Video Premiere: The Once, 'All the Hours'

October 27, 2014

theonce1 300x300 square.jpgOver the past five years, The Once has been quietly making a name for themselves in their native Canada. The Newfoundland-based band has collected a trio of Canadian Folk Music Awards, been named Newfoundland & Labrador Art Council's Artist of the Year, earned a Juno nomination for best Roots/Traditional album, and just recently won the 2014 MusicNL Award for Group of the Year and The Telegram Folk/Roots Recording of the Year.

On August 5, 2014, the trio (Geraldine Hollett, Andrew Dale and Phil Churchill) released 'Departures' - their first album on Nettwerk Records. The songs themselves often touch upon a sense of departure - whether it is in a tribute to someone who has died ("The Town Where You Lived"), a tale of murder ("The Nameless Murderess"), a tune about leaving someone (the breakup ode "Fool For You"), or a song such as, "All the Hours" - an on-the-road love letter to a loved one left behind.

As Geraldine introduces, "Here is a video we shot on a day off in Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC this past September. The song is about being away from home and feeling disconnected to the people that love you the most. The ones that are waiting for you to return. The special few that you bare your soul to. Sometimes the best thing to do when you feel that lost is to just go on home."

The Once are currently on their first ever world tour as support for Passenger. See them live!

Folk Alley Welcomes Host Cindy Howes

October 13, 2014

Cindy Howes I Heart FA 250x250.jpgFolk Alley is excited to welcome Cindy Howes to our esteemed team of Folk Alley hosts!

Starting today (10/13) you'll hear Cindy every Monday - Friday from 2:00 - 7:00pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from midnight to 5:00am EASTERN.

From Cindy:

"From the day my parents bought me a radio on my 12th birthday, I listened to it pretty much all-the-time-every-day. I'm not quite sure what made me think this as a 6th grader, but I decided being a DJ was what I was going to do. I made it my mission to join the high school's radio club and broadcasted my first show in September of my freshman year. Staying close to home, I ran and hosted WERS' morning folk program at Emerson College in Boston. My affinity for folk music flourished in the city's rich music scene. If I wasn't at the radio station, I'd be at Club Passim soaking in as much live music as I could. I have fond memories of being snuck in through the back of 21+ clubs and being given a band member's wrist band, so I could stay and watch. This desire to be around Boston folk music continued after college, when I was lucky enough to fall in with one of the most talented music communities in the country. Concerts from people like Mark Erelli, Rose Cousins, Peter Mulvey and Anais Mitchell were weekly occurrences. In 2007, after working at several Boston stations (Triple A, AM News, folk and NPR News), I was hired as the Morning Mix host at WYEP in Pittsburgh, PA. I am honored to be a part of the Folk Alley team, where I'm able to combine my passion for radio and folk music once again!"
