For Immediate Release:
March 11, 2014
Ottawa, ON - Singer/songwriter Trevor Alguire's 5th studio album release, 'Miles Away', is about as organic as they come. Produced by Jason Jakunas at Metropolitan Studios in Ottawa, the album was recorded live off the floor with minimal additional instrumentation in order to try to capture the initimacy of Alguire's live performance. 'Miles Away' will be released independently on April 22nd and to celebrate, Alguire will kick-off a string of Canadian Tour dates with an Album Release Show at The Avalon Studio in Ottawa on April 26th.
Hailing from small town Ontario in the Ottawa Valley, Trevor Alguire first drew attention in 2006 with the release of the album 'As of Yesterday'. The album was critically acclaimed with frequent comparisons to artists such as Steve Earle, Tom Petty and Blue Rodeo. Alguire's reputation grew with the release of 3 more albums and an international tour schedule that keeps him on the road much of the time. His already strong national & European presence continues to grow and he is beginning to find strong support in the U.S. His previous release ‘Now Before Us’, found itself comfortably at home among the Top 40 on the Americana Charts throughout the U.S. and top 10 on the Euro-Americana charts. He also held a top 10 spot on several campus radio stations across Canada and was Top 10 on the Canadian Roots Radio Airplay Chart.
The recording of 'Miles Away' was an ambitious one with Trevor Alguire entering into the recording process much differently than his last 4 albums. "We had the preset intention of capturing the feel and flow of each song more naturally," said Alguire. "I opted to not use a click track and let each live performance take each song in its own natural direction. With several practice sessions as a band we would hammer out 8 of the eleven songs to then hit the studio and record each song live off the floor. I feel that it really has set this album in it's own space and captured the feel and flow of each song more naturally."
Trevor Alguire is no stranger to the road and spends much of his time playing tour dates in Canada and beyond, winning over fans one live show at a time. He's shared stages with Jimmy Rankin, Danny Michel, Romi Mayes, Martha Wainwright, Old Man Luedecke, Leeroy Stagger and many other great Canadian acts. Before kicking off the Canadian Tour dates in Ottawa on April 26th, Alguire will be heading to Europe for dates in Germany and the Netherlands. For a full list of tour dates see below. Trevor Alguire's 5th album 'Miles Away' will be available on iTunes & other fine digital retailers on April 22nd. The album will also be available for purchase on vinyl and CD at all Trevor Alguire live shows and online. For the most up-to-date tour listings, please visit: www.trevoralguire.com
