Album Release Party On November 23rd At The Media Club
For Immediate Release:
November 1st, 2013
(Vancouver, BC) - Vancouver-based electronic duo Onelight will be independently releasing their self-titled debut album on Tuesday, November 26th and will celebrate with an Album Release Party at the Media Club (695 Cambie St.) on Saturday, November 23rd. Also on the bill for the Release Party are: Mark Hjorthy (DJ Set) and Vebrilli Sound.
Onelight is singer Amy Usher and drummer/producer Hamish Thomson. Originally from Toronto, Amy has lived a life traveling the world, chronicling her journey through poetry and song. Her voice and lyrics are grounded in imagery, emotion and spirit. Hamish is a west coast daydreamer, multi-instrumentalist and producer who created 3 albums as The Hermit for Nettwerk Records. During this time, he collected awards for “Favourite Electronica Artist” at CMW and a #1 chart placing on Bravo TV’s Countdown. Hamish has collaborated with a diverse pool of musicians and producers including Martina Sorbara (Dragonette), Frazey Ford (Be Good Tanyas), and CR Avery.
Onelight was born almost by surprise when Hamish and Amy met up one rainy Vancouver night to share music and explore their creativity. There was an instant connection as the two artists spent the evening talking about what it means to live a musical life. That night a seed was planted which would grow to become Onelight. With a love of folk, indie rock and electronica, Onelight's music can be described as having “one foot in the street and one foot in the milky way" with comparisons to acts such as Morcheeba and Beth Orton.
The duo's self-titled debut album is emotionally rich with ethereal vocals, harmonies, tripped out textures and layered percussive beats. The album was recorded and produced by Onelight in their studio hideouts The Hovel and The SoundSpace and the duo enlisted the talented Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, Mother Mother) to mix 10 of the album tracks with Hamish rounding out the mixing duties.
Since they've completed their debut album, Onelight has moved from the studio to the stage with performances in Vancouver, New York and a tour of India that culminated in an international festival in the Rajasthan desert. Their live stage show features spirited vocals, vintage instruments and live electronics, creating a show that is inspired and connected.
Don't miss out on your chance to see Onelight perform live at their Album Release Party on Saturday, November 23rd at The Media Club. For more information see below. Onelight's debut album will be available on iTunes & all other digital retailers on Tuesday, November 26th. For more information, please visit: www.weareonelight.com.
