EMBASSYLIGHTS – Embassylights (2014)

 Reykjavik+Calgary = Nema greske!

Featuring the collaborative prowess of four of Calgary’s finest indie musicians working in tandem with two of Reykjavik’s most intriguing up-and-comers, EMBASSYLIGHTS captures a talent exchange unlike any experienced by either city before.

EMBASSYLIGHTS is a new collaborative project from Woodpigeon’s Mark Andrew Hamilton alongside fellow Calgary natives Samantha Savage Smith, Clinton St. John, and Laura Leif, paired with two of Reykjavik’s most intriguing songsmiths Benni Hemm Hemm and Prins Póló.

 The ensemble boasts a talent exchange between six distinct personalities built through a residency exchange retreat in Reykjavik, Iceland, then recorded by Graham Lessard (Kevin Drew’s Darlings, Timber Timbre’s Hot Dreams) at the Banff Centre for the Performing Arts.EMBASSYLIGHTS will be releasing their album on Tuesday October 28 to coincide with their first official performances at the Iceland Airwaves festival in Reykjavik, Iceland, running November 5-9. The album will be released as an extremely limited run of coil-bound flexi-disc books, available only via the Boompa online store and selected boutique outlets. EMBASSYLIGHTS is also available across digital music platforms internationally.
