Album Notes
Songwriter, pianist and vocalist Doug Edmond and the band return to the Park Theatre stage after a SOLD OUT show April, 2009 to release the CD – Between the Shadows and the Light on Oct 3rd, 2009. Doug plays with true emotion and writes intelligent lyrics. During live performances Doug and the band (Mitch Dorge on drums, Rubin Kantorovich on guitar, Alasdair Dunlop on bass and Bill Spornitz on sax) slide easily from extremely personal heartfelt ballads to lively uplifting numbers. Doug draws from an appreciation of a diverse genre of folk, jazz and blues. (Park Theatre promotions web site)

Winnipeg Sun Review

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

Liner Notes for "Between the Shadows and the Light"

First and foremost I want to thank you for listening! The inspiration to create a song comes from within but it is the live symbiotic reaction from one’s audience that gives a song a life beyond the writer’s initial intent.

A number of years ago I was informed that a gig had been arranged for me to perform at a small Academy Road eatery by my partner Julie Walsh. Even though I have always played, wrote and recorded my material I initially resisted the idea. That little push was the beginning of a passion to perform and record.

Some of these tunes were written years ago while others were written just prior to going into the studio (December/January, 2007/08). The songs wouldn’t be what they are without the creative juices, passion, friendship and support of Mitch Dorge (Drums, Producer), Alasdair Dunlop (Bass) and Rubin Kantorovich (Guitars). Each has taught me more then I could ever image about performing, writing and recording.

Mitch Dorge brings the best out of all artists who have had the pleasure to work with him the studio. His exceptional drumming skills bring the right rhythmic texture to each song. His willingness to share his musical knowledge is beyond reproach.

I met Alasdair Dunlop through his work for Jazz Winnipeg, an organization close and dear to my heart. His steady and insightful playing continues to expand and impress everyone who has witnessed his live performances. Rubin, a long time friend of Mitch’s came out one night and has been adding his licks to these tunes ever since. Rube is always willing share his knowledge which is reflected in the variety of guitar work you will find on these recordings. Mitch has ensured that each tune has its own unique and fresh sound in some cases with the help of other artists especially Lindsey White on backup vocals.

I want to also express deep gratitude to the following people who gave their time and energy to this project – Arnel Jajalla for his video, photos and live recording, Stu Reid for masterful artwork, Julie Walsh for her love and unquestioning support and my children Kate and Tom for letting their Dad play.

Experience of a Lifetime
Upon hearing Doug Edmond's "Between the Shadows and the Light" I was reminded of Norah Jones grammy winning "Come Away with Me" CD of a few years back. It has the atmosphere of accomplished musicians playing together in a studio "jamming" with the recorder running. It comes across as a pure untarnished recording. The songs are a collection from what seems to be a lifetime of experiences, heartfelt examinations, a glean of those famous "life lessons", from the ups and downs of a relationship, memories of childhood, and events of a memorable life.

The songs are well crafted with a fine melodic wallop that will leave you breathless. The hauntingly beautiful "Shadows on my Heart", captures a mood and paints vivid pictures in your mind. The underrated "See your Face" has that instantly memorable piano hook that will be unforgettable to the listener. "Treat me like a Dog" an infectiously melodic number that draws the listener to every word reminiscent of "My Baby Just Cares for Me" by Nina Simone

Between the Shadows and the Light is a place you want to visit often.
