Megan Nash and Bears in Hazenmore Team Up for Tour, Share New Track
Published Oct 06, 2016Some of Saskatchewan's finest musical minds are teaming up this fall. Singer-songwriter Megan Nash and Regina-based band Bears in Hazenmore will embark on a tour of Canada together, and before they hit the road, they've shared a brand new collaborative single.
The string of shows kicks off on October 22 in Winnipeg and will wind its way through Ontario, hitting as far east as Montreal before wrapping back around and closing things off in Windsor on October 30. Bears in Hazenmore will be playing an opening set of their own original material, in addition to accompanying Nash onstage as her backing band.
To get an idea of what the musicians sound like together, Exclaim! is bringing you the premiere of their joint track "Wait." The song originally appeared on Nash's 2015 album Song Harvest Volume One, but has now been reworked to feature the "eclectic musicianship" of Bears in Hazenmore.
"Inspired by messy mistakes, I wrote 'Wait' in 2014 and included a live-off-the-floor version for my album Song Harvest Volume One," Nash tells Exclaim! "This song begged to have a full band behind it, and it was one of the first tracks that Bears in Hazenmore and I worked out together. When the idea to go into the studio came up, "Wait" was a strong candidate."
Attendees at the upcoming shows can expect plenty more revamped renditions of cuts off of that same record. Following the fall tour, both Nash and Bears in Hazenmore have plans to hit the studio respectively, and record more original material.
For now, though, see all the shows they'll be playing together listed below, then hit play to hear their new version of "Wait."
