Gillian Nicola shares new song ‘Oh Marie’ ahead of new EP

Gillian Nicola 2016

Hamilton, ON-based alt-country singer-songwriter Gillian Nicola has released a track from her forthcoming new EP.

“Oh Marie” is lifted from Nicola’s sophomore collection, No Place to Call, due for release on the 15th of April. The collection was recorded with producer Dan Hosh at Hamilton’s Catherine North Studios, then mastered by Elliott Brood’s Stephen Pitkin.

Says Gillian Nicola of the song: “‘Oh Marie’ draws directly on the idea that we often find it hard to call anyone or any place home. I’ve presented the story of a character who seemingly has everything she needs in life, but still has a sense of emptiness.

“Marie abandons it all for a new life,” she adds, “something that so many have dreamed of, but few have the courage to pull off. ‘Oh Marie’ is just as much about questioning how she could go through with her actions as it is about envying them. While at times it may be ‘pretty’, ‘No Place to Call’ is anything but that: it is charged with emotion, grit and vulnerability.”

You can take a listen to Gillian Nicola’s “Oh Marie” now via SoundCloud and watch the teaser trailer for No Place To Call below.
