Erin and Larry’s musical abilities are tools of exacting expression, expertly honed. They reach in to resonate; calling the listener inside, sounding the overtones of our shared experience.
Erin and Larry’s album, We Want All the Same Things, is their long-awaited second release, following their 2012 debut stunner, Courage, My Love (2012). Courage was met with praise, winning Best Jazz Album of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards (2013), and a JUNO nomination in the category of Vocal Jazz Album of the Year (2014).
We Want All the Same Things is a new pinnacle of startling beauty and musical insight from the Winnipeg duo. With this release, Erin Propp and Larry Roy have created a soundscape that contrasts what we see in the world today. This music speaks to the listener with songs that are powerful but not aggressive, and diverse without being in conflict. Erin and Larry’s songs explore the facets of people living alongside one another – the ease and adversity within mutualism, and ultimately the true privilege it is to struggle through life together.
