We’re pleased to feature the video for “All Your Dresses” by Luke Nicholson here on Great Dark Wonder! This terrific song is releasing to radio next week; we hope you’ll listen for it and ask your local radio station to play it.
As with Nicholson’s previous work, this song focuses on a theme that is highly personal but to which many of us can relate: the joy of a relationship with our partner/spouse as that relationship evolves and grows over time (captured through the metaphor of dresses).
Luke Nicholson first broke onto the Canadian music scene in 2007 with his song “Breathe” (from the film “Poor Boys Game”), which garnered a Genie nomination. Three of the singles from his debut album “Mad Love” (2012) charted on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20; Nicholson followed up that success with “Frantic City,” a 2015 release that spotlighted the delicate balance between new fatherhood and life as a touring musician.
“All Your Dresses” is the first single from Nicholson’s forthcoming album, “Shape and Sound,” which is currently scheduled to release on 14 April 2017 on Maggie’s Room/Fontana North Records. For this project, Nicholson chose not to outsource instrumental parts, instead sharing playing and producing duties with co-producer Marty Skrzypczyk. The result is an immediate, warm, energetic sound; we look forward to hearing the rest of the album this spring.
