“...I now have this CD "Echoed Light" on repeat, it's that good...the production compliments the smooth, articulate writing style that has become the trademark of Meg Tennant's music... ”
About the new CD "ECHOED LIGHT"
(CD launch concert May 17, 2019, Burdock Music Hall, Toronto. Released online March 26, 2019)
Our lives roll on as the light shifts between the seasons. From full band to intimate acoustic arrangements, this collection of songs offers up some hope, comfort and clarity.
Co-produced by Toronto roots rocker Mark Ripp and Meg Tennant, this album has a full, warm sound that settles in around Meg's voice, and carries the listener along through a northern winter break-up (Silence & Snowbanks), a contemplative walk through the woods (Let's Walk This Road), some encouraging words (Not Done Yet), and the loss of a loved one (Shine a Light on Us).
"...The songs, most of them recent, pulse with the ideology of perseverance that Meg brings to all of her stories..." —Paul Corby
"...This sweet-voiced artistically mature singer-songwriter might come as a revelation to many...Meg's voice manages to sound both girlish and world-weary at the same time. And there are some beautiful songs here." —Roots Music Canada
