There’s no mistaking the chemistry when you hear Vancouver’s husband and wife duo, Winsome Kind. The story of their love is almost as beautiful as their music, which highlights luxurious harmonies and heartfelt lyrics.
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.
Scott & Leora have since married, and had a beautiful baby boy. Life continues to be full of surprises and adventures, and through it all they keep creating music.
Winsome Kind will be warming the airwaves this season 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, both to be released November 29, 2016.
Getting in to the studio this fall took a little planning, with their 17-month old son and Scott’s full schedule performing at the Globe Theatre in Regina (Leora’s hometown). But with a little help from Grandpa, they booked a day at Jason Plumb’s Studio One in the CBC Saskatchewan building, where they were joined by friends and world-class musicians, Mike Thompson on drums, Chris Berti on bass, and Craig Salkeld on piano. They invited Gabe Dipple from On Reel Media to capture the live studio session. The songs were then mixed by Tom Dobrzanski at Monarch Studios in Vancouver. Scott and Leora are incredibly pleased with the result, and can’t wait to share this new music with you this holiday season.
