About Love Canon: LOVE CANON brings their acoustic-roots sensibilities to the electronic-tinged pop hits of the 80’s and 90’s to create Cover Story, their 4th album, due out on Organic Records July 13, 2018. With Cover Story, LOVE CANON delivers a fresh set of classics, crossing genres to recount music of decades past from the likes of Peter Gabriel, Billy Joel, Depeche Mode, and Paul Simon. The self-produced album hosts a plethora of special guests including Jerry Douglas, Aoife O’Donovan, Keller Williams, Michael Cleveland, and Eric Krasno, among others.
The band’s diehard fans are music lovers first and are drawn to the charismatic and wide-ranging vocal stylings of lead singer and guitarist Jesse Harper matched with banjo master Adam Larrabee, mandolin pickin’ by Andy Thacker, Darrell Muller holding down the low-end on standup bass, and the slick sounds of resonator guitar king Jay Starling on the Beard MA-6. It’s acoustic rock! Acclaimed fiddler Alex Hargreaves [Turtle Island Quartet, Sarah Jarosz] does all of the fiddling on this record with the exception of two tracks, and he occasionally joins them on tour.
About Strong Water: Born out of the vibrant college based community that is Harrisonburg, Virginia, Strong Water has experienced life as a project like most bands. Members have come and gone, the sound has changed slightly and matured as those involved have matured, but the vision and energy which has carried the group for so many years still remains the same.
What originally started as a duo, swelled to become a six piece before settling on it’s now-three dedicated members whose performance is built on strong Male and Female lead vocals supported by harmonies, driving Acoustic/Electric Guitar and Banjo parts, well crafted melodic Fiddle lines, rounded out by tasteful Drums/Percussion, and Bass Guitar. Strong Water’s eclectic collection of original songs range from genres such as Bluegrass & Blues, to their personal spin on Americana and Folk-Rock, incorporating sounds and styles from influences such as Mumford and Sons, Judah & the Lion, and The Lone Bellow.
