ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“…slyly intricate with ethereal touches against a more traditional acoustic folk backdrop…” — Music Morsels (February 2016); referring to Ambrose Psychic

Since 2010, Trevor Sloan has been releasing albums under the name Phono d’enfant. He offers a fresh take on the singer-songwriter tradition, combining his fascination with old keyboards and sounds with acoustic instruments and intimate vocals. His music has been described as “psychedelic Americana.” Although for the most part he remains in the shadows of the Canadian music scene, his song “The Quyon River” was regularly featured on the CBC Radio 2 show The Signal. His music has been used in film and TV, including a song on the show, The Listener and he was nominated for the Louis Applebaum Composers Award in 2014.

Whether exploring historical settings, everyday moments or memories of childhood, the songs on Ambrose Psychic are steeped in nostalgia. The lyrics evoke images of road trips, street pigeons, balloon men, trains and faces at the public pool. The album title was inspired by the name of a race horse and the story of Ambrose Small, who went missing in 1919 and spurred an investigation (still unsolved) aided by psychics. The song “The City” is named after the first horse-drawn cab service in Toronto, started by Thornton Blackburn, who escaped slavery in Kentucky via the underground railway. These colorful stories and characters – past, present, real and imagined – are at the heart of Ambrose Psychic.
