Selkie

Lennie’s new international release ‘Selkie’. This performance was filmed in a beautiful church in Prince Edward Island. Lennie was accompanied by his band Jeremy Gallant, Patricia Richard, Sean Kemp, as well as Karen Graves, and Natalie Williams Calhoun.

The song refers to a piece of mystical Gaelic lore about magical seal maidens that shed their skin to become human for the sake of love, and this transformation takes place on a blood moon.

The song Selkie is on Lennie Gallant’s album Time Travel and is available through www.LennieGallant.com and iTunes.

We Want Contact

A hot topic in news feeds, online chatrooms and even barrooms these days is;  Are we alone in the universe? The recorded sightings by navy pilots, the recently released huge trove of previously secret CIA documents, along with new possible radio bursts from other galaxies have renewed interest in an age old quest. Are we receiving info or even visits from beings of another world?

Lennie Gallant’s new single,  We Want Contact, takes on the topic with an up tempo rockin number that both examines the quest for alien connection and why this might be exactly what we need in a world that could a bit of guidance of some kind. The song is both whimsical and serious, while being a bit of an earworm as well. Produced by multi-award winner Daniel Ledwell, the number even includes some actual mysterious radio wave recordings from the great beyond to kick it off!

Sequoia

The song Sequoia has recently garnered a great deal of attention and is Lennie Gallant’s new single from his award winning album TIME TRAVEL. He and partner Patricia Richard travelled to the Sierra Nevada in California last October where they filmed beautiful footage for the video amongst these venerable elders of the forest. Gallant says “Nothing could prepare me to sing that song at daybreak, amongst the Sequoia trees, with no one present but us and the cameraman. I was so moved I could barely finish singing the song.” The song is an ode to these amazing trees that can grow to over 300 ft high and live to be over 3000 years old! “It seems as though if you could listen hard enough while in their presence, you might learn something about time itself and why we are here. They have an enormous energy force around them and they are also amazing at trading large amounts of carbon in the atmosphere for oxygen and could play an important role in reversing climate change through efforts to repopulate the world with their numbers.”

If we want to heal the planet, we must make everyday count.

Time Travel, Lennie Gallant’s latest album, includes 13 songs that showcase a fresh, new approach to Lennie’s music.

 

The album won a 2020 Canadian Folk Music Award for Producer of the Year, Daniel Ledwell. 

 

Time Travel, the long awaited album by celebrated Canadian songwriter, Lennie Gallant, takes us on a trip that delves into journeys of the heart, our time on the planet, place in the universe, ancient legends, road stories and an oddly confused ghost. The album covers a lot of ground and is an explorative and deeply evocative album that will be sure to move the listener on many levels. Gallant’s rich vocals are brought to the fore on this recording and the often full orchestral arrangements provide the ideal setting for them to shine.

Gallant’s album seems to be in the right place at the right time. Songs like ‘Nothing Makes Sense,’ a tongue in cheek view of our present state of global affairs, ‘Sequoia’, a heartfelt ode to a tall elder of our fragile ecosystem, ‘We Want Contact’, our search for others like us out there, and ‘There’s a Storm Coming’, an oft quoted timely phrase. It seems many of the songs on the album were ripped from the day’s headlines while taking a lyrical sideways glance at where we are headed spiritually and emotionally in our quest to cope in rather dubious times.

The album, produced by Daniel Ledwell, features guest appearances by Mary Jane Lamond, Rose Cousins, Jenn Grant, The Fretless, and The Atlantic String Machine, among others. The new songs have been garnering significant airplay and stellar reviews. The album was recently named one of the Top Ten Folk Albums of the Year alongside Richard Thompson, John Prine and Joan Baez by a panel of Canadian music industry professionals.  

Gallant truly is a master tunesmith. His lyrics and the melody lines that flow through them are beautifully interwoven and go straight for the heart almost every time.   The Guardian  

Emotional, alluring, and nothing short of pitch-perfect, Time Travel is an absolute must-listen.  Canadian Beats Media
