Album: The Great Unknown
Release Date: March 10, 2017
Genre: Pop/Soft Rock/ Country
Kasha Anne and Mitch Smith, are the voices behind the country band The Orchard. Their newly released album The Great Unknown has hit shelves; it is a lovely mix of soft rock, country and pop. They don’t follow the grain and that is what is great, and different about them. This album steps out and reaches its listeners, especially those who dream. The Alberta natives have finally found their sound on this third album release.
This album is best described as a vision of ignoring the grain and following what comes to them naturally. They have defined themselves personally and it is evident in this release.
“Sometimes I Wonder”: I have listened to this one single over and over, the title alone spoke to me. It makes a person feel like it is possible to follow those, I wish I could moments, or did you ever think you could. It’s a song of freedom and letting go, I believe that a lot of us can relate to.
“A Dream Inside a Dream”: Is a song about something we thought would be a dream but in reality is a bad dream. It is a melody that is relatable to a lot of us, we think that there is this dream person but in reality when the dream becomes true it isn’t what we had wished for. This song has a soft rock/pop sound, another great addition to this album.
My name is Marianne and a music lover from Nova Scotia. I am a full time working mom of 2 beautiful girls who are full of life and love. I have an absolute passion for music and writing, I jumped at the opportunity to freelance for Canadian Beats. I love local music, I grew up in a family full of Gaelic singers in Cape Breton but I also have a passion for country and just about anything else that catches my ear. Writing gives me something of my own that is completely out of my day to day activity, it somewhat allows me to escape my everyday.
When I am not working, writing and hanging out with my husband and girls, I am running, reading or riding my horse.
