Just A Season album release w/ guests Gentle Party
JUST A SEASON
I've done a lot of things for the paycheque, sings Scott Smith in Now That I've Found You, the relentlessly upbeat ninth track from Just a Season's newest album, All The Stars Are Out Tonight. And some, he continues, for the art.
It's assumed, naturally, that Smith was driven by the latter motive when he conceived and then fronted Just a Season for its acclaimed self-titled debut in 2014. If that album allowed the talented multi-instrumentalist to assume the spotlight after a long time spent lending his signature gifts to headliners as notable as Barney Bentall, Rich Hope, and Aaron Pritchett, Just a Season's newest record finds Smith deepening his strengths as a singer-songwriter of contemporary Americana while giving his cohorts the chance to strike an even sweeter balance between precision and feel.

Gentle Party is an avant chamber pop ensemble that pioneers a unique, expansive sound distinct to the quartets West Coast roots. The hauntingly evocative voice of Jessicka rests on a bed of luscious strings from Meredith Bates (violin), Shanto Acharia (cello) and Elisa Thorn (harp). The music conjures images of pandemonium and playfulness contrasted with stark heartbreak. Their debut album, Jouska, was recorded with award winning producer Chris Gestrin with the support of the Canada Arts Council.
