Original songs in this set from the Canadian artist are accompanied visually by a series of excerpts from the classic silent film, "The General" -- a celebration of Buster Keaton's genius.
Allison Crowe enjoys working with today's film directors -- this year, Tom Anton on "The Pardon", and Zack Snyder for "Man of Steel" -- and their amazing production teams.
Via online videos, there's now opportunity for artistry and fun to combine music and movies from an earlier era.
"Heavy Graces", an album which includes new songs from the pen and soul of Allison Crowe, alongside her interpretations of tunes composed by Leonard Cohen and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, is out now (and available everywhere - via Bandcamp, iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon +)

This was filmed during August 2011. This is my interpretation of the fjord landscape in western Norway. Having spent countless days here, I really enjoy even the smallest parts of this landscape. Like hidden streams or dwarfish waterfalls outside of the beaten track that offer a great deal of solitude.
This movie was editing "on the road" and uploaded over 3G network from southeast asia. I have decided to spend the next two years creating a 60min blu-ray/dvd. As a landscape photographer, I have visited some really amazing places over the years, and now I will be revisiting many of them for this movie. It is a full-on project, and as a result I have now sold my apartment, print-studio, car and other belongings.
I thought Beethoven´s Moonlight Sonata would be appropriate, and asked my friend Marika Takeuchi if she could record it in a studio. She made a fantastic version which I love very much. Thank you!
