THE SMALL GLORIES
The Small Glories are a brand new musical union between folk/roots artists Cara Luft and JD Edwards. Based in Winnipeg, a city well-known for its long history of remarkable musical talent, the duo is already creating a buzz, with fans and promoters eager to hear the recorded result of their collaboration. June 2014 saw them head into the studio with producer Neil Osborne, recording an album’s worth of original and traditional material, with a focus on their dynamic and powerful vocal blend and harmonies.
What started as a casual friendship has turned into something quite unexpected and extremely magical, all thanks to the artistic director of one of Western Canada’s premiere live music venues, Winnipeg’s West End Cultural Centre. JD and Cara were partnered together for the venue’s 25th anniversary concert in October 2012, and they stole the show. Alas with busy tour schedules and side projects, thoughts of pursuing anything further were put on hold until January 2014, when Cara asked JD to join her on a winter tour. The two received such intense praise from presenters and fans alike that they decided it was time to take the plunge. Their abilities as both strong lead and harmony singers, their shared history of growing up singing in musical families, combined with their songwriting prowess and musical chops all contribute to the uniqueness of this partnership.
