Album Notes
Recorded between May 2011 and January 2012, the songs for Fire Poems really began to take shape in February 2011, when the Loons welcomed a new drummer
and added a violin player. A couple months later, the band headed to Lincoln County Social Club in Toronto to lay down the bed tracks for the album. After a solid week at LCSC, the band began to make multiple trips to producer James Bunton’s home studio in Toronto to finish the tracking. After months of tracking and sending mixes back and forth with Bunton, the band was ready to master the record. In January 2012, they took it to Harris Newman in Montreal to be mastered at Grey Market Mastering.

The moderate success of Loon Choir’s first record, ‘Expansion Forces’, coupled with the band winning some financial support through Ottawa radio station Live 88.5’s annual Big Money Shot, allowed the band the luxury of taking their time and making use of great facilities. Consequentially, the sonic layers on Fire Poems are rich with texture while the lead hooks and vocals are often massive in scope. The inclusion of spoken word poetry on the record was a natural progression for Loon Choir and main singer-songwriter, Derek Atkinson. The songs on Fire Poems cover a wide variety of sounds, genres and intensity levels and yet still all fit together as a cohesive unit.
