The sophomore release from Halifax, Nova Scotia's own Brit-in-residence Tim Crabtree focuses on starting again, getting your head down and pushing forward. The self-produced album combines disparate musical elements cohesively beneath a voice that will draw you in, put you to bed and spit you out. As an album concerned with pushing through, the genesis of Go On was appropriately long and demanding. Set in motion in London, Ontario in early 2013 with engineer Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes), Crabtree, taking burgeoning first steps as producer, took the freedom and time to figure out just the right player and just the right studio for every part for every song. Tracks were bounced around and added to in Montreal, New York, Nova Scotia, Toronto, New York and even at the family home studio in rural Lancashire. When everything was ripe, Crabtree meticulously picked through all the strands and wove them together with mix engineer Graeme Campbell (Buck 65, Rich Aucoin). "Go On is a stunning achievement" - NOW Toronto "Go On is a demonstration of Crabtree's unique ability to use classical and electronic elements to blur the lines of folk music and leave you breathless." - Exclaim!
