On March 20, 2020, Charlottetown singer-songwriter Liam Corcoran will release Giving Tree and Other Songs, an album in two parts. Side A consists of 5 stripped-down tracks, featuring only acoustic guitar and voice. Side B goes off in all directions, including forays into indie pop, lo-fi, and classic country.
Lyric videos have been created for two of the standout tracks, representing each side of the album. “Giving Tree” can be found here:
“Flip the Tables,” by Liam Corcoran and Mark Geddes is here:
The title track is inspired by Shel Silverstein’s classic children’s book, The Giving Tree. While reading this book to his two small children night after night, Liam used the title to develop his own song which became a love letter to his home of Prince Edward Island, and a message of gratitude to his parents. Elsewhere on the record, the frustrated anthem “I’m A Wreck” has a pop-punk flare, straight-ahead rocker “Like Bobby Mac” pays tribute to a hockey hero, and the folky “Full of Surprises” tells of the transformational powers of love.
