Massey Hall presents
It’s time: Emily Haines is back with Choir of the Mind (Sept 15), the Metric singer’s first release as her Soft Skeleton solo project in a decade. Haines’ vocals are the focal point of Choir of the Mind, used to create spellbinding orchestrations for an effect that is subtle and ghostly Joined by her longtime musical partner/Metric bandmate, James Shaw.
That interval between releases has particular resonance for Haines: 10 years after her Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton EP What Is Free to a Good Home?, which in turn stemmed from her 2006 LP Knives Don’t Have Your Back. Ten years before that, she released Cut in Half and Also Double under her own name. These titles are among many other releases as a member of Metric and Broken Social Scene.
We're excited to welcome Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton to the Live at Massey Hall Concert and Film Series.
