Jane Blanchard releases a new EP, ‘Still, Again’, on Gerry Loves Records.
Includes the first single ‘Missing Me’, it’s the first release from the Canadian artist since relocating to Scotland.
Now Edinburgh-based, the singer-songwriter hails from Fredericton, New Brunswick where she founded and still directs Flourish Festival.
The EP’s five tracks, all self-penned, were written by Blanchard, and produced and recorded by Mike Track at Memramcook studio in her home province. Mixing by Corey Bonnevie and mastering by Evan Hansen and Brad Perry were similarly completed in Carada, at The Recordery.
The record is available digitally and on limited edition 12”, with the vinyl version also includes her last (and according to her label, “criminally overlooked”) EP ‘Enemy’ EP, as well as a download of the ‘Narcissus’ EP.
Plans for the launch of the mini-album have delayed as might be expected – following plans for shows at Leith Depot, as well as Flourish Festival in New Brunswick (which she founded and still directs.
And the label – whose back catalogue sports around 20 releases including Adam Stafford, Conquering Animal Sound, Rick Redbeard, John Knox Sex Club, Over The Wall and Book Group – have been similarly hit by the pandemic in what is their 10th year in operation. “I guess we’ll have an 11th birthday party next year… hopefully!” they say.
