Curran records Hunter, Hunter in hometown

“It’s technical,” says Amelia Curran of recording Hunter, Hunter in odd locales like an old CBC building and an abandoned farmhouse on the outskirts of St. John’s.“There were unforeseen circumstances, and when a project goes that long, you find yourself playing catch up a lot.”

Recorded in “various caverns” in her home town, Curran’s fifth album since 2000, and first in 20 months, – an inordinately long off-season for the singer-songwriter – is the only of her quintuplets ever produced in Newfoundland.

“I’ve been gone from St. John’s for 10 years, and I had never done anything at home,” she reflects over the phone from the Maritimes, where she now lives in Nova Scotia. “I really wanted to record with some of the guys who had been watching my whole life, and everybody who has really supported me.”

Hunter, Hunter plays host to a list of performers, all of whom are personal friends of Curran. The multiple East Coast Music Association award winner credits her team from the eastern tip of the island, including St. John’s producer Don Ellis, for much of the album’s success.

“All the musicians, these are people that I’ve known for 15-20 years,” she considers,” and had never worked with. I’m just such a more relaxed person when I’m back home, and that’s something that took me 10 years to notice myself. I think recording in St. John’s probably affected a lot of things.”
