CHARLOTTE CORNFIELD ANNOUNCES FUTURE SNOWBIRD
TORONTO SONGWRITER TO RELEASE NEW LP ON MARCH 11 VIA CONSONANT RECORDS
CHARLOTTE CORNFIELD’S RESIDENCY AT TORONTO’S CAMERON HOUSE BEGINS TODAY AND RUNS THROUGHOUT JANUARY
CANADIAN TOUR DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON
Toronto’s Charlotte Cornfield is a song farmer. She sings clever, heart-wrenching songs in a lived-in, streetwise drawl. Future Snowbird, the follow up to the acclaimed 2011 album Two Horses, grew from Cornfield’s time living in New York and the background noise of her moments in the city: a formative relationship, a vicious bout of psoriasis, and an overall constellation of ups and downs.
Set for release on March 11 via Consonant Records, Future Snowbird was recorded live off the floor at Rooster Studios in Toronto with Cornfield's longtime bandmates (Sam Gleason, Damon Hankoff, Kathryn Palumbo and Sam Rosenberg), and produced and engineered by Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith, The Rheostatics), with guest Performances by Tim Darcy (Ought) and Johnny Spence (Tegan & Sara). The result is Cornfield's strongest statement to date, each song a moodscape all its own. “The song ‘Aslan’ was the first real New York track,” recalls Cornfield. “I wrote it when I first moved to Brooklyn. It's about accepting that sometimes things are beyond your control and it's okay. You don't have to go crazy chasing answers. You can just be yourself and do what you do and then they'll come to you."
Recently Charlotte Cornfield completed a residency at the prestigious Banff Centre, where she recorded and collaborated with Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew, and Charles Spearin of Broken Social Scene. Beginning today, Cornfield starts a residency at Toronto’s Cameron House. More Canadian tour dates to support Future Snowbird will be announced shortly.
Aside from her work as a solo artist, Charlotte Cornfield has held down the drum chair for Ben Caplan, Peter Nevins, and Adrian Underhill. She recently began working on a new project with Tim Darcy of Ought, and beyond her own discography she has a vault of recording and performing credits as a drummer and singer with The Provincial Archive, Anais Mitchell, The Reverend John DeLore, and The Keys. Her songs have appeared in films and television shows internationally, and she's shared stages with the likes of Sharon Van Etten, Sun Kil Moon, and Lake Street Dive.
