There’s a Rising Tide on the horizon and it’s the emotional epicentre of Toronto-based Americana singer and songwriter Taivi’s refreshing new album.

Thirteen songs deep and recorded in North America and Frankfurt, Germany, the Rising Tide sessions were mentored by Grammy-nominated internationally renowned bluegrass star Claire Lynch, whose incredible band served as support on the album, along with a few other notable musicians.

Engineered by Nicolas Tjelios (Basia Bulat, Jenny Whiteley, Ken Whiteley,) the intriguing and topical self-penned songs reflect “life and connections,” Taivi says, ranging from taking stock (“Red Moon Rise”) and ecology (“The Clearwater”) to romance (“When I’m With You, a duet with Nova Scotian Ryan Roberts) and rumination (“One More Dance.”)

“I feel lucky to have a body of work like Rising Tide out there,” says Taivi. “From the inspiration for the songs through the production, it has drawn from- and brought together- beautiful influences in my life.”

“It’s a continuing journey – and I’m looking forward to where the next step is going to take me.”
