"It Has Happened"
From the album By Grand Central Station
Featured track, available from December 28 to January 5
Kick off your new year with some new music from a new band... Royal Canoe frontman Matt Peters and actor/singer/songwriter Tom Keenan have teamed up as Heavy Bell and they're ringing in 2018 with the launch of By Grand Central Station, a song cycle based on Elizabeth Smart’s novel By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept. Peters and Keenan's voices are at the core of the album, which also features musical friends from Begonia, Chic Gamine, Slattern, Imaginary Cities, and the WSO. The duo is already turning heads, landing a feature from tastemaker Paste for its first video, "Certainly". Stay for second video early January plus a tour that'll hit Saskatoon, Edmonton, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Calgary. The album gets its official release on January 12 with a hometown party at the West End Cultural Centre on January 13. To get you ready for a new year of music, we've got a special preview of Heavy Bell's upcoming album with this week's featured track, "It Has Happened". Get it, get out to the WECC for the album release, and start 2018 with live music.
