Chris Sunfield’s Second Single “Predator” is an Abrupt About-Face Following His Sunshine Pop Debut!

“PREDATOR” by Chris Sunfield OUT NOW!

12 February 2020 (TORONTO) – Chris Sunfield’s second single “Predator” is an abrupt about-face following his sunshine pop debut “The Little Things”. Predator is a provocative poison pen letter to romantic predators, exposing their psychopathic and Machiavellian ways. The lyrics, with their reptilian metaphors, serve to validate anyone who’s been harmed by toxic narcissists, and to warn others about their predatorial charms. Musically, the song is a multi-layered wall of retro sounds with progressive house stylings and a vintage, analog, R&B vibe. Sunfield sings, and plays all guitars, bass, and keyboards. Producer Michael Hanson (Glass Tiger) plays drums while fellow Radar Love Records artist Vicky Rai handles backing vocals. The crowning moment is an acid-tinged rap by Dynamic (a.k.a. Ya Favourite Lightskin) that dials up the tension before ushering in a climax of musical dialogue among the various predator and prey players.

BIO – Chris Sunfield is a new figure on the Canadian music scene who will confidently defy labels. His songs bridge several genres such as progressive pop, symphonic pop, and epic pop, and often show classical and ambient stylings. He writes and arranges all songs, sings, and plays all guitars and keyboards. And then there’s the lyrics. In a world where many songs are not meant to be ‘read’, Sunfield’s poetics will explore thought-provoking, existential, and cosmological issues. Chris has only recently reinvented himself as a recording artist after decades of working in another occupation and suppressing his artistic side. Not surprisingly, themes of re-awakening and authenticity permeate some of his future singles and EP’s.

Mary’s Meals Canada celebrates Annie Lennox and “Universal Child” Gift

Mary’s Meals Canada Celebrates ANNIE LENNOX and
“Universal Child” Gift

TORONTO, Canada.

Mary’s Meals Canada, the school feeding charity, celebrates Annie Lennox and the gift of her hit single, “Universal Child.” Recognized as one of the most successful, iconic, and revered pop artists, Ms. Lennox has sold over 86 million albums worldwide.

“With deep gratitude, we are very excited that Annie Lennox has so generously gifted her hit single, “Universal Child to our lifesaving work of Mary’s Meals,” said Sheri McConnell, Executive Director of Mary’s Meals Canada. “Ms. Lennox recently released a digitally remastered version of her sixth solo album, A Christmas Cornucopia – a collection of inspired interpretations of traditional festive songs, rounded out by Ms. Lennox’s composition of “Universal Child.” This song is a wonderful tribute which reflects Ms. Lennox’s generosity in her gift, to the work we do.”

No stranger to the work of Mary’s Meals, the Scottish singer-songwriter, political activist and philanthropist lent her voice and testimonial originally to Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, Chief Founder of Mary’s Meals and author of “The Shed That Fed a Million Children” in 2015. “Mary’s Meals feeds a million children every single day,” said Lennox, “It’s not rocket science and it really works.” Since Ms. Lennox’s endorsement in 2015, Mary’s Meals now, feeds over 1.6 million children a day in 19 of the world’s poorest countries. The cost to feed a child is $26.40 (CDN) for 1 school year, or .13 cents per day.

“For many years now, I have been supporting the wonderful work of Mary’s Meals,’ said Ms. Lennox. “Children have always been close to my heart, I guess this is one of the reasons I wrote Universal Child.”

Universal Child” is kindly donated to Mary’s Meals by Annie Lennox.

Mary’s Meals began in 2002 when Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow visited Malawi during a famine and met a mother dying from AIDS. When Magnus asked her eldest son, Edward, what his dreams were in life, he replied simply: “I want to have enough food to eat and to be able to go to school one day.”

“The Little Things” Chris Sunfield
OUT NOW!

15 OCTOBER 2020 (TORONTO, ON) – “The Little Things” is the debut single by Chris Sunfield on Radar Love Records. The song, written by Sunfield, is a modern, sunshine pop song on steroids, with a wall-of-sound arrangement that’s reminiscent of the pop mini-symphonies of a bygone era. Sunfield handles lead vocals, guitars, and keyboards, with support by fellow Radar Love Records artist Vicky Rai on backing vocals. Michael Hanson (Glass Tiger), who produced the song, plays bass and drums. The song is unabashedly campy, retro, and infectious, with space-themed lyrics that urge us to appreciate the simple things in life while continuing to reach for the planets, stars, and moons above. “The Little Things” is the opening shot in Chris Sunfield’s music career – a career that will explore more progressive territory in future releases. 

Listen and watch “The Little Things”

Canadian Singer-songwriter David Leask Releases “Voyageur in Song”

Republished with permission from David Leask

Voyageur in Song

Today is the release of my new record, “Voyageur In Song”, songs written on and with the Six String Nation guitar, nick-named Voyageur.  This incredible instrument is made of 64 pieces of Canadian history and culture.  I have written songs about a group of those pieces and their inspiring stories.  There’s a reason they call this record “release” day.  It’s a time to finally let the songs go, to let them make their own way in the world and have all those vibrations, melodies and lyrics slowly land on people’s ears.  Find out more about the project and order a copy or download here.

GOOD VIBRATIONS
Speaking of vibrations, one interesting fact about the new record is that every song was recorded at A = 432 Hz.  What does that mean, I hear you say? Well, every instrument on this recording is tuned 8 cycles per second lower than regular concert pitch which is A = 440 Hz. It’s a tuning that apparently was used for thousands of years by Egyptians, Greeks, Tibetan monks and indeed, Verdi composed his operas in A = 432. I first heard about it from world renowned bassist, Victor Wooten at a camp he held outside of Nashville. I decided to try it out and have been using it frequently while playing live. It always feels good to me, something different, more relaxed than regular pitch. I guess you’ll have to have a listen to the new record and find out for yourself!

NOTHING BUT A STREAMER
If you’re wondering if the new record is available on streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music, the answer is yes and you can find links here. I do understand the convenience of these services but I would be remiss if I didn’t say they have gone a long way to gutting music sales for independent artists like myself, making it harder to survive.  If you stream my music, please consider making a donation directly to me at paypal.me/davidleaskmusic or order a CD for yourself or as a gift.  It’s a beautiful package wrapped in an original painting and colourful booklet with background stories and lyrics.

IN THE NEWS
The press machine is in full swing and I’ve done a couple of regional CBC interviews in BC & PEI that will air on Monday.  If you want to keep tabs on where the music is taking me, please consider following me on Facebook @DavidLeaskMusic on Twitter & Instagram @LeaskExpected.

Thanks as always for reading and listening.

Meet you in the music,
David
