MONTREAL PSYCH FOLK/AMERICANA SONGWRITER ORA COGAN ANNOUNCES UPCOMING RECORD CRICKETS + FALL TOUR DATES
Ora Cogan combines the intricate guitar picking of Americana with Psychedelic dreamscapes, drawing comparisons to 70’s folk legend Karen Dalton. She has shared the stage with the likes of Grouper & Hope Sandoval while touring extensively in North America, Europe and the UK.
Cogan’s new offering Crickets was recorded and co-produced with Tom Deis (Uni Ika Ai) in Philadelphia. The album inhabits a place between psychedelic folk, dark wave ambient and experimental dream pop, featuring percussionist Dani Markham (TuneYards, Childish Gambino), violinist Russel Kotcher (Chamber Orchestra of NY), and background vocalist Maia Friedman (Uni Ika Ai).
Cogan became a part of Vancouver’s eclectic music scene as a teen. She has collaborated with a multitude of artists including Frazey Ford, Indigenous performance artist Skeena Reece and Austrian Electro-Acoustic artist Daniel Lercher and has performed at Internationally acclaimed festivals such as Treefort, Sled Island, Serralves Festival in Portugal and Torstraßen Festival in Berlin.
Cogan’s forthcoming LP Crickets will be released November 10th, 2017 worldwide by Hand Drawn Dracula, preorder available here.
