Major Love

MAJOR LOVE is the moniker of Canadian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Colleen Brown - and a new album featuring members of Scenic Route To Alaska, Jesse & the Dandelions, Elijah Abrams and producer Aaron Goldstein (Daniel Romano, Altameda). From Edmonton, Alberta by way of Kingston, Ontario, they've made an album of 'soulful pop-rock music for their hoser friends’. With versatile songs and a voice akin to Joni Mitchell, Colleen Brown is relentlessly unafraid. In 2015 she released her 4th solo studio album ‘Direction’ - co-produced by Joel Plaskett - topping college radio charts, and touring Canada, Germany and the UK. Kerry Doole of exclaim.ca says, "she is the rare vocalist that impresses equally on vibrant soul and quiet folk...traveling in Brown's Direction is one very pleasing trek."  The self-titled debut album by Major Love will be released on Cowboy Junkies' imprint Latent Recordings Aug 24, 2018. The first two singles 'Tear It Down' and 'So Good' both charted on CBC Radio 2 Top 20.
