The Weather Station is the musical vehicle for Toronto artist Tamara Lindeman who plays live at the De la Warr Pavilion in the cafe bar on Wednesday August 24.
The gig is co-presented by DLWP with Music’s Not Dead, and will be in the evening with doors open from 7.30pm; tickets cost £10.50.
Tamara’s third and finest album yet, Loyalty was recorded in France in the winter of 2014. The record crystallizes into eleven emotionally charged vignettes and intimate portraits, redolent of fellow Canadians Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and David Wiffen, but utterly Tamara’s own.
All Of It Was Mine (2011), released on Canadian label You’ve Changed Records, found admirers around the world among both audiences and critics. Lindeman toured extensively playing shows and festivals across both North America and Japan.
She has also been in demand as collaborator, appearing on records by Doug Paisley, Field Report, Will Stratton, Siskiyou, and Daniel Romano, among others.
Her series of recorded duets with Toronto-area songwriters was nominated for the 2013 SOCAN songwriting prize. The Weather Station’s acclaimed 2014 EP What Am I Going to Do With Everything I Know features contributions by members of Hiss Golden Messenger and Megafaun.
Though she is an extraordinary singer and instrumentalist, Lindeman has always been a songwriter’s songwriter, earning accolades for her delicate, carefully worded verse, filled with double meanings, ambiguities, and complex metaphors.
Outside her musical practice, she also happens to be an accomplished film and television actor, but it’s her directorial eye for quietly compelling characters and the rich details of the everyday, Bressonian in its specificity and scope, that drives the limpid singularity of The Weather Station’s songs.
A reviewer commented: “Built from blocks of bluegrass, British balladry, and country sadness...Lindeman’s voice flits and cracks, peaks and valleys, comforts and cries...clenching truth like a catch in the throat.”
