“Remember that time you stumbled into a club by accident and there was a singer on stage who immediately wowed you? Darcy’s that kind of singer.”

– BOB MERSEREAU, CBC.

“A comforting country sound resonates throughout…Darcy’s honest lyrics are indicative of the classic country song”

My new EP "Atlantic Tramps Live" is available now on all major streaming platforms, and also the 3 accompanying music videos which captured the performances in front of an attentive live audience! It's a taster of what to expect from the sophomore studio album which is also in the works, a Celtic/Americana collaboration featuring mostly original material along with a few old traditional folk songs re-imagined.

My good friend & fellow Atlantic Tramp James McKie has a fantastic sea shanty band called Pressgang Mutiny and they just released their new album today! Check it out now, give their page a follow and enjoy these great songs and beautiful harmonies. šŸ‘Across the Western Ocean, the latest album by Pressgang Mutiny is available as of today! The album balances the tight harmonies and ruggedness that has made them a festival favourite across Canada, the US, and Europe. This recording is a fresh and relevant take on sea music, combining traditional shanty work songs with contemporary pieces by Jonathan Byrd, Martin Green, and Jack Forbes. The album will be live across all major digital platforms as well as available through the Pressgang Mutiny website at pressgangmutiny.com. “Now here’s a crew I would sign on with for a rollick ‘round the Horn. In a heartbeat. The boys are leaning into the capstan on this voyage of a CD. A wonderful collection of shanties, both old and new to me, that I’ll be listening to until I have parts for all of them. Here’s wishing Pressgang Mutiny fair winds and calm seas to launch this excellent record. Roll away, Boys, Roll away!” – David Francey, three time Juno and CFMA winner. “This collection of sea shanties and river songs--all sung in powerful acapella harmony--is a gutsy recording that deserves to break out of its niche market. The lads of Pressgang Mutiny are fine singers and they strike the perfect elusive balance between rough seafaring authenticity and fine, engaging musicianship.” – Ian Robb, Singer, CFMA Best Traditional Singer winner 2005. “A magnificent album, the best new album I have heard in a long time.” – Jim Mageean, internationally-renowned shantyman. “Across the Western Ocean is a terrific mix of traditional and contemporary songs. They're all presented in tight acapella arrangements that invite you to sing along, but include enough musical surprises to keep you listening. It's always fun hanging out with Pressgang Mutiny. Across the Western Ocean is a great way to do it when they're not around.” – Ian Bell, Musician, Composer, and Singer-songwriter. https://open.spotify.com/album/7sK8eZCpSP8zHzEO0Bxq1B https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/pressgang-mutiny/1131731476 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvD-6cHBvPo&list=PLjDytLKaQYCAmEoDu8G3zuMwuNXImgMz6 https://pressgangmutiny.bandcamp.com/ https://soundcloud.com/pressgangmutiny #seashanties #seashanty #folkmusic #traditionalmusic #canadianmusic #torontomusic #newmusic #albumrelease #cdrelease #tallships #nautical See Less — in Toronto, Ontario. ...
