Altered By Mom
Some brave musicians set themselves the difficult task of completing a new song every month. That’s just not enough for Toronto’s favourite overachieving indie-rock darlings Altered By Mom, who released one original song per week for all of 2020. That’s a total of 52 new songs, all available across digital platforms!
The resulting (and appropriately-titled) collection 52 SONGS (2021) demonstrates a knack for infectious melodies, classic songwriting, and a quirky sense of humour. “Turns out when you have to write what feels like a million songs, you get some gold and some fool’s gold”, said singer and multi-instrumentalist Gina Kennedy.
“We were lucky enough to be self-isolating with a recording studio and a bunch of instruments”, said producer Devon Lougheed. The multi-instrumentalist duo recorded and mixed everything from their studio in Little Italy.
Fans of emerging Canadian artists may recognize Kennedy and Lougheed from other acts like Hey Ocean!, Skye Wallace Band, and Monowhales. The duo have been releasing music together as Altered By Mom since 2016.
