Trevor Alguire

Till Sorrow Begins To Call is the highly anticipated new album from Trevor Alguire. The record takes the listener back through time to when heartfelt words that painted pictures were all that mattered. Backed by the simple rhythm of acoustic guitar and a haunting vocal, or by the sound that only a full band driven by old electric guitars and tube amps could produce one’s senses are left heightened, leaving the listener able to almost smell the tubes cooling down as Alguire and producer Jason Jaknunas exit the studio after the day’s session.

Recorded at Metropolitan Studio in Ottawa, Ontario, Alguire brought together a band of longtime friends and established musicians, including PEI’s own Catherine MacLellan, to craft twelve new songs that now make up this powerful new 4th album.

With Music Nashville News touting “Alguire has depth and breadth found in few artists on the current music scene” one can’t but notice the worldwide respect he is gaining as a powerful introspective lyricist with TC Magazine labeling Alguire as “one of Canada’s finest singer/songwriters with well crafted lyrics and a voice that knows how to deliver them”.

Hailing from small town Ontario in the Ottawa Valley Alguire first drew attention in 2006 with the release of the album As of Yesterday. The album was critically acclaimed in the press with frequent comparisons to artists such as Steve Earl, Tom Petty, Blue Rodeo & Uncle Tupelo. As of Yesterday’s release landed Alguire his first record deal alongside fellow songwriters such as Steve Earle and Buddy Miller which indicates the depth of his musicianship.

Alguire has since gone worldwide with consistent radio play across North America, Europe, and Australia. Two of Alguire’s songs have since been released on Blue Rose Records compilations alongside Gurf Morlix, Steve Earle & Dwight Yoakam. He opened for Martha Wainwright at Ottawa Bluesfest, performed a much coveted showcase at the Contact East Conference and, more recently, opened for Jimmy Rankin as part of this year’s Juno awards.

With deep paths now worn in the dirt worldwide from relentless touring Alguire intends to continue to travel back down those paths endlessly “telling tales of life on the road, his words painting pictures of his country and its people”. He is a great story teller with empathy and emotional depth matched by a warm, sonorous and strong voice, reminiscent of Richard Buckner, Tim Easton and Michael Hall.” - Blue Rose Records
