Why You Need Acres and Acres

“Truth & Sky is the perfect blend of mesmerizing vocals and string melodies”.
Alyssa Gallant – The Coast, Halifax, NS

This has been a big year for Acres and Acres. The band released their sophomore album Truth & Sky, charted on commercial and campus radio across the country (#1 on CFRC in Kingston & CKDU in Halifax), toured the Maritimes with a full band & string section, and sold out shows all along their album release tour.

Based out of Halifax, NS the band consists of a duo of songwriters (Kris Pope & David Scholten), a killer rhythm section (Jordi Comstock, Ian Sherwood), and a talented composer & keys player (Ian Bent). For bigger shows, a string quartet joins the group, adding the lush layers found on the album.

“Truth And Sky has a beautiful arrangement…..Scholten and Pope’s vocals are stirring and graceful throughout.” – Bob Mersereau, CBC

The band’s debut album All Nations was nominated for Recording of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards. Three years of writing, touring, recording, collaborating and general endless philosophizing resulted in a concise and impressive follow up album. Truth & Sky uses
a variety of live recordings and studio tracks to further develop the band’s unique atmospheric-folk sound.

“…a record that I can only describe as the Nova Scotia Trinity Sessions.”
– Tom Power, Deep Roots, CBC R2
