// Major Love
Major Love was conceived in the lamplight of London’s Bedroom Bar, in the late spring of 2015. Canadian recording artists Colleen Brown and Scenic Route To Alaska each had wrapped their first tours in Germany and the UK, promoting separate album releases. They found themselves on the same dimly lit stage in Shoreditch, 7000 kms from their home-town of Edmonton, bonding over an appreciation of vintage Harmony guitars, singalong pop/rock anthems and an affinity for the spacious, soulful recordings released on the Stax and Motown labels in the 1960’s.

Their debut album was tracked live off the floor a month later, during a summer heatwave in Edmonton’s True North Studios with Jesse Northey (Jesse and the Dandelions.) Contributions from multi-instrumentalist Elijah Abrams followed, with mixes and co-production by Toronto- based pedal steel guru Aaron Goldstein, along with Kenneth Meehan (Daniel Romano) and the singalong single ‘So Good’ mixed by Brooklyn’s prodigious hit-makers Gus van Go and Werner F.

Two songs from this album have already been lauded for their song-craft. ‘Motherland’ — written essentially as a love-letter to Alberta — won a province wide songwriting contest in 2015 through the ATB competition, to the tune of $10,000; and the powerful ballad ‘I Love All Of You’ is a finalist in the Unsigned Only International Songwriting Competition for 2017.

These songs thrive at the intersection between Brown’s resonant vocal expression and SRTA’s spirited swagger. It is music to move body and soul.
