about

Faith and Cola are not two words you often see in the same sentence. Faith is often considered a balm for the spirit and Cola an elixir for the body, the two put together, result in a raucous, rejuvenating potion. The Sisters Euclid new CD, Faith Cola dispenses this brew in sonic form, with equal amounts of their legendary group interplay and added ingredients namely, guests like Jane Bunnett, Cellist Matt Brubeck, Sax players Perry White and Alex Dean, accordionist Dennis Keldie, singer Julie Crochetiere and soundscapist Nic Murray.
Recorded it in 2 days at Canterbury Sound Studios, in downtown Toronto, served as the plant for distilling performance and collaboration into a sound that captures the essence of both. 
The CDs opening track, Faith Cola stakes its claim with an anthemic slide guitar intro and muscular groove calling upon invisible legions to raise their fists, not in anger or protest, but for the sake of hope. 
In fact hope is the common theme throughout the recording, the cover of Charlie Parker's Donna Lee (as a waltz) featuring the evocative voice and narrative of Julie Crochetiere and Jason Jackson. It casts the listener as audience in an intimate play of a lovers' spat that ends in delicious reconciliation somewhere on the rive gauche. Sunday Best delivers like an inner city church sermon, equal parts fiery grit and elegance. 

Faith Cola is the Sisters Euclid subversive prescription against the safe, tried and true. 

*To be taken without warning and in large doses.
