Sarah Harmer released a charming music video yesterday from her acclaimed new album, “Are You Gone.” Accompanying the cozy, homebound track “Little Frogs” is an endearing portrait of a flannel-clad frog created by JUNO Award Winning and Gemini-nominated director and puppeteer (and good friend of GDW) Ali J Eisner.

"Written from a list of summer memories and life’s small pleasures, the video takes you through a day in the life of a little frog – hoser by day, crooner by nightfall,” says Harmer, who joins her friend in chorus by barnyard candlelight.

"Creating this video for Sarah was so joyful,” says Eisner. “Her music always makes my heart feel so good, so to support her art through visuals was a golden experience. As a friend, Sarah has taught me a lot about the science of nature and staying grateful inside its gifts - so our little frog friend decided to spend some quality time high fiving that feeling.”

Following the release of her interpretation of the Leonard Cohen classic, “Anthem,” JUNO and SOCAN Music Award-winner, Laila Biali, returns to pay homage to another Canadian icon: Joni Mitchell. Biali shares an enchanting cover of Mitchell’s, “Both Sides Now” – just ahead of the legendary singer-songwriter’s 77th birthday.

The intimate arrangement of “Both Sides Now” was born out of Biali’s Joni75 series, which she started in 2018 when Mitchell turned 75-years-old. Biali’s stripped down approach illuminates the song’s poignant lyrics that speak to the heart.

“We didn't realize at the time how this song and its message would take on new meaning in the midst of a global pandemic and a very uncertain US election week,” reflects Biali. “It was mostly meant to celebrate Joni's birthday this coming Saturday. But, as with much of her material, the lyrics remain as relevant to our lives as ever; and in these times, I hope they bring comfort and perspective.”

m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=ughir9LXfMEIt's been 75 days since Joni Mitchell turned 75, and that means it's time to officially launch Joni75 :: The Living Room Sessions. Here's cover #2, Both Side...

As with most memorable vacations, the timing was both perfect and terrible for the March release of “Holiday,” Jennah Barry's second album, eight years in gestation. It has been excellent company while we've been sequestered in our rooms in this Holiday In; these are the songs I've heard sung in our shower, and harmonized over our kitchen stove. Jennah recorded the album at home with her partner and sleeping baby, before that was cool; the result is a marriage of lofty breeziness and intimate rumination, a prescient journal entry for 2020.

“Pink Grey Blue” begins with an anticipatory deep breath before the pastel melancholy in Jennah's voice is answered by precarious soap opera strings. "As long as I get up and out / The day goes / Nothing good could happen home here / With my mind closed." Whatever this year and the next hold for us, “Holiday” is already a forever favorite.
