Three Artists, Three Days, Three Albums

Posted on

What do The Farrell Brothers, Cheatron and Dominique Reynolds all have in common? All three local artists are releasing anticipated albums over the weekend in Winnipeg.

Singer/songwriter Reynolds will release her debut full length, Coming Home, at the Blue Agave on Thursday, May 29. Armed with a piano and a powerful voice, Reynolds blends pop, jazz and folk on her new offering, which was produced by Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Wyrd Sisters, Crash Test Dummies). For the party, Reynolds will be joined by fellow members of a capella World music sextet Madrigaia as well as a talented backing band featuring Richard Moody, Daniel Roy and DJ Brace.

Popular rockabilly duo the Farrell Bros’ third effort, Rumble @ the Opry - which shares its name with the brothers’ weekly radio program on CKUW 95.9 FM, will be release in Canada on west coast punk label, Teenage Rampage. Next month, under the name Curbstomp Boggie, the album will make its way across the rest of the world on English psychobilly label Raucous Records. Winnipeg audiences can catch the Farrells’ CD release with The Rowdymen at West End Cultural Centre on Friday, May 30.

Folk/rock quartet Cheatron will inaugurate the newly renovated space at the former Garrick Theatre - renamed the Ramada Entertainment Centre - on Saturday, May 31 with their own release party.
