Fearing & White on Tour: Sept 2014

biopic   We are heading back out on the road in September with tour dates in Ontario and Alberta. For the Ontario dates, we will be joined by Blackie and The Rodeo Kings drummer – Gary  Craig, who played on most of the tracks for Tea and Confidences. In Alberta we are joined by the outstanding drummer Kent Macrae. It’s exciting to hear these tracks come alive as a trio and really fun to watch Andy simultaneously play bass pedals with his feet, whilst singing and playing guitar. Stephen gets to stretch out on various electric guitars and sing his heart out…. it suits him.

There are still a few dates to be announced,  but here is what we’ve got so far.

 

 

Fearing & White at The Neat, Burnstown ON
Fearing & White at Aeolian Hall, London ON
Fearing & White at Acoustic Grill, Picton ON
Fearing & White at the EBar, Guelph ON
Fearing & White at Moonshine Cafe, Oakville ON
Fearing & White at Hugh’s Room, Toronto ON
Fearing & White at Black Sheep Inn, Wakefield QC

Tour dates are of course on the TOUR page if you prefer. Anybody out there taking pictures of the band and using Instagram can add  #fearingandwhite and those pictures will be posted on this website in the Instagram section of the Photos page. Hope you can make it out to some of the shows.

Tea and Confidences – Release – March 4th

We are very pleased to announce that Tea and Confidences – our second long-playing record album (!) will be released in Canada, March 4th and will be available in any decent record stores that still exist, on iTunes and (of course) from us in person… signed!

Our first album entitled Fearing& White - was written in week-long sessions over about ten years, but with Andy and I both so busy these days, and (still) living on opposite sides of the planet, we knew that we would have to work fast to write the the new one… to cut a long story short, we basically wrote Tea and Confidences in two short bursts of inspired madness (a brief stint in January 2012 at my house in Halifax got the ball rolling, followed by a 4 day write-athon on Saltspring Island in August 2012, where we nailed 11 songs and killed a few bottles of wine). The album was recorded in Guelph – January 2013, at Scott Merritt’s The Cottage studio with Gary Craig on drums/percussion with special guests: Jeff Bird (Cowboy Junkies) – Harmonica and Ray Farrugia (LeE HarvEy Osmond) – Drums. This new recording is a big step forward for Fearing & White,  and as our bio says,  … sounds like each man’s most urgent statement to date. The songs are filled with big tones and the pure excitement of creation. … guitar-driven rock numbers built around jukebox-ready grooves (“We Came Together”, “Sanctuary”) and aching harmonies with no-frills arrangements on ballads (“Emigrant Song”, “Another Time Another Place”). On Tea and Confidences it’s all brought to life with a spark and the spirit of discovery hanging thick in the air.” You want to hear (and download for free) a cut? Click here, have a listen and share it with your pals… you’re welcome : – )

Tour plans are coming together quickly with twenty plus shows booked across western Canada in March and April, plans for the summer and fall are afoot and, well, it’s going to be “interesting” to see if I can keep all the balls in the air. Here are our tour dates.

Fearing & White second album mixing in LA

Stephen and Andy have just spent a week mixing the second Fearing & White album in LA. 11 cracking new tunes. And, no, they weren’t wearing their winter gear. The dynamic duo played earlier this year at Folk Alliance in Toronto, and on July 11 they’re making a surprise appearance at a Flood Benefit show in Calgary, a city dear to their hearts and where the first album idea was hatched. So this is to say hi … it’s happening … Fearing & White will be very busy in 2014 … stay tuned!

Fearing & White tour BC this July

Fearing & White are confirmed to play Vancouver Folk Festival, the Artspring concert series on Salt Spring Island, and the Islands Folk Festival on Vancouver Island, this coming July. Have a look at our tour page for dates and details.

Thanks for the tour and ‘Rockwood’ video

Another great tour of Canada has come and gone – Alberta this time, with sold-out shows in Edmonton, Calgary and … Cranbrook (OK, it’s BC). We’ve also started to write songs for the next album – finishing the set each night with one of them. We’re going our separate ways until the summer, when there’s a rumour we’ll be popping up in BC again … in the meantime, here’s a link to a video put together by our good friend Rob Hamill, a wonderful photographer based in Red Deer, Alberta. Downshift today! A & S
