it's a good time for swimming, the water is mighty willing.


Summer is here, and we're beyond thrilled to share this BRAND NEW RECORD from PUGS AND CROWS. Featuring Marin Patenaude on vocals, this record is a journey of love and loss and it's like nothing you've ever heard before. Check out the calendar for upcoming shows!

“Maybe it’s Patenaude’s clear and understated voice; maybe it’s her piano’s repeating phrases, and their small variations; maybe it’s how the notes of the simple melody correspond to the emotionally evocative lyrics. Most likely it’s all those things dovetailed together. The music is a very personal and poetic blend of jazz, country, blues, and folk.”

Thanks to Tony Montague of The Georgia Straight for this lovely profile

Marin Patenaude aims to keep her music honest

Listening to Marin Patenaude sing "Tall Thin Man in a Black Cheyenne" may cause that song to become lodged deep in your mind, prone to float up into consciousness at unexpected moments. Maybe it's Patenaude's clear and understated voice; maybe it's her piano's repeating phrases, and their small variations; maybe it's how the notes of the simple melody correspond to the emotionally evocative lyrics.

Really looking forward to being in so many beautiful places with so many beautiful people this summer!!

Thanks so much to Alex Varty and the Georgia Straight for this lovely little article!

"Her music, after all, is like life itself – there is sorrow, pain and dark reflection, but at the end of the day if you can’t have fun then what’s the point?" - Mark Brennan

 Really looking forward to playing this show with Cole Schmidt and Peggy Lee - Opening for Handmade Blade and Thus Owls from Montreal - January 19th at the Wise Hall.
