"Silver Civic" by Charlotte Cornfield

"My initial intention wasn't to make a record at all," Toronto songwriter Charlotte Cornfield muses. "The whole thing kind of happened by accident. I went to The Banff Centre to do a residency and came out with these recordings that I knew I wanted to use for something but wasn't sure what." Cornfield brought the unfinished songs to her former roommate Nigel Ward in Montreal. "He fell into the producer role seamlessly," says Cornfield. "We took it slow and just tried things for a while until the vision settled in. There was no rush. It was freeing, and it gave the songs a lot of breathing room to develop." The Shape of Your Name features a star-studded cast of collaborators including (but not limited to) Grammy-winning engineer Shawn Everett, Broken Social Scene members Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin, and Montreal songwriter Leif Vollebekk.
