Eric Chenaux has been a creative force in Toronto underground music for the better part of two decades. He played guitar and sang in Phleg Camp and LifeLikeWeeds through the early 1990s, released his first solo record in 1996, and has recorded and performed tirelessly in Toronto for the last 15 years, both solo and with the likes of Michelle Mcadorey, Martin Arnold and Sandro Perri. He co-founded the Rat Drifting label with Arnold in 2000 and has played on several of the label’s releases, with groups like The Reveries, The Draperies, and Drumheller. From his launching point in punk-rock, Chenaux has delved deep into the language of the guitar, pursuing minimalism, improvisation, fractured folk and slack noise, among other mediations and immediacies. He also sings and writes beautifully, and it has long been a dream of ours to hear a batch of new vocal tunes. In 2005, we invited Eric to record some songs at the original Hotel2Tango in Montreal. Supported by longtime collaborators Martin Arnold and Nick Fraser, Chenaux forged a sublime 9-song album that folded his devotion to Scottish folk and pop balladry, his mastery of ‘damaged’ guitar dynamics, and his wistful, thoughtful voice into wonderfully fluid structures shaped by a trio of seasoned improvisers.
