Red Moon Road

Acoustic Folk Roots

About

The path towards the new Red Moon Road album, Sorrows and Glories, began with a shattered leg, a cancelled tour and a long 2000 km trip home. Luckily, the Winnipeg folk trio is known for surviving adversity, spinning stories into songs and, more often, breaking hearts with stunning musicianship. 

Red Moon Road, formed in 2012 by Daniel Jordan, Sheena Rattai and Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner, are now fully healed and returned from a 2015 of expansive and adventure filled touring across 7 counties in Europe and North America. The new album (their third, released in Fall 2015) has already spent three weeks at number one in it's eight weeks on the Earshot! National Folk/Roots/Blues Charts and has delighted listeners world wide. 

Sorrows and Glories was recorded by producer/engineer/Juno recipient, David Travers-Smith (Wailin' Jennys, Ruth Moody) and award winning producer-player Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Steve Bell) and delivers the band's finest songwriting to date. Spanning a wide range of genres, from a Beatles-esque pop hit “Words of the Walls” musing the storied past of an iconic apartment block, to“Beauty in These Broken Bones,” a full-on spiritual backed by a star-studded choir, the three collaborative, yet distinct, writers frame immaculate song craft with original and innovative instrumental work. While effortlessly infusing tastes of Albertan country with traditional folk storytelling and tales of familial Canadiana along-side whimsical Parisian aires in ode to Napoleon's beloved Sophie Blanchard, the music carries the stories as compellingly as the lyrics.

Live, Red Moon Road makes a much bigger sound than one would expect from a trio. In an impressive, well-choreographed show, bordering on spectacle, the trio incorporates impeccable three-part harmonies, a roots drum kit split entertainingly, but pragmatically, between two band members and an acoustic guitar unusually rigged to also be a bass. A moustached man plays mandolin, lap steel, banjo and organ (often at the same time), and subtle technological wizardry whirls as the unmistakable soulful voice of one of Canada's true emerging songstresses floats above it all. Honed in house concerts and main stage festival appearances alike, Red Moon Road is a tapestry of song, masterful storytelling and spontaneous repartee woven seamlessly into something truly exceptional.
