THE ONCE – We Win Some We Lose

It's no secret we'd put Newfoundland trio THE ONCE on every list of greatness, so we were well and truly confident when we put them on our 2016 Ones to Watch list... and they did not disappoint!

the-once-we-win-some-we-loseOne of the many reasons they made it - the release of their highly anticipated new album WE WIN SOME WE LOSE.

With award-winning, PEI born producer Daniel Ledwell at the helm - from his Lake Echo Studio -Geradline Hollett, Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale have made magic again to be sure of it.

"The Once along with the incomparable Daniel Ledwell traverse the gentle war between the heart and the head with sonic simplicity and harmonious ease on their latest release, We Win Some We Lose.

click-my-nose-2016It is a creation that is both epic and minute in it's scope and execution; it holds closely everything the band has been since its genesis while allowing serious strides forward in poetry and play.

We Win Some We Lose explores the length of life in meek moments that mark the depths of gain within loss. It is an anthemic ode to the ‘good hurt.’ Lie down and listen."

A big salute to the multi-talented Mr.Tom Cochrane for the lovely lyric video for "We Are Love" above.

The group had a busy autumn following the October release - with dates all over Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, not to mention multiple shows as part of Cape Breton's 20th Annual Celtic Colours International Festival too.


THE ONCE are winding down this wonderfully successful year at home, with their annual Christmas Concert Tour complete with shows in Brigus, Corner Brook and St.John's.  As you might imagine tickets are in high demand - so much so that their 3 sold out shows in St.John's has led to them add a 4th - a matinee on Sunday, December 18th - just don't wait to get tickets for that!
