Bermuda Waterfall is the new album from Canadian singer-songwriter and ballad composer Sean Nicholas Savage and will be released May 12th. Savage’s gift for bracing, timeless song craft and prowess as a philosopher reaches a new zenith with Bermuda Waterfall, which presents 12 tightly written pop songs packed with rich musical depths and devastating emotional gravity.
The album offers listeners the opportunity to observe the fascinating evolution of a truly one-of-a-kind artist and confident expansion of his artistic palette. ‘Darkness’ and ‘The Rat’ see cinematic piano imbued with chilling honesty. ‘Heartless’ and ‘Hands Dance’ are carried by Spanish guitars and wouldn’t feel out of place in an out of place John Hughes film, albeit a decidedly unusual one. Elsewhere, ‘Empire’ and ‘Some Things Never Die’ see Savage’s lush signature harmonies hover longingly over new romanticist soul.
Inspired by and written on tour during 2013, Savage says of the album:“bermuda waterfall= invisible action, unconscious fertilization, the subconscious master plan continuum much of the words to bermuda (which i feel is the centrepiece) were written whilst travelling between one place i loved and another place/people i loved, and trying to describe my most potent dreams related to my most potent life experiences. there was a feeling of disappointment in communication with the people that i’m calling out to connect with through my performances and travels in the last year, a feeling of loneliness.
full of yin and yang, and just sitting back and taking a look at my life, something i’m happy with, and came naturally in the words of which i intended for the first time nothing. i’ll have to wait a few years before i understand exactly whats going on in the record, in this time in my life, and i’m alright with that, cos i’m into mystery.”
