Tidings brings together traditional carols, and not-so-traditional songs, all interpreted, redefined even, through the vocal and piano artistry of Allison Crowe.
It's a much-loved collection tagged "the Yule-tide find of the year" by one music critic. "Her voice celebrates the music with a bluesy rock-gospel intensity; her controlled vibrato, silken rasp, and powerful projection rivet your attention. This is no casual background music... be prepared to be amazed," says another reviewer.
The album of is popular year-round - not just during the Christmas season when it's a natural. It's truly "music for the season and all time".
Tidings is recorded, live-off-the-floor, on Winter's eve in Canada by Engineer & Producer Larry Anschell, (Pearl Jam, Sarah McLachlan, k-os), who captures the magic at his Turtle Recording studio by the shore in White Rock, BC, Canada.
