Album Notes
Includes top ranking songs at like #3 finalist "98 Points" and critically acclaimed "Eddie Standing Ready" as well as songs from movie and TV soundtracks!

Born in Churchill, Manitoba---northern Canada, where the polar bears run free---Arlene Bishop began writing by mistake, trying to learn other people's songs. Telling stories of love, death and addiction, her unique voice warms the coldest heart. Arlene has released three CDs so far, all of which have received critcal acclaim and limited exposure on radio. On television and film soundtracks, however, Arlene's music has been widely heard (the wonderful Allan Moyle-directed "New Waterford Girl", the Rob Lowe-HBO feature "First Degree", the Nastassia Kinski/Stephen Baldwin feature "Say Nothing", the series "Madison", the Fred Ward/Christopher Plummer feature "Full Disclosure"). Funny, charming and highly respected in her hometown of Toronto, Arlene has opened for artists as diverse as Ani DiFranco, Barenaked Ladies, Bruce Cockburn and the Beach Boys. Releasing "Pinky" in 1996, Arlene then released "Snarky Girlpop" in spring of 2000. Arlene then recorded with co-producers Jeremy Darby and Blair Packham to make the third album, called "Cut A Man's Heart Out". It was released to acclaim in Canada and abroad.

Produced by Blair Packham

I thought it was a 4-star scale
I thought it was a 4-star scale, so make that 4 out of 5.

Hauntinly beautiful songs
At first listen, Arlene Bishop's voice will reach down and tug at your soul a little. With a CD title like "Snarky Girlypop," one isn't expecting such a raspy, powerful, haunting voice. Think Marianne Faithful crossed with Buffy Ste. Marie.
The first song on the CD, Envy, has a viral hook that will have you singing it for days. 98 Points is also a thoughtful, introspective gem. This CD is perfect for the days when you want to escape the chaos around you; plug your earbuds into your computer and feel the music of Arlene Bishop.

Richard Summerbell

I always like Arlene's music when I saw her and the band at events in Toronto, but that this CD would be quite such a tour de force exceeded my expectations. The first track in particular should be on the radio everywhere. The CD is clever, mature, well done, and musically hot throughout. Snarky don't get better than this!

Dave Kanter, quirkily intelligent writer

...constructively outspoken creativity...
From Canada, where politically moderate but personally blunt attitudes are plentiful, I expected constructively outspoken creativity, and I was not disappointed. If I weren't a perfectionist, I'd give this CD 4 stars instead of 3, and the live comedic monologue at the end is a big bonus.
