Vocalist/producer Candace Lacina and keyboardist/producer Mike Little and a few of Canada’s other popular roots music session musicians decided to make music together, to combine their skills and influences to forge a hybrid of country, gospel and blues, to create something new on their own. As The Hello Darlins they have now released their debut full-length album Go By Feel. In that context, opening track Catch That Train is significant, because it is about changing the direction of your life: “We wanted the music to reflect a sense of excitement that change brings, but also a heaviness that sometimes comes when you realize here are no other options and you have to leave things behind in order to ‘get on board’ with something different.” Thanks to this “supergroup”, the Americana genre is 11 timeless quality songs richer, tunes that are compelling and have an eye for detail.
