...the label, that is. Canadien singer-songwriter Gentleman Reg
(a.k.a Reg Vermue
) has signed with Canadien label Arts & Crafts
. We all love stuff coming out of Canada these days, and GR is no different: refreshing indie-pop, with jang-ly guitars, tambourines, and tunes on the cusp of radio-friendly without being too top-40 for the scene.
Reg will spend Thursday night impressing the New York crowd at The Mercury Lounge
, supporting Broken Social Scene Presents: Brendan Canning's CD Release. He's been a guest vocalist for BSS, so it's no surprise he'll be making an appearance at Siren Fest
this weekend. Maybe we'll bump into him (we'll be there too!).For now, we'll look forward to the soon-ish release of Jet Black
, his next record (and his first release in the US). -joe puglisi
Catch Gentleman Reg this Thursday at The Mercury Lounge!
