Abigail Lapell Live at Cafe Wha? | Thursday, June 6th | 6PM DOORS, 7PM SHOW | Two Item Minimum Per Person

Toronto songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Abigail Lapell returns with Anniversary, an

evocative collection of original love songs. Produced with Great Lake Swimmers’ Tony

Dekker, the album was recorded at 200-year-old St Mark’s Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake,

Ontario. Dekker helped shape the sessions’ spooky, resonant sound and also lent his voice

to a couple of spellbinding duets. Lapell’s deft lyrics jostle with love song tropes, grappling

with love’s finitude and the irony of how codependency and longing are revered in popular

music. Balancing upbeat earworms with elegiac ballads, Anniversary ultimately emerges as

an earnest celebration of commitment. A stellar cast of musicians rounds out Lapell’s

powerhouse vocals, piano, harmonica and fingerstyle guitar. The ensemble’s sensitive

orchestral country-jazz arrangements feature bass, drums, viola, trumpet and pedal steel

along with the church’s own harpsichord and organ. Anniversary is out May 10, 2024 on

Outside Music.
