ACCLAIMED SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM

Out
Now!

Evangeline Gentle’s self-titled debut LP, produced by
Jim Bryson (Kathleen Edwards, Oh Susanna) at his Stittsvile, Ontario
studio Fixed Hinge and mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Philip Shaw
Bova
(Bahamas, Feist), arrives internationally via Sonic Unyon
Records on August 21, 2020. Featuring singles “Sundays”, “Ordinary
People
”, “So It Goes,” “The Strongest People Have Tender
Hearts
” and “Drop My Name”, the album is a powerful
introduction to this Hamilton-based singer-songwriter.

“I was 19 when I started writing the album and 22 when I finished
it — years that offered major coming-of-age experiences that began
solidifying the principles I want to live guided by,” Gentle confesses. “The
album’s overarching theme is the pursuit of open-heartedness. It’s driven by
the belief that it takes extreme strength to be vulnerable but that the
rewards of doing so are far greater than those of being closed-off in the
name of self-preservation. That wasn’t intentional. Only when the album was
finished did it dawn on me that this idea was the thread stitching these
songs together.”
