Roxanne Potvin Announces 2016 East Coast Dates, bringing new album For Dreaming to Fredericton, Charlottetown, and Halifax!
Following a five year hiatus Montreal-based guitarist and singer/songwriter Roxanne Potvin is set to begin her 2016 East Coast Tour with guitarist/lapsteel extraordinaire Christine Bougie. Kicking off the tour on May 26th Roxanne will be in New Brunswick for shows at Living Roots Music Festival and Creek View Restaurant. She will then head to Prince Edward Island for shows at Barnone Brewery and Baba’s Lounge, followed by a return to New Brunswick for a show at Plan b. The tour will end in Nova Scotia with shows at Port Medway Pub, The Company House, Patchworks House Concerts, and finally Lift the Wind Concert Series on June 5th.
Roxanne Potvin’s latest album, For Dreaming, sees the Quebec singer/songwriter return with a highly personal and deeply affecting collection of songs after a five-year break from recording. The hiatus was a period of experimentation and study for Potvin, resulting in For Dreaming building upon the quiet intensity displayed on several tracks from her 2011 album Play. The intimacy imbued in the heart-wrenching title track, as well as “Prairie Sunrise,” “I Thought I’d Miss You” and “In Your Sleep” is a direct reflection of Potvin’s vision, and overall For Dreaming brilliantly captures the hidden meanings in life’s simplest moments. After receiving her first significant attention with her 2006 Colin Linden-produced album The Way It Feels, which earned a JUNO nomination, Potvin went on to experiment with new sounds on her subsequent albums No Love For The Poisonous, produced by Dave MacKinnon of alt-folk outfit FemBots, and Play, recorded in Vancouver with producer Steve Dawson. For Dreaming now opens a new chapter for Potvin as a singer/songwriter with pop smarts, undeniable soul, and a ceaseless drive to keep pushing herself in uncharted directions.
