Hitting a number of best-of lists (such as Best Canadian Album in Popmatters, which we all know really means Best Album Everrrrr) and rave reviews in international publications such as Uncut, American Songwriter, and a host of others (including an interesting blog that actually does “rave reviews”, ie. they review records while at a RAVE! “Oontz oontz oontz oontz, this record gets 5 glow sticks out of 5, oontz oontz oontz”), Whitehorse are proving quickly that their new album “The Fate Of The World Depends On This Kiss” is certified awesome. Following our proven strategy of global conquerage, this means that we are finally ready to launch said full length recording of wonderful tunes in the glorious new world of America. Our friends living south of the border can now officially see/hear what all the fuss and ‘horse-play is about!
Jenn Grant‘s new album “The Beautiful Wild” is also being released Stateside this week, on the very fine Ba Da Bing! Records. She plans on celebrating by wearing a pair of star spangled jammer pants for a month straight following her US release date, both in patriotic solidarity with her American fans, and in the name of glorious comfort. Jenn is on tour now with Erin McKeown and getting added at tastemaker stations like KEXP and rave reviews from tastemaker publications like No Depression (They are real buds. Get it? Tastemakers? Buds? Tongue joke?), so we are off to a beautifully wild start.
Watch Jenn Grant’s video for I’ve Got Your Fire on MTV Hive here:
Both Whitehorse and Jenn Grant were touted in the Boston Globe earlier this month in the Top Ten Artists to Watch in 2013. We took this to mean that they are up to some shady business, so rest assured, we are keeping a very close eye on their activities!

A special holiday gift from Jenn Grant. Xoxo
I have certainly been known to wax poetic about the virtues of glorious vinyl, and, well, here I go again. There is really no format as awesome and tangible as a big ol’ 12” record. I love the big artwork, the smell of a freshly cracked gatefold, and the tactile experience of putting a record needle into a groove. I’m pleased as punch that turntables are easily and readily available again, it truly fills me with holiday glee (or whatever this feeling is… could be the pickled okra) to see my favorite format thriving. Given all this mushy luv for wax, you can be sure that we keep our selection of new Six Shooter vinyl current, with Jenn Grant‘s “The Beautiful Wild” and Whitehorse‘s “The Fate of the World Depends on this Kiss” available now!! To convince you about how serious we are about vinyl, and also how much we love bundles, we have more artist bundles in our specials section for both Jenn Grant and Whitehorse — pick up a copy of each of their vinyl offerings at the low price of 2 for $30. Records look great wrapped up under a Christmas tree, and you can watch as your lucky gift recipient’s face turns from fake smile to real smile when they realize it’s not a calendar!
Jenn Grant‘s fourth album ‘The Beautiful Wild’ released September 25, 2012 on Six Shooter Records.
New video for In The Belly Of A Dragon, from Jenn Grant’s The Beautiful Wild, out September 25th, 2012. Made by Jenn Grant on her iPhone.
The honeymoon continues for East Coast nightingale Jenn Grant, who is set to release her third album on Six Shooter Records on September 25, 2012. With The Beautiful Wild, Jenn follows love’s twisted, tangled path deep into the heart’s jungle. The new record is about finding the courage to lose oneself in the wilderness, in all of its savage and sublime experiences.
The dense, exotic sounds of The Beautiful Wild depart from the giddy blush of Honeymoon Punch, Jenn Grant’s Juno Nominated and Polaris Long Listed previous album. There is a mature solemnity to be found that creates a new intimacy and immediacy with the listener. Jenn Grant’s intuitive ability to express emotion has helped to define her as one of Canada’s premiere vocalists; even in the darkest corners of the wilderness, her prismatic, iridescent voice continues to sparkle, dancing over adventurous new layers that include harp, flute and sitar.
Jenn Grant is a lively member of a thriving East Coast artist community. The Beautiful Wild features many notable locals, including Old Man Luedecke, Rose Cousins, Erin Costello, Kinley Dowling, David Christiansen and the Halifax Boys’ Honour Choir.
Jenn Grant will tour with Kathleen Edwards and as a co-bill with Cuff The Duke this Fall, 2012. In between Canadian dates, Jenn will be touring in Australia, Germany and Japan.
Lose yourself in The Beautiful Wild, out on Six Shooter Records on September 25, 2012.
Six Shooter artists are confirmed for several milestone shows in Toronto, including Whitehorse’s debut as headliners at Massey freakin’ Hall (March 2, 2013). As well, Jenn Grant performs with Cuff The Duke (November 24) and Danny Michel with Quique Escamilla (December 8), both on the dreamscape stage of the Winter Garden Theatre (the coolest garden around… get it?).
All of our artists will be touring heavily in the coming year, which is awesome, ‘cause we are sick of them leaving all of their gear in our office. Check out the tour dates section for details on shows near you.
I’ve only recently realized that playing the popular downtown pedestrian / public transit game of “Bluetooth or crazy” actually kind of sucks. Either way I am decidedly non-stoked on the outcome. It’s kind of like playing “dog fart or human fart” (a game I never want to play), you are in for a stinky no matter what.
A much better game is “Whitehorse or Jenn Grant”, since a) it’s easy, they sound different, and b) either way you win!! Both artists are putting finishing touches on their respective near-complete new albums, and will both be released this summer. Have I mentioned how much I love summer? Amelia Curran is also in the middle of a new record, which we hope will be released in the fall (um, have I mentioned how much I love fall? Not as much as summer, but Amelia’s album will still rule). And the Good Lovelies just recorded a live album at Revolution Recording — keep your ears tuned.
Jenn brings spring to Moncton, NB! That’s right, she bought the city their very own Slinky! The always sunny (and slinky) Honeymoon Punch has 4 nominations at this year’s ECMAs; Album of the Year, Rock Recording of the Year, Song of the Year (“Getcha Good”), and Entertainer of the Year. Producer and graphic magic man Daniel Ledwell is also nominated for Audio Professional and Graphic/ Media Artist of the Year (they didn’t have an award for the “magic man” part, but we figure if he wins he can pull a bunny out of a hat or saw Jenn in half or something and maybe get on some additional ad hoc award steez).
Catch Jenn performing live on Q’s special ECMA broadcast on Friday morning, and also on an ECMA edition of Shift presented by the CBC on Friday afternoon. Moncton locals have the chance to catch one of two performances on Saturday April 14 at the Empress Theatre. See tour dates for complete information.
Oh, and for all you Monctonians (Monctonites? Monks?), also be sure to catch Henry Wagons, who is traveling all the way from Australia for the festival.
Jenn is confirmed for a CMW appearance at Toronto’s Mod Club on Thursday, March 22 with Young Rival and Mise En Scene (9pm). The show will be full band and will include new material from an album scheduled for release in Summer 2012.
Jenn is one of three Six Shooters to add a Juno nomination to the list of achievements this year. Honeymoon Punch is in fine company in the Adult Alternative category alongside Feist, Jim Cuddy, Ron Sexsmith, and Cuff The Duke. Yay Jenn!
More congrats to Jenn on her multiple East Coast Music Awards nominations! This time around, Jenn has been nominated for four: Album of the Year, Rock Recording of the Year, Song of the Year (“Getcha Good”), and Entertainer of the Year. Also, Honeymoon Punch producer (and co-star of the new video) Daniel Ledwell received two nominations for Audio Professional and Graphic/Media Artist of the Year (which includes the album art for Honeymoon Punch).
