THE STORY IN SHORT

Born in a small fishing town in northern British Columbia, David Simard is a singer, storyteller and multi-instrumentalist who imbibes his work with a certain nostalgia in time, reflections on the theme of place, and a generous sense of space.


The majority of his new album, 'The Heavy Wait', was recorded in a charged live-off-the-floor session in Arcade Fire’s old 'Petite Église' studio in Farnham, Québec. Waves of horns and lap steel guitar, sparsely placed piano, and haunting clarinet lines recorded later in Paris and Vancouver rush to complement the live performances.  Eleven songs written over a period of eight years spent between Montréal, Paris, Vancouver, and Dorreen - an abandoned mining town in Northern British Columbia.  Eleven songs that hold in balance both a dark smouldering energy and an airy relief – both valley bottom and mountain summit.  An album with a palpable intensity that remains somehow soothing.


Since the release of his debut 'Slower, Lower' in 2011, David Simard has toured extensively throughout Canada and across Europe, sharing stages with the likes of Timber Timbre, Half Moon Run, and The Weather Station.

PRE-ORDER, WHAT FOR?

By pre-ordering 'The Heavy Wait' today, you make it possible for the label and David himself to cover some of the recording, mastering and manufacturing costs. But it will also help financing a PR campaign for the album so we make sure you're not the only ones hearing about it.

Thanks so much for getting involved!

PRESS CLIPS

’An atmospheric, brooding, and compelling collection of dark-yet-pretty folk songs that artfully wend their way into one’s brain, and lodge there.’
- David Morrison (Folk Radio)

‘A set of lush, twangy tracks that range from wistful to whimsical.’
- Sarah Murphy (Exclaim!)

’An album that offers something more every time to the listener once they become entangled in his moods, and get to understand the beauty of his songs.’
- Maurice Hope (Flying Shoes)

‘Play it loud, play it often and take the time to listen.’
- Marc Higgins (Northern Sky Magazine)

‘This tremendous album is classic 'country noir,' perhaps even defining this term with its powerful atmospheric spookiness.’
- American Roots
