Josh Hyslop Releases "What Have I Done?" From Forthcoming Debut Album; Canadian Tour Announced
“One of those superbly talented performers that seems to come from out of nowhere. Young Mr. Hyslop has a singer-songwriter maturity far beyond his years.” – CBC Radio
In anticipation of his first full-length album, Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Joshua Hyslop released “What Have I Done?” (feat. Anna Scouten) via Nettwerk Records.
“What Have I Done?” features the vocal and musical talents of a young man with a mature and measured voice. Despite his youth, Hyslop’s music deftly explores the complicated conversation between the battle and brilliance of life.
“What Have I Done?” is the first new song since last year’s six-song EP, titled Cold Wind. EP received early support from CBC, Earshot Magazine, Penguin Eggs, Exclaim! and others.
Currently, Hyslop is preparing for a month-long headline tour through Canada starting March 15th. The dates include two Canadian Music Week (CMW) showcases on Friday, March 23rd and Saturday, March 24th. Like SXSW, Canada’s CMW spans five nights with more than 800 showcasing bands at 60 venues in downtown Toronto. For a complete list of dates, see below.
