Hear Siobhan Sloane-Seale’s ‘Too Far To Go’ from debut album out Oct. 18
On her debut album, One Of My Friends, Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Siobhan Sloane-Seale offers 11 gorgeous observations of the world around her, each revealing profound insights into the human condition. Set against the backdrop of restrained-yet-inventive arrangements, the songs are the ideal showcase for Siobhan’s easy flowing voice and poetry.
The album will be released Oct. 18 via Bandcamp, and we’re thrilled to preview the track “Too Far To Go.” The Vancouver launch of One Of My Friends takes place Oct. 19 at Beaumont Studios (see full details below).
One Of My Friends may be Siobhan Sloane-Seale’s introduction to the wider folk-rock world, but it is the result of over a decade of experience within the Vancouver arts scene and as a social justice activist. Since moving from Winnipeg in 1998 to study dance at Simon Fraser University, Siobhan has been a part of many projects as a musician, dancer, and actor, while slowly amassing an impressive collection of original material, along with the team to get it down on tape. That includes producer/bassist Jesse Waldman of Vancouver’s Redlight Sound, lead guitarist Caroline Allatt, drummer Connor Charles Brooks, keyboardist Mike Turner, percussionist Robin Layne, trumpeter Nikola Tosic and backing vocalist Tania Gosgnach.
The chemistry they generated gives the album a live feel overall, while at the same time drawing the listener in with an irresistible intimacy. That shines through brilliantly from the powerful opener “The Rain Can’t Help It” to the uplifting, self-assured title track that closes the album.
Siobhan Sloane-Seale is that rare kind of artist whose positivity is truly irresistible and more impactful with each listen. One Of My Friends captures it all beautifully and is sure to become her calling card to audiences across Canada and around the world.
