This summer is shaping up to be a busy one! We're excited to be back at Goodlot a few times this summer, with two appearances in June. The porch party season is off to the races with Hohner Ave, Grand, and Ayr porch parties in the next few weeks - these are some of our absolute favourite shows. 

In June we're taking some longer trips and playing some very local shows, we're ready to hit the road and get our busy summer off to a great start! If you see us out there at a show, come say hi, we'd love to see you! 

We released a single: Hell or High Water 

Listen Now! 

Hell or High Water is a song about the most famous shipwreck in history, but it doesn’t dwell on chaos, destruction, and loss (like the many other Titanic-inspired songs). Instead, it tells of the RMS Carpathia: the small steamship whose captain, crew, and passengers joined forces to overcome weather, ocean, and odds to rescue all survivors. The words are based (with permission!) off of a wonderful re-telling of the story written by Tumblr writer MyLordShesACactus that always makes songwriter Esther Wheaton tear up - you can read the original post here.

Part stirring sea shanty, part lyrical old-time ballad, the music and arrangement reflect the lyrics; each band member relays part of the story solo until a powerful final chorus is sung in unison. With references to Blind Willie Johnson’s God Moved on the Water, Gillian Welch’s Ruination Day, and Gordon Lightfoot’s Wreck of the Edmund FitzgeraldHell or High Water blends its folk touchstones into something new and compelling. 

Onion Honey recorded this single in March with Andy Magoffin at his House of Miracles in Cambridge, Ontario.
