Product Notes

Canada boasts a long and proud tradition of excellent female singer-songwriters. From legendary artists like Joni Mitchell and Buffy Sainte-Marie to contemporary stars such as Kathleen Edwards and Feist, Canadian women have conquered the world with song. Folk music in particular has proven to be a genre from which many key Canadian female artists have arisen, and on the strength of her debut release, Honey Whistle, Nanaimo's Cali Massey could well be another. Vocally reminiscent of fellow Canadians Amelia Curran and Catherine McLellan, with jazzy echoes of Norah Jones, Massey is a songwriter approaching her subject matter from fascinating angles. Take the title track, Honey Whistle, for example, where the flirtatious lyrics present romantic imagery about the man in her life. It is this attention to detail, the unmistakable approach of a visual artist, identifying Massey as a unique talent. And to this end, having studied for four years at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver, it comes as no surprise that she is also an accomplished painter. Massey started playing music relatively late, at 27-years -old, and after drifting in and out of music as life took her down various paths she eventually met singer-songwriter-guitarist Bezooyen. They clicked immediately. "He's Paul to my John!" says Massey of Bezooyen. "Everything is really effortless with Paul. I guess we used to play in the same sandbox as kids, because we pick the same colours and the same tools, and we speak the same language." Bezooyen contributed arrangements and instrumentation to Honey Whistle, saying of their collaborative energy: "It's a real chemistry thing, a real compatibility. Our personalities and decisions and the ethics around what we're creating have all this common ground." Whether melancholy or bouncy and playful, Massey and Bezooyen's songs all explore the human condition and, as Massey intends, are all gifts to her listeners. "It's really important to me that music is a gift all the time," she says, "so whatever I'm writing about it has to be a shared thing."
