Dundas-based Cootes Paradise releases first CD

WhatsOn Dec 06, 2017 Dundas Star News

Cootes Paradise will celebrate its first CD release by throwing a party at Hamilton’s historic landmark pub, the Corktown.

The self-titled CD features 12 songs (10 originals and two covers) and represents the rootsy, contemporary blues style that emanates from the vocal chords of Sue Leonard and Wayne Krawchuk. The pair are joined by Lily Sazz on keyboards, Amy Di Nino on drums, Ian Taylor on bass and Mark Volkov on flute, sax and violin.

Songs cover a wide range of topics, including love, lust, angst, humour and even a protest song. The track Wake Up features voices from the Grand River Voices choir, which joined in to provide a “Greek Chorus,” to help spread a message of love and light in a dangerous world.

The debut CD is produced by Nick Blagona, who has worked with legends like Cat Stevens, Deep Purple, Monster Truck and the Sheepdogs. It was recorded at Grant Avenue and Psychotropic studios, and features cover art by Michael Wrycraft.

Based in Dundas, the band takes its name from the nearby Cootes Paradise wetlands.

The launch party takes place Sunday, Jan. 14, 7 p.m., 175 Young St. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Visit www.cootesparadiseband.ca for details.
