Phase Of The Moon is the new offering from Toronto singer-songwriter Matthew Barber on the Outside Music label. Following his Gary Louris-produced Big Romance (2014) and Juno-nominated collaboration with sister Jill on The Family Album (2016), Phase Of The Moon marks Barbers confident return to producing himself, with veteran Ken Friesen (The Tragically Hip, Carly Rae Jepsen, Gordon Lightfoot) handling the engineering duties. The songs on Phase Of The Moon were mostly written in a tiny studio apartment in Paris where Matthew and his wife spent a month in early 2017. It came with a small upright piano and had thin walls, which could explain why piano songs sung in deeper, hushed tones feature prominently on the record. The winter sojourn in Europe provided a welcome respite from the all-consuming media madness back home, and coupled with a steady diet of existentialist reading material, served to foster a mood of almost contented melancholy that seeped into the songs and runs throughout the record. – 2 time JUNO nominee – 100,000 albums sold worldwide / over 10 million streams – Matthew Barber is one of Canada’s most prolific singer-songwriters, releasing nine acclaimed albums and composing original scores for two award winning theatre productions – Has licensed his music in various film/TV productions including Hockey Night In Canada, Heartland, Continuum, Lost Girl, and more. – Albums have been featured/earned glowing reviews in the Wall Street Journal, RollingStone, No Depression, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, CBC – 4 time Canadian Folk Music Award winner – Music video asset for lead single off Phase Of The Moon, Back to You by award winning video director Chris Mills (Leonard Cohen, Metric, Blue Rodeo) – Most recent release, The Family Album, debuted at #39 on the Top 200 chart, received heavy rotation from CBC Radio 2, CBC First Play Live Videos – March 2018 tour with White Buffalo
