About Jordan Klassen:

Jordan Klassen’s seventh album, Glossolalia, which was released in 2022 and recorded during the pandemic without a large studio or much fuss, could probably best be described as a blessing in disguise. The singer songwriter and producer from Vancouver mostly withdrew in order to write and record, composing the album with mostly vocals and guitar, creating a subtly blossoming collection of songs that perhaps nailed his “fairy folk for troubled times” approach better than ever before. Klassen seemingly tapped into a new creative well, as Glossolalia was only the first half of the material written and recorded in this period. “Cocoon” is the first taste from this forthcoming sisterly companion. More details and new music are to follow in the weeks ahead…



About David Vertesi:

Over 15 years, David Vertesi has been a collaborator with some of Canada’s most exciting indie-rock projects as a performer, writer, and producer. This includes his own band, Hey Ocean!, plus Shad, Dear Rouge, Hannah Georgas, Said the Whale, Haley Blais, Noble Son, and more.

In his solo work, however, Vertesi emerges centre-stage as a close-to-the-chest storyteller exploring themes of confusion, loneliness, instability, death, and existential ennui. He interrogates these somber questions with tender poetry and a sense of humour. His growling inimitable baritone voice deepens his playful work and further darkens his more haunted questions, drawing comparisons to names like Leonard Cohen, The National, Nick Cave, and Bill Callahan. It's easy to see how Vertesi has emerged from his long-time collaborative role into a fully formed front-man of his own musical expression.
