plus Leith Ross & Helena Deland
Canadian songwriter Andy Shauf makes his much-anticipated follow-up to 2016’s breakthrough record The Party.
Growing up in small-town Saskatchewan, Shauf creates tightly-woven narratives through established characters and poignant observations. Gaining fans like Carly Rae Jepsen, Thundercat, Flying Lotus, k.d. lang and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy who has said he “doesn’t have antecedents or contemporaries,” Shauf has garnered a reputation for earnest songwriting that uses melancholic humour and clever wordplay to produce a truly unique perspective on the world.
Possessing “a keen, emotive ear for complex arrangements and lavish orchestrations,” (NPR), few artists are storytellers as deft and disarmingly observational as Andy Shauf.

Leith Ross is a songwriter, singer, and artist born and raised in a small town outside of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. They’ve been a sensitive and overly artistic person since birth and when they started writing songs around the age of 12 it quickly became Leith’s favourite way to be sensitive and overly artistic.
Deland realizes through song writing the impossibility of feeling fully adequate (and its undesirability), and works to come to terms with the self as-is – unveiling those parts of her that were already new.
