In the terrestrial sphere, "Arthur" has its world premiere on CBC Radio's "On the Go" program. Show Host Ted Blades promises to carry things "Up to the Mountain" next.
Blogger "Muruch" is helping Allison Crowe celebrate the music release, and 10th anniversary of Rubenesque Records Ltd. - with the online premiere of Allison's two newest song recordings. And, as a treat for the next couple of weeks, the music is a gift from Muruch
Over at "1 Heck of a Guy" the two song videos make their debut along with this explanation: "Allison Crowe has often been featured on this site, in part for her gorgeous voice and in part for her exquisite songwriting."
Both of those elements, DrHeck, says, are on display in this new release:
"Arthur" - Playing her vintage upright-grand piano, at home in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada, Allison Crowe sings of love weighed through life and time.
"Up to the Mountain (MLK Song)" - Already a lover of American singer-songwriter Patty Griffin, Allison Crowe's introduction to this Griffin tune came from Canadian rock and soul musician Bob Benvenuti when
the two Canucks performed at a Christmas "Tidings" concert together. Crowe brings it on home with guitar and vocals - performing as her own Jordanaires for back-up.
Rubenesque Records Ltd., Canada's most independently successful music label, celebrates its tenth anniversary with this characteristically passionate performance pairing.
Here, above, is “Arthur” - as it's heard on the new release.
NB The single version of "Up to the Mountain" is on guitar. We're fortunate to also have this video of a piano performance - Allison live-in-the-studio - "Out of the Fog" in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada.
