There's a lot of folky acoustic goodness in Piper and Carson, the latest album from Hamilton's Piper Hayes. The Hammertown songwriter teamed up with her partner Carson Ritcey-Thorpe and recorded the album live off the floor. The relaxed atmosphere gives the songs room to breathe and express themselves.
It's also a bit of a concept album as the tunes depict a full day from beginning to end. The storytelling is incredible featuring a tribute to her late mother, protest songs and more. The duo manage to tell their tale and create a beautiful, ethereal, organic soundscape.
Helping them along is Chris Bartos (producer, multiple instruments), Kevin Neal (pedal steel) and Leah Ritcey-Thorpe (backup vocals).
You can get this magical album from the online shop or Piper's Bandcamp page. Hamilton music shops Cheapies and Dr. Disc also carry it. It's also available through iTunes and cdbaby.
