Winsome Kind are excited to announce the release of their 2nd full length album We Call It Home, coming August 24, 2018. With support from Creative BC, and in collaboration with producer Tom Dobrzanski of Monarch Studios, they've created a compelling and fresh new album of feel good songs. Pre-Order available now!
Listening to Winsome Kind is like an invigorating conversation and a warm hug from a good friend. Infusing personal stories with luxurious harmonies, their voices sound as if they have always belonged together. Indeed, Leora & Scott creating not just music, but also a life together has always felt meant to be.
Scott Perrie and Leora Joy met in 2012 while performing in a production of The Buddy Holly Story in Saskatchewan, and fell in love. They travelled across Canada on the Via Rail from coast to coast, performing in train stations, living rooms, and live music venues all the way. Upon returning home to Vancouver they recorded their self-titled debut album, which garnered critical acclaim from the CBC and media across Canada, They have had the honour of performing at such venues as the Harmony Arts Festival (North Vancouver), Music in the Park (Capilano), Voices of Hope Benefit Concert (Vancouver), and a beautiful cd release show with the Rogue Folk Society of Vancouver. They warmed the airwaves in 2016 with a brand new holiday single, Sweet Second, and a live studio version of the beloved Gordon Lightfoot tune Song for a Winter’s Night.
They have embraced life as self-propelled artists and new parents, and their anticipated 2nd full-length album reflects their passion and urge for connection. They found their 2 weeks in the studio this past fall to be all at once rewarding and challenging, writing and arranging brand new songs while parenting an adventurous little toddler. Leora was also 7 months pregnant at the time, and after a long vocal session in front of the microphone -a workout for a pregnant body- found that quick naps on the studio couch while listening to Scott’s guitar takes became inevitable. It was all worthwhile and, with the help of some of Vancouver’s best musicians, they created an album that showcases their gift for heartfelt lyrics and memorable melodies, and they are excited to pass on that gift to the world, through an album of feel-good music with positive messages.
You may also find either Scott or Leora at any time on a theatre stage, in a movie or tv show, or voicing a cartoon, but you can be sure to see them as their most authentic selves singing and playing their original music to an audience, large or small, young or old, or anywhere in between. Thank you for listening.
“This Much Is True, encapsulates Winsome Kind’s best sensibilities superbly: their flawless vocal duets, gleeful attitude, and catchy sing-along chorus lines." (Elysse Cloma, Grayowl Point)
