Shivering Songs host Carleton Stone and Alana Yorke June 13

Category: music 29

Shivering Songs has announced its first show of the summer season featuring Carleton Stone and Alana Yorke at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, June 13.

Two Nova Scotia based songwriters will visit the Charlotte Street Arts Centre for a show in June. Carleton Stone and Alana Yorke’s diversity should make for a wonderful night of music. 
Carleton Stone is an award-winning artist, a songwriter with a growing list of credits, and a founding member of the hugely successful Port Cities. He has recently added producer to his list of accomplishments with both Willie Stratton’s award winning Drugstore Dreamin and his own self produced, Papercut – a collection of sophisticated singer-songwriter pop with well-crafted lyrics and memorable melodies.
An outstanding writer, Carleton has written songs for and with such diverse artists as Ria Mae, Matt Andersen, The East Pointers, Quake, Maggie Andrew, Donovan Woods, Classified, Bobby Bazini, and Neon Dreams.
Carleton has three solo records to his credit, multiple awards, and has toured internationally.
Alana Yorke’s sophomore album Destroyer is an art-pop stunner that represents both a creative triumph and a personal transformation. From its genesis, the album was anchored in the idea of a solitary descent to face the self and come back wholly changed. The universe of Destroyer, created in collaboration with husband and co-producer Ian Bent, is an otherworld where snapshots of Yorke’s psychic landscape are fanned out against a layered musical backdrop coloured by a 21-piece string orchestra, the ultraviolet cool of ’80’s synth-pop, the austere grace and rhythmic cadences of minimalist contemporary composers and the whole-hearted reverberation of anthems that call forth echoes from the unconscious, somewhere between the tidal forces of Kate Bush and Philip Glass.
