New Album - March 2018
I'm so excited to be releasing my new album 'End Zone'. No, it's not about football. Most of the material for 'End Zone' was written during the last months of my mother's life, and the title track is an exploration of that time when the end is near, but not quite.
The album features a bunch of new songs and a guest cast of Canadian acoustic innovators, including Andrew Collins on mandolin and guitar, Max Heineman on upright bass and vocals, Sarah Hamilton on fiddle and vocals, John Showman and Trent Freeman on fiddle, Frank Evans on banjo, Burke Carroll on pedal steel, and Ivan Rosenberg on dobro. Produced by Andrew Collins.
Real, raw, and deeply honest, this album is dear to my heart, and I can't wait to share it with you.
“Genest’s remarkable songwriting…move across a range of emotions and each evokes the right texture.”
