LIGHTHOUSEKEEPERS – GOOD KISSING SCHOOL (2003)
Lighthousekeepers provided perceptive, open pop-folk music to growing audiences in Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal from May 2002 to sometime in 2004.
Featuring the wide-ranging songwriting of Neil Gerster, and colliding his cooly expressive tenor against the emotional flute onslaught of Rozalind MacPhail, Lighthousekeepers create soundscapes from ambient drowning songs to peppy toetappers. ArtGirl (aka Maureen Adams) provides the backbeat on a djembe often augmented with surprising delay effects. The band also usually has a bassist around somewhere, and has at times added a French horn, a second flute, a violin, a keyboard, a drum kit, vocal harmonies and junkyard percussion on stage to round out its sound(s?). Even in their standard guitar-flute-djembe-bass configuration, the group’s sound can not be mistaken for anyone else’s.
VARIOUS – THURSDAY HEROES (2003)
A 19 track live, one-take recording featuring 12 musical offerings and 7 poems representing the best of Thursday Night Coffeehouse, the ever popular open-stage music and poetry night hosted by the well known singer-songwriter Trevor Tchir and his co-host, accomplished poet, Kristy McKay. The disc includes a diverse assortment of genres and instruments including jazz, folk, folk-rock, blues, flute, piano and of course poetry; and is a fully mastered, full-end production. Lighthousekeepers performs an intimate and raw version of “Matador”.
