On Future Snowbird Cornfield sings clever, heart-wrenching songs in a lived-in, streetwise drawl. Available to stream today courtesy of Exclaim!, the record 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, Cornfield tested out Future Snowbird with audiences during her recent residency at The Cameron House where she was joined onstage by many friends and guests, including Tim Darcy (Ought) and Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene). Now ready to hit the road to support the new record she will begin a string of tour dates on March 3. Full tour dates can be found below.
The album 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 and Johnny Spence (Tegan & Sara). The result is Cornfield's strongest statement to date, each song a moodscape all its own.
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. 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.
