Fredericton roots artist shares three new tracks from his forthcoming debut album.
Colin Fowlie continues to tease his fan base with the upcoming release of Amusement Park, the second EP of new material from his forthcoming full-length debut set for release in late winter or early spring.
Amusement Park finds Fowlie and his band collaborating with Kill Chicago’s Dillon Anthony, who contributes pedal steel on the opening track, Sanctuary. Vocalist Michelle Morrison, who first appeared on Fowlie’s previous EP Harmony (2018), is back for a second song. To date, both her contributions have involved singing harmonies while also, in a way, acting or playing a character role in one of Fowlie’s imaginary worlds. Both her contributions musically and her place within the storyline of Fowlie’s songs have been highlights so far.
Fowlie is a gifted storyteller. His songs follow traditional narrative arcs and usually include a few unexpected twists along the way. And while he is often singing about tragedy or heartbreak or some other unfortunate life circumstance, the comfort in his voice helps make any fate seem completely manageable.
All three songs on this EP benefit greatly from the work of Jarret Meadows (bass), James Rooney (drums) and lead guitarist Steve Hubbard.
Amusement Park will officially be released February 22, 2019.
