Rachel Beck, live at Mills Hardware!
Canadian singer-songwriter Rachel Beck’s upcoming record, Stronger Than You Know, is an echoing cry-out from a forest, a chilling dance upon a grave, an arrow shooting straight to the heart of what is, a call to strength. Intimate and close, the six-track EP, recorded at Echo Lake (Halifax, NS), is sonically decorated amidst compelling electronic rhythms and dreamy synth layers. Beck’s vocals float across the vivid, harmony-laden, ethereal soundscape for which she has become known. Stronger Than You Know follows Rachel Beck’s self-titled debut, which garnered two ECMA nominations, two Music PEI Awards, and a SOCAN #1 Award. In addition to hitting #1 on the CBC Music Top 20 Chart in March 2018, Beck’s single "Reckless Heart" was named one of the Top 100 Canadian Songs of 2018 and ranked #4 on the All Canadian Fan Favourites of 2018 by CBC Music. Beck’s tour highlights include performing for Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, appearing twice at the legendary Stan Rogers Folk Festival, opening the 2019 ECMA Gala Awards Show, and playing beautiful festivals and stages from the Rogue Folk Club in Vancouver, BC to the Imperial Theatre in Saint John, NB. Her live show is exposed, empowering, connective.
A child of the East Coast, Alicia Toner writes songs that tell the truth. Her Americana blend of folk, pop and country-rock offers a unique melody-driven sound built around her eloquently emotive voice. Alicia’s debut album I Learned the Hard Way made waves with it’s earnest, heartfelt songwriting and earned her Music PEI’s SOCAN Songwriter of the Year Award as well as numerous other nominations and critical acclaim. Growing up in New Brunswick, Toner was surrounded by music and classically trained on the violin, including a number of years spent with the prestigious New Brunswick Youth Orchestra with whom she played Carnegie Hall. She continued on to study theatre in Toronto and has spent the past 10 years with a successful acting career including shows produced by Mirvish Productions and Soulpepper Theatre. Produced by Tim Chaisson (The East Pointers) and Stuart Cameron (The Heartbroken), her new single “Dangerous Home” delves deeper into the well of truth. Both epic and personal, it signifies an exciting new direction for a truly remarkable artist with a unique ability to convey common stories and emotions to which we can all relate.
