ON THE ROAD THIS FALL WITH
DONOVAN WOODS 

 

Toronto, ON – October 14, 2016 – Described in Guitarist magazine as an “exceptional singer, [an] arresting and inventive guitarist,” and a “gifted songwriter,” Joey Landreth, the 29-year-old frontman of the Bros. Landreth, is ready to broaden his songwriting catalogue with a new solo project. On January 27, 2017, Cadence Music is set to release Joey Landreth’s debut EP, Whiskey. Recorded in his hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba at the famed Stereobus Recording (Burton Cummings, Fred Penner, and the Crash Test Dummies), Joey has created a stunning new EP including epic lead track, Still Feel Gone. Stream or buy Still Feel Gone now at: https://CadenceMusic.lnk.to/JoeyLandrethPR. He is currently test driving the new EP on a fall tour with fellow Canadian singer-songwriter Donovan Woods. Full list of dates are available below and at: www.joeylandreth.com.

 

“Still Feel Gone is your classic “love and the road” story with a twist. First, in the verses it addresses the pressures and challenges that come with being a traveller. But in the pre-chorus and chorus it hones in on the period of time right after a long trip comes to an end. There’s always a strange “re-entry” period where home doesn’t quite feel like home yet and your loved ones feel like strangers.” – Joey Landreth

 

Produced by Murray Pulver and masterfully engineered by Paul Yee, Whiskey is a bit of a departure from Joey’s previous releases with the Bros. Landreth; with its heavier emphasis on Joey’s guitar playing (the source of his exploding reputation among guitar-player circles), and with songs reflecting where Joey comes from as an individual, this solo album has given Joey the freedom to explore new sounds and approaches to his music. He teamed up with Winnipeg photographer Mike Latschislaw to create a stunning EPK – sneak peek a behind the scenes to the making of his debut solo record here: http://bit.ly/JoeyLandrethEPK.

 

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Joey grew up surrounded by the music of his father, Wally Landreth, as well as John Hiatt, Donald Fagen, John Schofield, Little Feat, Lyle Lovett, and Bonnie Riatt, all having influenced his own work as a musician. Joey’s first touring gig was at the age of 16, and he fondly recalls how “nurturing” and “inclusive” the Winnipeg music scene was and still is today. It was not until he was 27 that he suggested to his brother David that they start playing together. Formed in Winnipeg in 2013, the Bros. Landreth is made up of Joey (guitarist, lead singer, and primary songwriter), his brother David (bassist), Ariel Posen (guitarist), and Ryan Voth (drummer) – both David and Ryan play on Joey’s new solo album. The Bros. Landreth’s debut album Let It Lie (for which they received a Juno Award in 2015 for best “Roots & Traditional Album of the Year”) was released independently in Canada in 2013 and was re-released in 2015 with two new tracks after the band signed a record deal with Slate Creek Records in Nashville in 2014.
