Gathering Sparks CD Release
$25 Advance / $30 Door
You will come to listen, and walk away singing. GATHERING SPARKS is the graceful collision of Eve Goldberg and Jane Lewis – musical friends who blend tight harmonies, finely crafted songs, and a love of participatory singing to create an intimate and uplifting experience.
Our performance on October 3, is a release and celebration of their new album “All That’s Real” – a fresh collection of songs that mix transcendent vocals, stellar musicianship on guitar, keyboard, and ukulele, and compelling stories into a potent balm for troubled times.
Writing together for the first time, Eve & Jane combined their love of word play, strong melodies, and harmony singing to create 11 new songs (plus one cover of a Pete Townshend classic) that will take you on a journey from hopeful, to thoughtful, to joyful and back again.
The CD release show will feature producer Jeff Bird (Cowboy Junkies), drummer/percussionist Cheryl Prashker (RUNA), and other guest musicians TBA.
ABOUT THE DUO
With an infectious mix of styles and compelling vocal blend, Gathering Sparks has made waves from their inception. Their debut 6-song CD was nominated for a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, and they quickly became an audience favourite. Whether they are belting it out a capella style, tugging on your heartstrings with a folky original, crooning a jazzy swing tune, or getting into the spirit with a gospel-inflected singalong, Gathering Sparks performances make fans out of listeners with their stellar harmonies and fine musicianship.
EVE GOLDBERG has lifted audiences across North America with her heartfelt and insightful songs and solid instrumental work. Her fluid vocals embrace all the styles she loves—folk, blues, country, bluegrass, old time, and jazz—with equal affection and mastery.
JANE LEWIS has followed her love of words from the printing press to the spotlight with soul-bending lyrics, transcendent compositions, and crystal clear vocals. Her thoughtful piano and accordion playing, mastery of harmony, and upbeat presence add a sparkle to any stage.
