New Open Mind CD + Release Party

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut, the recently reunited Hamilton duo (Chantal Chamberland and Cynthia Kerr), Open Mind released Over Oceans - a wonderful disc of reworked classics and new songs.

This is their first recording in 16 years. The title is an apt one as it was recorded across continents (Kerr is now based in Australia) using the latest technology.

The end result isn't cold and mechanical though. Each song has the great pop/folk sound the band was famous for in the 1990s. It runs the gamut from catchy (Why, Open Hands) to soft and sweet (Touch the Water, Wishful Thinking), and everything in between. There are even a few middle eastern and Spanish elements in the mix as well.

Click here for song samples from the album.

The disc is available at CD Baby and iTunes.

Below are videos from the CD release at the Westside Concert Theatre on June 26, 2010. They were joined by Dan Lockwood (drums), Mark McIntyre (bass), Amy King (keyboards), and Bob Doidge (guitar/percussion).
