With their infectious mix of styles and compelling vocal blend, Gathering Sparks made some big waves with their debut 6-song CD. It was nominated for a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, and they quickly became an audience favourite. Their full-length album, All That's Real, was released in September 2019 on Borealis Records. The lead track won 2019's Songs From the Heart Award from Folk Music Ontario in the singer-songwriter category.
Whether they are belting it out a capella style, tugging on your heartstrings with a folky original, crooning a jazzy swing tune, or getting into the spirit with a gospel-inflected singalong, Gathering Sparks performances make fans out of listeners with their stellar harmonies and fine musicianship.
"Phenomenal songs binding the individual skills of its members together as one with rich, honeyed harmonies."
