  • Description

    Critically acclaimed sophomore album by indie/folk/electonica wizard Joshua Van Tassel gets a UK release by Proper Distribtion. Joshua Van Tassel is a man of many hats. Born in rural Nova Scotia, he's studied music across Canada with stints in his home province of Nova Scotia as well as Ontario and Alberta. Something of a musical chameleon, he's acted in a supporting role for such diverse artists as Doug Paisley, Great Lake Swimmers, David Myles, Royal Wood, Justin Rutledge, Ronley Teper, Selina Martin and Valery Gore, among others. With his solo career Van Tassel has a built a reputation as a producer and composer of electro-acoustic music that is both highly sophisticated and easily digestible. His music, which has been featured on the Outdoor Life Network's program "Departures" and "Descending", is a tapestry of traditions; the familiar plucking of folk music floats amongst drum machines and ambient field recordings, driving bass lines melt into flowing synth melodies. His self-titled album has received critical acclaim from the CBC, The Toronto Star, NOW Magazine, was chosen as one of the top albums of 2011 by CBC Radio 2's 'The Signal' and was nominated for a 2013 ECMA Award. His new album "Dream Date" was released to critical acclaim in April 2013, earning a Music Nova Scotia Awards nomination for Electronic Album of the Year All Forward Music Group releases come in lovely ltd packaging this release includes lyric sheets and prints.
