Canadian feel good folkster Chris Assaad is headed to Australia this month and bringing with him his latest collection of feel good roots & folk tunes. The new EP ‘Into the light’ is out this month and reflects on one’s ability to remain strong in the face of adversity, holding your head high and remaining true to yourself… It’s pretty inspiring stuff!
“It’s about bringing our passions and our creative gifts to light and some of the challenges we encounter along the way and the idea of community, walking the path together and having other people to share that journey with.
On a spiritual level you could base it on the notion of – when you go within you never go without.” – Chris Assaad
The six track EP will be a must for fans of Busby Marou, Ben Howard or John Butler. It’s the perfect accompaniment to combi vans and log fires with your friends but will sound equally at home on your Sunday afternoon session in the sun.
Stand out track for me is the title track ‘Into the Light’. It’s a modern day ‘Stand by me’, a musical shoulder to lean on when your chips are down. The perfect pick me up after a tough day at the office and a reminder, if it were needed, that everything is going to be ok.
Chris Assaad will be sharing his sunshine vibes in Sydney toward the end of this month playing the Beach Rd. Hotel on 22nd March before heading to the uber cool 505 for the official Into the light EP launch the day after on the 23rd. Get involved, you won’t be disappoint!
