The New Album is Out!
After a ring-dinger of an Edmonton release show on October 6th, The Earth That You're Made Of  hit #6 on the Earshot national folk/roots/blues chart, and #3 on the CKUA chart.

Here's a sample of the praise it's received so far:

"Crystal clear voice, skilfully constructed songs and formidable piano, guitar, and arrangement chops…it's the songs that make this album a winner." – Penguin Eggs Magazine 

"Her voice has an arresting purity that slides between strength and vulnerability…she plays acoustic and electric guitars, piano and keyboards and even penned horn or string arrangements for half the tracks on her latest album…even with all those extras Wylie’s voice and songwriting remain the highlight of the set." – Roger Levesque, Edmonton Journal 

"Subtle and lulling, her voice is the sound you’d hear in a forest haunted by benevolent ghosts." – Michael Dunn, BeatRoute Magazine

And the all-powerful Jay Gilday will open the evening as only he can. There'll be a cash bar with reasonably-priced beer and wine, and a few snacks to soak up the booze in your belly.

Advance tickets are $20, $15 for students and musicians; door tickets are $25. Advance tix can be got online through Tix on the Square (see link below) if you want to use debit or credit, or through Dana herself (dana@danawylie.net) if you'd like to hand her some good old fashioned cash money and don't want to pay any service charges.

ALSO: I'd love a few volunteers to help work the door and sling CDs and drinks, so PM me if you'd like to help out.

(The Earth That You're Made Of was co-produced by Dana Wylie and Harry Gregg and recorded at the Audio Department in Edmonton in October 2016, and features the talents of Daniel Stadnicki, Keith Rempel, Bob Tildesley, Audrey Ochoa, Dave Babcock, Kirsten Elliott, Bob Blair, Stefan Kijek, Ken Stead, Chloe Albert, Jess Dollimont, Christing Hanson, Daniel Gervais, Alexander Chow, Christine Yu, Clayton Leung, and Amy Nicholson.)
