Event Description
BRIA

Led by the brooding vocals of Bria Salmena, Cuntry Covers Vol. 2 is every bit as potent as its predecessor. Encompassing feverish takes on tracks by Gillian Welch, Paula Cole, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Robert Lester Folsom, Glen Campbell – by way of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – and the late, great Loretta Lynn, Bria’s homage shimmers through in six startling songs. 

The languid, reverb-drenched Cuntry Covers Vol. 1 saw her collaborating with multi-instrumentalist Duncan Hay Jennings, and reimagining a carefully picked collection of Americana anthems which stood in sharp contrast to the singer's commanding delivery as leader of post-punk revivalists FRIGS. Building on the tried-and-true/bold-and-new duality of Cuntry Covers’ first offering, Vol. 2 delivers a deeper dive into the duo’s brilliant alchemy of traditional and contemporary reinterpretations. 

Created during a break from Salmena and Jennings’ touring schedule as permanent members of Orville Peck’s band, Cuntry Covers Vol. 2 was recorded in their makeshift home studio in Toronto, with the help of local musicians Lucas Savatti (FRIGS), Simone Baril (U.S. Girls, The Highest Order, Darlene Shrugg, Partner), Andrew Manktelow, and frequent collaborator Jaime Rae McCuaig.
