Description

Canadian multi-platinum-selling rockers Big Wreck return with 'Grace Street', an album that continues to build on the creative momentum of their two previous JUNO Award-nominated releases, 'Ghosts' and 'Albatross'. Featuring guitar virtuoso and lead-singer Ian Thornley, and co-produced by Garth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers), the sonic diversity on Grace Street is indeed stunning. Heavy grooving tracks such as lead-off single "One Good Piece of Me" and "Digging In" rub shoulders with the atmospheric "A Speedy Recovery" and the epic seven-minute instrumental "Skybunk Marché." Other tracks feature added touches, such as Miles Davis-style muted trumpet, wine glasses, a sample of a child's heartbeat and a Leslie speaker guitar solo recorded on a mountainside adjacent to Richardson's B.C. studio. At the core of Grace Street are live, off-the-floor performances by founding front man Ian Thornley on guitar and keyboards, accompanied by drummer Chuck Keeping and bassist Dave McMillan. Thornley placed a real focus on maintaining the human element in every aspect of the sessions, resulting in a journey on which no previous Big Wreck album has taken its listeners. As Guitar Player Magazine proclaimed, "All of Canada is not big enough to contain Thornley's talent."
