Bry Webb's 'Provider' Released in the U.S.

by Dave Bloom

1 October 2012

 

Ex-Constantines frontman Bry Webb brought down the volume considerably on his mostly acoustic solo debut Provider, but still managed to stir up a fair bit of excitement with its Canada-only release in 2011. On October 2nd, Idée Fixe will give U.S. Constantines fans the chance to hear Webb in low-key mode when it releases the album stateside. Long-listed for the 2012 Polaris Prize and praised by PopMatters’ Zachary Houle as “a stunning and revealing record full of worldly insight”, Provider is a surprising turn from Webb’s old work, but not an unwelcome one. Webb will also tour the U.S. in support of the release.
