SNEAK PREVIEW PRIVATE LISTEN holiday release “ALL WILL BE WELL” Nov 4
6-song holiday EP including 2 new original Christmas songs
available on CD and digital – pre-order at www.fortunateones.ca/music
|Christmas is our favourite time of year. When the air gets cold and leaves start falling we resist the urge to prematurely spin Bing Crosby, sing Silver Bells through the halls and watch our favourite Christmas movies. We love the season, so it wasn’t a stretch for us to get into the holiday spirit to record this EP.
Produced by Mark Neary (The Once/Amelia Curran), All Will Be Well was recorded in St. John’s, Newfoundland. We had some wonderful local musicians play on the EP, including Andrew Dale (The Once), Phil Maloney (Hey Rosetta!), and Emilia Bartellas (The Dardanelles). This collection of songs is a tip of the hat to a handful of classics that we love, but also an opportunity to put into words and music our own feelings about the season.
The songs on the EP have special meaning to us, and our goal was to capture the joy and nostalgia that we feel for this time of year. For us, Christmas is a time of year for reflection, appreciation and gratitude and we hope that these sentiments come through the music on All Will Be Well.
