Congratulations to Six Shooter’s newest artist, Del Barber, who released his latest, Headwaters, to hot reviews across the country and a beautiful performance on CBC Q. He’s tearing up the road from coast to coast on a tour with Old Man Luedecke, after which he’ll be playing loads more dates and festivals in the summer months. Check tour dates for a chance to see him live.
I know this is unrelated, but I think my favourite Spanish word might be Abogado. I think it’s fun to say, and I kind of like picturing lawyers being made into guacamole. Ok, carry on.
It is no secret that we at Six Shooter Records are suckers for great songwriters. Oh wait, that was supposed to be a secret, damn! The Katniss is out of the bag! Well, since we’ve spilled the beans on the great-songwriter-suckerage, we might as well divulge that we also love all things Winnipeg. The newest addition to the Six Shooter roster happens to be both of these things (great songwriter and Winnipegatobian), so it should come as no surprise that the talented Del Barber now calls our label home.
We’re very proud to be releasing Del’s third album, Headwaters, a set of prairie parables that lead through finely crafted confessionals and twang-kissed tales of desires lived, left and lost. Jeez, all those alliterations totally twisted my tongue! Watch for it on May 1. Del tours Canada from coast to coast with Old Man Luedecke in May — check da tour dates for details, dude.
