About Doug Edmond

Songwriter, pianist and vocalist Doug Edmond and the band (Mitch Dorge on drums, Rubin Kantorovich on guitars, Alasdair Dunlop on bass and Bill Spornitz on sax) returned to Winnipeg's Park Theatre stage to a capacity crowd to release the new CD "Between the Shadows and the Light" on Oct 3, 2009. The band committed to returning to the Park after their sold out show at the Park on April 19, 2008. The April gig was just prior to the band's successful showcase performance in Nashville last May!

Once again, the band returns to the Park Theatre in support of Winnipeg Harvest with opening act The Sweet Alibi who have been wowing audiences with their unique folk/roots sound. Come on out and support Winnipeg Harvest and don't forget to bring a tin for the bin!

Doug plays with true emotion and writes intelligent lyrics. During live performances Doug and the band slide easily from extremely personal heartfelt ballads to lively jazz roots numbers. Mitch Dorge, of Crash Test Dummies fame, produced the CD. Mitch brings the best out of all artists who have had the pleasure to work with him in the studio. His exceptional drumming skills bring the right rhythmic texture to all of the band's performances. Bill Spornitz continues to be one of Winnipeg's finest sax players while Rubin Kantorovich provides rich textured guitar. Alasdair Dunlop inspires all who have the opportunity to witness his live performance.

Doug draws from a diverse genre of jazz, folk and blues. Have a listen to Doug's sound on the CD or visit his web site to appreciate the band's jazz/roots sound.

Between the Shadows and the Light - Doug Edmond


Between is the operative word in that title. Singer-pianist Edmond's album finds him betwixt a number of genres and influences. While his raspy pipes and folksy delivery suggest he's spent quality time with Dylan's catalogue (the cover of It's All Over Now, Baby Blue helps, too), some jazzy pop and burbling guitars move things in a Knopfleresque direction -- while the mellow saxophone and soulful elements take a detour to Van Morrison's realm. Rather than being neither here nor there, Edmond makes Between seem like the right place.
