Canadian multi-platinum-selling rockers Big Wreck return with Grace Street, an album that continues to build on the creative momentum of their two previous JUNO Award-nominated releases, Ghosts and Albatross. Featuring guitar virtuoso and lead-singer Ian Thornley, and co-produced by Garth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers), the sonic diversity on Grace Street is indeed stunning. Heavy grooving tracks such as lead-off single 'One Good Piece of Me' and 'Digging In' rub shoulders with the atmospheric 'A Speedy Recovery' and the epic seven-minute instrumental 'Skybunk Marché.' Other tracks feature added touches, such as Miles Davis-style muted trumpet, wine glasses, a sample of a child's heartbeat and a Leslie speaker guitar solo recorded on a mountainside adjacent to Richardson's B.C. studio. At the core of Grace Street are live, off-the-floor performances by founding front man Ian Thornley on guitar and keyboards, accompanied by drummer Chuck Keeping and bassist Dave McMillan. Thornley placed a real focus on maintaining the human element in every aspect of the sessions, resulting in a journey on which no previous Big Wreck album has taken its listeners. As Guitar Player Magazine proclaimed, 'All of Canada is not big enough to contain Thornley's talent.'
