We are so pleased to finally announce details of They Promised You Mercy, the fourth Six Shooter Records album from Amelia Curran, songwriter extraordinaire and pride of Newfoundland. They Promised You Mercy will be out on November 4, 2014. We decided to celebrate the songwriting on They Promised You Mercy by first sharing the complete album lyrics (music will come soon!), which you can read HERE.
On They Promised You Mercy, Amelia’s knife-sharp lyrics find peace and even cheerfulness amidst lush layers provided by award-winning producer Michael Phillip Wojewoda’s nuanced studio vision. The album is a poised, focused and consummate work that showcases Amelia’s singular songwriting talent. They Promised You Mercy raises the lyrical bar yet again with its unrivalled eloquence.
They Promised You Mercy heralds an impressive list of accomplished Canadian players that include guitarist Martin Tielli of the Rheostatics who also painted the portrait for the albums cover artwork, lap steel guitarist Christine Bougie (Bahamas), trombonist William Carn (Elton John), saxophonist Gene Hardy (Michael Bublé), pianist Aaron Davis (Holly Cole Trio), guitarist Dean Drouillard (Sarah Harmer) and drummer Joshua Van Tassel (Great Lake Swimmers).
Six Shooter Records is proud to release They Promised You Mercy on November 4, 2014.
