Pictures Of Us


Braden Gates is writing hard hitting topical songs giving us a street view of our times and that are delivered with honesty and conviction. 'Pictures Of Us' is his fourth album his first release on Borealis Records. The album is produced, recorded and mixed by Harry Gregg and features Daniel Akira Stadnicki (drums, percussion), Keith Rempel (bass), Elliot Thomas (banjo, dobro),Rott'n Dan Shinnan (harmonica), David Aide (Hammond B3), Maddie Storvold (harmony vocals), Daniel Gervais (fiddle), Jaron Freeman-Fox (viola d'armour) and Braden Gates (vocals, guitar, fiddle).

Edmonton's own Braden Gates is a folk singer through and through, and in the best possible sense of the word. His songs are full of stories that flow through him easily, and with all the grace, empathy and nuance that masterful story telling requires. Edmonton Folk Music Festival

Gates' warm and slightly gravelly voice relays stories that are funny and heartbreaking usually over the course of the same tune. Full of wit and wisdom, folksy charm and sharp observations, Gates' compositions are relevant and, strangely, very rooted in the present even if he plays that fiddle and picks that guitar like an artist three times his age. Calgary Folk Music Festival

Beyond any specific tune, Gates' gifts as a wordsmith, or his talents arranging fine melodies for acoustic strings, there's an intangible quality to the man's work call it sincerity that makes you want to listen. His tunes remind you again why we're all called to explore art at some time or other, for that sense of sharing the common human experience. Edmonton Journal
