BIG WHITE CLOUD RECORDS PRESENTS…
KACY & CLAYTON, YARROW (from the Deep Dark Woods)
w special guest SHUYLER JANSEN
Shuyler Jansen will accompany both bands on bass guitar and be opening the evening of music. Jansen recently released his 4th solo album ‘The Long Shadow’ to critical acclaim.
ON ‘THE LONG SHADOW’…
“Shuyler Jansen melds his disparate influences into a cohesive whole, treading unlikely common ground in the sounds of modern Americana, Kraftwerk synth, fuzz bomb psych-rock, and lush Pet Sounds arrangement and vocal harmony.”
Recently signing with New West Records in US, Kacy & Clayton embark on their first Ontario/Quebec Canadian tour since ‘Strange Country’ was released in Canada in November 2015.
ON ‘STRANGE COUNTRY’…
“Kacy has a truly gorgeous voice, one that evokes memories of Sandy Denny, while Clayton is a very fluent player on acoustic, electric, 12-string and steel guitar.”
NEW CANADIAN MUSIC
With a new album already recorded and coming from Six Shooter Records later this year, Yarrow, the new project from the Deep Dark Woods Ryan Boldt is sure to fill the massive void the DDW’s left in their wake.
ON ‘BROADSIDE BALLADS’…
“This understated and haunting album is – no more, no less – a collection of Boldt’s renditions of some of the traditional North American and British folk songs he holds so dear.”

I thought that it might be appropriately droll if I emancipated the pre-order for my new album ‘The Long Shadow’ on Canada’s beloved BBQ jamboree…Labour Day; for some thick reason I spent an hour reading about our national holiday, and the paradox is, Canada is just a silhouette of what “Labour Day” initially stood for (unions seeking a 54 hour work week instead of 58hrs). The middle class is nonexistent, unions are shriveled and most of my peers work far longer than 54 hrs a week in order to make it work for his or her situation(s). Phil Ochs is rolling in his grave.
White (Canadians) people have it very cushy compared to other earthlings, therefore complacency sets in, rampaging on social media, hacking, BBQ’s, eco-terrorism (?) and petition signing have replaced impassioned protesting, rioting, letter writing, kidnappings and violent sabotage. I shake my head, trying to figure out how not to be a useless drone. I can swing a hammer, cook for my wife and kids, drive for days on end, endorse an unsung album or film, but after 40 years of plying so many trades the thing I know best is making albums, they can boost you up when you’re damaged or they can damage your hearing. Some people sell farming equipment, others remove kidney stones, we all have something to flog. Please purchase a version of this album when you can. Love Shuyler.
Please ask your local record retailer to order the LP or Digipak from Outside Music Distribution
