MORE ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM -
‘The Canoe’ is Carrie Tree's third album, released on 26th April 2019, produced by Markus Sieber (known for his ambient instrumental recordings as Aukai).
Working remotely across the seas between Colorado, Mexico, and the UK over the last year and completing the project together in Iceland, Carrie and producer Markus Sieber gathered international artists from Mexico, Chile, Venezuela, UK, France, Germany and Spain to create a palette of intimate emotive soundscapes.
The album title reflects the symbolic and metaphorical significance of canoes and journeys taken on water,
“In many traditions there is the idea that we are born on a canoe (via the mother’s body) and when we die, we leave on one too...”
“A lot of the songs have birth, death, water, home and travel as their central themes, so the idea of a canoe felt like a beautiful symbol for that." One of the songs, ‘Honey Soup’, is about the body as a vessel, as a home in life, while the title track is about the gateway, fragility and power of birth"
“..a reminder for us to reconnect with ourselves, the human race and nature." - Photogroupie
“…delivered and presented in a way that suggests magic is at work here” - 17 Seconds
