Club. Her third album, Tall Tall Shadow, is the bravest album she has made. Raw and spectral, heartbroken yet jubilant, these ten songs tell the story of a very hard year in the artist's life and all the love that helped her through it.
Bulat co-produced the album with Tim Kingsbury and Mark Lawson. Kingsbury, a member of Arcade Fire, "can play anything," she says. Lawson, who has worked on records with Akron/Family and Colin Stetson, and who won a Grammy for his work on Arcade Fire's The Suburbs, is a studio alchemist; "he hears new things" in Bulat's songs. They started recording in Toronto, at a reverberating 60-year-old dance hall. Once again, Bulat put together a band: her brother, the punk-inclined drummer Bobby Bulat; Holly Coish on keys and backing vocals; Kingsbury and Ben Whiteley on guitars and bass.
"A sound that nods to Fleetwood Mac and early Joni Mitchell. Ms. Bulat has a voice well suited to interiority, warm and honeyed." - The New York Times
