"It is rare to find an artist who manages to encapsulate their life so well within their music, and where the music so well encapsulates the artist. The album is a series of soft confessions, thoughtfully rendered, with lyrics sometimes simple and sometimes complex-this being the signature of her songwriting; simple words to convey the seemingly simple nature of life on the surface, while alluding always to the complex nature of everything beneath it." Scene Magazine
Miles Of Prairie was recorded and mixed at Slaughterhouse 754, in Toronto’s east end, by Mitch Girio. Girio also played upright bass, piano and organ on the album. Golden, BC’s Gord Light also helped to flesh out the songs on guitar, banjitar and mandolin. Rounding out the band on percussion was Adam Warner (Jill Barber, Alejandra Ribera, Royal Wood). Sandra Fitzsimmons and Christina Foster (Lady Racers) provide the sweet vocal harmonies.
Miles of Prairie is a collection of songs written over the last decade, dealing with loss, loneliness and betrayal. The title track “Miles of Prairie,” is a gentle acoustic meditation upon these themes.
