Canadian label and music publisher Aporia Records joins Altavoz’s growing roster of label partners for distribution services in the U.S. Aporia’s catalog of acts includes: Grapes Of Wrath, Julie Doiron, Donovan Woods, Lily Frost, Foam Lake, Dustin Bentall & The Smøkes, Anna Atkinson, Shoot The Image, Morgan Doctor, Catlow, Madrid, The Coast, Girl + The Machine and many more.
“We are so pleased to be in partnership with Aporia records and their stellar team. We expect their artists to thrive here in the U.S. market and can’t wait to get to work putting their product in stores across the country,” said Nelson Jacobsen, Altavoz CEO.
With a voice as notable as his lyrics, Donovan Woods is widely recognized as an acclaimed recording artist, performer and an in-demand country and folk songwriter from Toronto to Nashville. Woods’ third album Don’t Get Too Grand will be released in the U.S. in late Fall.
So Many Days is the latest installment in the discography from Julie Doiron, one of Canada’s most acclaimed and persevering songwriters. Twenty years on the road, one Juno award, countless songwriting, recording and live collaborations, her thirteenth solo outing, due out in the U.S. in late Fall, documents a life in constant transition evident in the urgent but poignant songwriting.
Aporia Records was founded in late 1999 within a community of local Toronto bands and low-power campus radio. Rather than focus on a specific genre, Aporia’s mandate is to embrace artists who share a common aesthetic that eschews disposable music in favor of repertoire you can connect with on a deeper, more emotional level. In short, Aporia is about the journey of discovering good music that you’ll want to share with others. Over the past twelve+ years, Aporia has developed a strong reputation for presenting artists who successfully combine pop melodies with varying degrees of sonic experimentation.
