With their previous album Long Live, Toronto's Snowblink caught the attention of all of us here at the shop with its soaring peaks and majestic valleys propelled by singer Daniela Gesundheit. They also caught the ear of Arts & Crafts, who have just released their beautiful follow-up record Inner Classics.
"Originally from California, Snowblink’s Daniela Gesundheit has integrated herself deeply into the music scene of her adopted Toronto. Her 2010 debut album as Snowblink, Long Live, was recorded before she moved here, but the glistening space folk fit in perfectly with Toronto’s sound and caught the ear of critics as well as fellow musicians. On her follow-up full-length, she develops her voice further while maintaining the delicate beauty that made her debut so enchanting." - NOW Magazine
"...Snowblink’s real ability to expand on the singer/songwriter genre stems from Gesundheit’s confidence. In “Goodbye Eyes,” she shows no fear as she sings nothing but music scales except for the last line of the song. “Inner Mini-Mississippi” proves the best music in this genre is led by vocals, and Gesundheit boldly leads the track through a progression of gentle guitar to intense chords to a confident a capella section. Snowblink’s understanding of the potential of the singer/songwriter music style is what ultimately makes Inner Classics a complete success." - The Gateway
"Long Live was an overlooked collection of art/folk songs, but with Inner Classics the band announces itself into the Canadian scene with class and grace." - Herohill
(Snowblink and Alex Lukashevsky release their respective new releases Inner Classics and Too Late Blues at the Music Gallery on Thu. Sep 27.)
