Frontperson

Frontperson is the new project from Kathryn Calder (vocalist and keyboardist for The New Pornographers) and Mark Andrew Hamilton (who has released 6 albums as Woodpigeon). They’re joined by Melissa McWilliams (drums, drum machine), Jen Sévertson (bass, also of Peach Pyramid), Clea Foofat (cello, also of Raleigh and Dojo Workhorse), Foon Yap (violin), Marek Tyler (percussion, also of nêhiyawak), and producer Colin Stewart (The Cave Singers, Dan Mangan, Black Mountain).

The songs of Frontrunner make for an auspicious debut, forging a union between two of Canada’s finest songwriters. Be it Calder’s fluttering vocals on ‘Young Love’, the crashing percussion and crumbling instruments of ‘The City is Mine’, the hushed and pulsing elegy of ‘Insight’ or the layered queer epic ‘He Follows Me’, Frontrunner marks Frontperson’s musical territory as unique and altogether new.
