Tribute to Tom Harrison

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Tom Harrison.

As many of the countless tributes from fellow musicians have already expressed, Tom’s impact on the Vancouver music scene was incalculably vast. For our band, his support was career-altering; there is no doubt that he was instrumental in helping The Grapes sign to a major record label.

In 1986, the A&R team from Capitol-EMI Records was in Vancouver to check out a local band. During a set break, Tom suggested they visit the Savoy Club in Gastown to catch some of our show. That was the night that the ball got rolling, with us eventually being signed directly to Capitol.

In the following years, Tom consistently supported us, with positive album and concert reviews, as well as features in local papers. It was always great to run into him at a local bar, have a drink and discuss music; his knowledge being very deep. He was such a champion of the Vancouver music scene-an enthusiastic pioneer especially when indie bands needed all the exposure they could get.

Thanks again Tom.

See you all at the Gateway Festival in Bengough, Saskatchewan July 23rd.

Former EMI Music Canada President Deane Cameron Dies at 65

The Grapes Of Wrath are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former Capital/EMI president, Deane Cameron. We first met Deane in 1986, when he had come to Vancouver to check out another band and during a break between sets, wandered down the street to the little club we were playing at. Deane immediately understood what we were trying to do as a band, and once we were signed to the label he allowed us the artistic freedom we needed to develop our music and then championed the results to the rest of the EMI family worldwide, resulting in international releases and numerous US and European tours. As anyone who knew him will attest, Deane truly believed in the power of music and its ability to transform lives, and he cared about the people who were making the music as well. Thanks for everything, Deane.

Listen to CBC Brave New Waves sessions

Listen to CBC Brave New Waves sessions album on Spotify. Enjoy!
Listen on Spotify

On one of the earliest Brave New Waves sessions, The Grapes of Wrath performed cuts from their then-new Treehouse album, adding cover versions to kick things off in Studio 13, Montreal. A few years later, they would be invited once again to do an acoustic set, this time in promotion of the 1991 album These Days.

The CBC sessions capture the Grapes in their youth, full of energy and excitement, with a jam-like quality to the music that is less apparent on the album versions. The sessions have never been released commercially.

The Grapes of Wrath formed in 1983 and signed to Nettwerk Records the following year. Their albums Treehouse, Now & Again, These Days and the 2013 High Road are classics in Canadian rock, spawning such hits as “Peace of Mind” and “I Am Here.”

The Grapes of Wrath’s Brave New Waves Session was recorded on May 25th, 1988. The recording is taken from the original CBC Archives’ tape and remastered at Grey Market Mastering in Montreal, by Harris Newman.
