Canadian roots, blues, and alt-rocker Ariel Posen is back with his newest video for “Familiar Ground”.
The intimate and behind-the-scenes video features a 45-minute studio session covering the entirety of his latest album; Familiar Ground: Part 1, which is available now. The two-part release — including the forthcoming Familiar Ground: Part 2 — sees the Winnipeg-based singer/songwriter lay a live-off-the-floor take on his 10-track debut LP, How Long, in the studio that it was recorded in.
“This is a final hurrah of sorts for How Long,” Posen offers of Familiar Ground as a project. “I’m going to move towards putting out new music very soon, and I wanted to put together a special kind of experience to mark the end of this chapter.”
With an air-tight guest list of just 25 family members and friends, the intimate event was held at one of Posen’s favoured places, Winnipeg’s Stereobus Recording.
“It was especially special because, even though there were 25 guests there for this, we were able to record this in a space that’s very near and dear to me. I wanted to show these songs in their rawest and most evolved form, and to have it at Stereobus…It could only be described as Familiar Ground.”
