The Small Glories
Produced by 54-40 frontman Neil Osborne and mixed by Warne Livesey, “Wondrous Traveler” is abundant with tight harmonies, authenticity and a blend of traditional and contemporary elements that define this creative partnership. Love, life and transitions are driving themes of the album, supported by a diverse band of background instrumentalists. It’s audible in the progressive 'Had I Paid,' to the graceful choir presence in 'Home' and nostalgic lyricism of '1000 Stars.' From the traditional country folk elements of 'Time Wanders On' to the anthemic, upbeat 'Way Over Yonder In The Minor Key,' The Small Glories prove they are veterans of a familiar scene, while ever-evolving and versatile for an international audience.
“Wondrous Traveler” was recorded live to tape at the new Bottega Studios in Kelowna, BC and features guest musicians Mark Mariash (percussion), Gilles Fournier (bass), Scott Nygaard (lead acoustic guitar), Andrew McCrorie-Shand (hurdy gurdy & accordion), Jesse Padgett (Scruggs banjo) and Ivonne Hernandez (violin).
