With a series of singles from Toronto-based songwriter Eamon McGrath‘s upcoming full-length album Bells of Hope that began last fall with “Sparkle & Bleed” and continued into spring of this year with the melancholic “April”, McGrath is now launching “Cannonball” to continue to offer a preview of what’s to come.

Featuring the immaculate and haunting voice of Edmonton-based singer/songwriter Cayley Thomas, “Cannonball” is an ode to some of McGrath‘s most country-oriented influences. Originally hailing from the Canadian prairies, the ghostly voices of classic Americana have played a hugely important role in the shaping of McGrath‘s sound, as vital and formative as the more ragged and savage underground punk rock communities he long ago cut his teeth in.
