Alberta artist Joe Nolan has released the second single off his upcoming album, Drifters, called “Jaguar.”
The emotional song, produced by Scott Franchuk, sees Nolan wear his heart on his sleeve in the very first line of the song: “One part human / one part hurricane.” This energy is expected to continue on Drifters, which will mostly feature acoustic songs.
“I wanted to keep it as stripped down as possible,” says Nolan of his forthcoming release. “We recorded most of it to my Tascam two-track reel-to-reel in an attempt to make something that resembled the sounds of my favorite records from the ‘70s with that real warm tape sound and vibe. I also have always wanted to collaborate with guitarist Kevin Breit (Norah Jones), and he graciously added some beautiful touches to this album.”
“Drifters” will be the first release of Nolan’s through Fallen Tree Records, a folk label based in Edmonton, Alberta.
Hey! I’m Allen Steinberg and I’m currently based in Belleville, Ontario. I’m a Journalism & Communications student doing my four-week placement with Canadian Beats because I love writing and I love music. Outlets like Canadian Beats are important because they care about showing off smaller / newer artists who may otherwise not get much exposure. I think it really keeps them going. I also sing and play guitar in my band Arm’s Length. Happy to be here!
