Between the Shadows and the Light - Doug Edmond


Between is the operative word in that title. Singer-pianist Edmond's album finds him betwixt a number of genres and influences. While his raspy pipes and folksy delivery suggest he's spent quality time with Dylan's catalogue (the cover of It's All Over Now, Baby Blue helps, too), some jazzy pop and burbling guitars move things in a Knopfleresque direction -- while the mellow saxophone and soulful elements take a detour to Van Morrison's realm. Rather than being neither here nor there, Edmond makes Between seem like the right place.

Songwriter, pianist and vocalist Doug Edmond and the band returned to Winnipeg’s Park Theatre stage to a capacity crowd to release the new CD “Between the Shadows and the Light” on Oct 3, 2009. The band committed to returning to the Park after their sold out show at the Park on April 19, 2008. The April gig was just prior to the band’s successful showcase performance in Nashville last May!

Doug plays with true emotion and writes intelligent lyrics. During live performances Doug and the band (Mitch Dorge on drums, Rubin Kantorovich on guitars, Alasdair Dunlop on bass and Bill Spornitz on sax) slide easily from extremely personal heartfelt ballads to lively jazz roots numbers. Mitch Dorge, of Crash Test Dummies fame, produced the CD. Mitch brings the best out of all artists who have had the pleasure to work with him in the studio. His exceptional drumming skills bring the right rhythmic texture to all of the band’s performances. Bill Spornitz continues to be one of Winnipeg’s finest sax players while Rubin Kantorovich provides rich textured guitar. Alasdair Dunlop continues to inspire all who have the opportunity to witness his live performance. The band continues to perform in and around Winnipeg to capacity crowds and is currently arranging their upcoming summer tour. Doug draws from a diverse genre of jazz, folk and blues. Have a listen to Doug’s sound on the CD or visit his web site to appreciate the band’s jazz/roots sound.

Doug has been writing, producing and performing his own material for more time then he can remember. The band is very proud of the work they have done on CD "Between the Shadows and the Light. The band is currently planning a western Canadian tour as part of 2010 festival season. Doug has written a fair number of new tunes which will be recorded in the near future for the next album. We hope you like the sound enough to get out of your chair and come out to one to one of the upcoming gigs.
