Tonight We Sail
Guelph-based artist Sue Smith’s revelatory new album offers up a soulful fusion of stellar ensemble playing with veteran musicians Jeff Bird, Kevin Breit, Randall Coryell and Howie Southwood, collectively known as The Potion Kings.
Standing firmly in the centre of the Potion Kings’ incendiary musical alchemy, Sue’s expressive and sultry voice blends melancholy with hope, inviting the listener on a journey into the night and beyond, arriving at the inevitable awakening of a new day.
The songwriting on Tonight We Sail represents a wide span of Sue’s own catalogue, as well as two cover tunes penned by Tom Petty and Robbie Robertson.
Whenever the Potion Kings play, it's always an adventure, taking deep dives into the worlds of rock, jazz, blues, roots and more. Recorded live in studio (2017/18), Tonight We Sail beautifully captures their inventive mastery, interweaving with Sue’s voice and enlivening an evocative collection of songs.
