Oh My Darling
Album Audio Streams
Basia Bulat hails from the forest city of London, Ontario, where she found her songs and stories dangling from the trees. Her debut album Oh, My Darling was engineered and produced by Howard Bilerman (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Arcade Fire, upcoming British Sea Power), and will be released on Rough Trade Records in the UK and Europe on 21st May of 2007.
Basia's songs are infused with sweet ragtime piano melodies, tender-hearted string arrangements, and a voice that has been compared to Elyse Weinberg and Leslie Feist. Together with her backing band, Basia has begun bringing her unique blend of folk and chamber pop to audiences across Canada and she'll be coming over to play her first shows in the UK in May.
