On October 23, Patricia O’Callaghan will be releasing her brand new holiday record ‘Deepest December‘ via Roaring Girl Records and Fontana North.

Patricia O’Callaghan has become synonymous with tasteful versatility in song and her first Christmas album is no exception.   It’s not your typical holiday record as it employs the delicate renaissance instrumentation of nyckelharpa, hurdy gurdy, and harp as a consistent backdrop.  There are masterful interpretations of classics such as ‘In the Bleak Midwinter‘ and ‘O Come O Come Emmanuel‘ next to Nick Drake‘s ‘Northern Sky‘ – it’s in songs like those with their beautiful carols, haunting arrangements, and unusual juxtapositions that make you feel at once the icy frost of winter and the warmth of the hearth.  Beloved Canadian Poet, Dennis Lee (Alligator Pie) makes a co-writing appearance alongside Ben Grossman (Loreena McKennitt) and Miranda Mulholland (Great Lake Swimmers).

With over fifteen years as a performer, Patricia has tackled various genres, crossed continents, and taken on a wide range of disciplines and passions. Her recording career spans six solo CDs and her early recordings focused on European cabaret.  She is considered a specialist in the music of Kurt Weill and has performed his Threepenny Opera, Seven Deadly Sins, and Kleine Mahagonny with Soulpepper Theatre Company, Edmonton Opera, and Vancouver Opera (to name a few).She has sung with some of the world’s great ensembles and artists (Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Don Byron Quartet, Bryn Terfel), and has performed in venues that range from London’s Royal Opera House to New York’s Noho Cabaret Le Poisson Rouge.

Get ‘Rub’ Via iTunes HERE

Since the September release of Peaches‘ new record ‘Rub‘ the accolades have come pouring in from all over the world. This album is her most adventurous, audacious musical statement yet. It continues on the bold, sexually progressive path she forged 15 years ago that’s opened the door for countless others to follow. Her inventive vision was most recently acknowledged with her nomination for the inaugural 2016 Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize.

The time is ripe for Peaches
-Sun Media

-Now Magazine

Rub is Peaches’ ballsiest record to date

Fierce, phenomenal, filthy and full of middle fingers to conventional thinking, stereotypes of femininity and gendered expectations, Rub is an electrifying and powerful new record
-CBC Music

If you have not seen P [Peaches] live, may I express with all of myself that you must. She is ferocious, relentless, sexy, confident, and gives all of herself to her audience.”
-Ellen Page (from What Else Is In The Teaches Of Peaches)

She doesn’t push boundaries, she obliterates them
-Quick Before It Melts

Canada’s queen of filth is back
-New Music Canada
Peaches is just the shit. She’s the bravest one of us out there.”
- Amy Schumer (Time Magazine)

Peerless iconoclast
