Edmonton folk singer and storyteller Maddie Storvold is thrilled to share her new political power ballad, “Night Sweats”.
“I wrote that one just out of fear, which is a new emotion I’m exploring,” she says. “I fell asleep in my mom’s bed with the news on. I was kind of in that half-awake, half-asleep state, and I could hear the news in the background and I woke up fully drenched and realizing that physical reaction to the political world and how much these things affect us on a micro-level.”
“Night Sweats” is the first single from Maddie’s second album, Freedom, Books, Flowers and the Moon, which was released on December 15. Her new songs are also the centrepiece of an upcoming episode of PBS’s live concert series, Stampede City Sessions, filmed in Calgary. Previous performers include Roseanne Cash, Jess Moskaluke, Leeroy Stagger and Lisa Hannigan.
Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
