Taivi (from the album Rising Tide available on )
Directly addressing tumultuous times, Taivi sings support on the title track to her recent release, Rising Tide. Gentle strums and warm notes embrace inspiring words, Taivi advising to stay true to yourself as the journey towards the light of a better day is detailed on “Rising Tide”. Stirring emotions with her words, Taivi reaches into hearts and minds, joyfully heading down the Hudson river to the sound of a banjo in “The Clearwater”, feeling winter chill, her mind set ion one goal with “Get on Home”, matches a bass thump to a heartbeat for “When I’m with You”, and watches the night sky in “Red Moon Rise. Her vocal touches each tale with grace and poise, backing the stories with Folk music.
The mood for Rising Tide was defined by the world outside, Taivi deciding that ‘we are living in challenging times but this can draw people to what really matters, and lead to a new momentum and energy. The notion of a rising tide captures this for me, movement that can be imperceptible on the surface, but keeps raising us up’. Wandering on the path, Taivi tempts in “Parry Sound’, lets pumping blood find the groove in “Rock My Heart”, and provides a powerful beat, using Huck Finn as a model for freedom in “Keep on Moving”. Armed with guitar, mandolin, and piano, Taivi used different environments around the globe, recording Rising Tide in her Toronto homebase utilizing other Canadian spots in Guelph and Nova Scotia as well as Nashville, Tennessee and Frankfurt, Germany. Tenderness flicks the switch as Taivi beckons in “Turn My Light On” while she spins striking up the band with love as Rising Tide requests “One More Dance”.
