Rae Spoon Coming for You at Gallery Connexion

Posted on December 2, 2010 by


Canadian queer songwriter and performer Rae Spoon comes to the Gallery Connexion Saturday, 29 January, 2011. The Gallery Connexion is at 440 York Street, Fredericton, also the home of the newly opened queer Qultural Centre. Look for an upcoming interview with Rae Spoon in the Fredericton Queery soon.

Touring with his new CD, Love is a Hunter (Saved By Radio/Vinyl, Aug. 2010), Rae Spoon is both the hunter and the hunted. His latest album is a pop-infused exploration of identity, contradiction and longing.

Heavily inspired by an extensive period spent in Europe, Spoon examines the various shades of love found everywhere from the club to the internal monsters within.

Recorded with Lorrie Matheson in Calgary, Alberta, Love Is A Hunter is Spoon’s most danceable release yet. He continues to navigate through uncharted terrain, blurring musical genres, lyrical lines and electro-infused beats.

As a former country crooner with previous releases: Throw Some Dirt On Me (2003), Your Trailer Door (2005), White Hearse Comes Rolling (2006) and the exploration of Canada and colonialism on Polaris nominated Superioryouareinferior (2008), Spoon shifts focus to love found beneath disco balls and the quest for belonging and community.
