Cameron House Records is proud to partner with Toronto singer/songwriter Doug Paisley on the Canadian release of his acclaimed EP, Golden Embers. Originally released in the U.S. in April 2012 through Paisley’s New York-based label No Quarter, the five-track collection was recorded live-off-the-floor with a group that included Leslie Feist on harmony vocals, Blue Rodeo bassist Bazil Donovan, and mandolin virtuoso Joey Wright.

Pitchfork described the song “Sad Sinner,” as a “quietly stunning elegy for innocence,” while Exclaim! called another song, “Bats,” “trademark Paisley: alternating effortlessly between wry, squint-eyed melancholy and Will Oldham-esque odes to joy.” These notices for Golden Embers build on rave reviews Paisley has already earned in Rolling StoneMojo,The New YorkerUncut and many other media outlets for his previous two full-length albums.

When asked about his decision to work with Cameron House Records, Paisley says, “The Cameron House has been a part of my musical life since I began performing and going to shows there a decade ago. My musical roots are in bluegrass, which I played in weekly gigs at the Cameron, and which I’ve returned to on this EP. The Cameron House is my favourite Toronto venue, and I’m very pleased to have this EP on Cameron House Records.”

The official Canadian launch of Golden Embers takes place Saturday, Nov. 30 at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall, where Paisley will perform an opening set for Hayden. Paisley will be accompanied by all of the players who contributed to Golden Embers, with Tamara Lindeman subbing for Feist on vocals. A more intimate release show in Toronto will be announced shortly.
