Nick Ferrio is a Canadian songwriter working in country and folk music. His sophomore album, entitled Amongst the Coyotes and Birdsongs examines the ferociousness of love.
Amongst the Coyotes and Birdsongs is a subtle, understated and confident collection of songs. Recorded partially in Sackville, NB and partially in Toronto, ON with producer Gavin Gardiner (The Wooden Sky), the album features collaborations with Julie Doiron, Tamara Lindeman (The Weather Station), Steve Lambke (Constantines), Ian Kehoe (Marine Dreams) and Evening Hymns. Building on his previous releases Introducing Nick Ferrio & His Feelings and Half the Time, Ferrio has come into his own with Amongst the Coyotes and Birdsongs, offering catchy and sophisticated songs, and claiming his place as one of Canada's best kept secrets.
The album will be co-released in Canada on May 28, 2015 on Headless Owl Records and Shuffling Feet Records.
