Patrick Watson @ The Glen Gould Studio, Toronto.

Recently, a few of us here at Yangaroo/DMDS were fortunate enough to be invited by our friends at EMI Music Canada to a private performance of the Polaris Prize winning Patrick Watson at the historic Glen Gould Studio in downtown Toronto.

Watson's five piece ensemble and guests performed the songs - in order - from their recently released 3rd studio album "Adventures in Your Own Backyard." Now we must admit, we knew Mr. Watson was a talented artist, but we were all blown away by the seemingly effortless musicianship exhibited by all players - especially the very creative percussionist - and the ethereal atmosphere created by the performance and music. The standing ovation and buzz heard from the crowd after encore performances of "Luscious Life" and "Big Bird in a Small Cage" leads us to believe we weren't the only new Patrick Watson fans leaving the theatre that night.

Some of the performances video-recorded by CBC Music are now up on the Youtubes. Enjoy!
