The Canoe storY:
MOST RECENT ALBUM
Created here is a spatial, delicate sound that allows Carrie’s mesmeric voice and rhythmic, ﬂuid guitar style to take centre stage, with piano and other instrumentation adding to the soundscape. “I was captivated by the tender yet expansive power in Carrie’s voice and music,” says Markus. “My main focus was to bring out quiet, subtle qualities that could weave the listener gently into her evocative and mysterious songs.”
They worked remotely across the seas through a winter, drawing on a palette of diverse international musicians. With Markus based in Colorado and Mexico, and Carrie in London and Sussex, they met ‘halfway’ in the spring of 2018 to complete the record in Greenhouse Studios, Iceland.
The album title reflects the symbolic and metaphorical significance of canoes and journeys taken on water,
“In many traditions, there is the idea that we are born on a canoe (via the mother’s body) and when we die, we leave on one too. A lot of the songs have birth, death, water, home, and travel as their central themes, so the idea of a canoe felt like a beautiful symbol for that.”
