Album Reviews!! Check em out.

Now Toronto - "Alanna Gurr’s voice brings you inside. It’s hushed and raspy, giving you a sense of secret confidences as she coos her at times nearly whispered tunes."

Rating: 4NNNN’s !

https://www.nowtoronto.com/music/story.cfm?content=197811

Gray Owl Point - "“Swimmer” is an absolutely pristine album opener. It’s perhaps Gurr’s best vocal performance to date, expressing feelings of wanting to just get away, but also accepting changes as they roll around."

Rating: Proud Hoot(Really Good)

She Does The City - "After the first taste, I was ready to hear more. The whole record delivers the same satisfaction; it is fluid, and saturated with warmth. There is gentle movement present within every track, creating a buzz of soft energies. They can be heard at the forefront, through Alanna’s whispery smooth vocals, or within the supporting instrumentations atmospheric guitar patterns and sweeping pedal steel tones."

Exclaim - " (an) eight-song collection in the form of cooed vocals, gentle pedal steel and spaciously atmospheric folk rock arrangements.”

Listen to This: Alanna Gurr and the Greatest State

The soundtrack to your summer nights has arrived. Alanna Gurr and The Greatest State have returned with their sophomore album, Late at Night, released through the new Guelph label Missed Connection Records. My first taste of Alanna’s new tunes came from the live-recorded Southern Souls video for Hell and High Water. This video checks out with everything I want to see and hear; a serene setting inside a gorgeous old church, captured with sun pouring in through the windows, and a fantastic raw take of a song about the lengths you’ll go for love.

I shot a little video in my music partner Gordon Auld’s screen printing studio back in the summer. Victor Ly from Grown Locally was nice enough to hang out with me for an afternoon while I tried out a new song!

Well, I’m going to get better at updating the website, because a lot of cool things have happened in the last few months!
We went on a tour with the lovely Saskatchewan man Zachary Lucky! We played Sarnia, London, Guelph, Hamilton, Toronto, Peterborough, Kingston, Ottawa & Montreal. 
Also we have been recording our new album in Welland, Ont at “Tapes and Plates” with Ian Romano and Kenny Meehan. I will still be using the album art for Golden Coast that I posted before, and we still very much LOVE Dan Beeson and all of his talents but Dan has gotten quite busy with a cool thing called “Pinball Sessions” in his studio so we mutually decided it was best to try this album in a new space.
So plans, for a solo western Canada tour are in the works for Jan/Feb and then a full band Eastern tour in the spring!
