Old Cabin is the project of Whitehorse, YT based songwriter Jona Barr. Personal, but with a national vision developedthrough extensive touring and collaborations, Jona’s songs are expansive enough to accommodate large arrangements and intimate enough to be performed solo, always with sincerity, honesty, and an in-the-moment spontaneity.
About Saturn Return:
“The album opens with the previously shared addiction tale “Where Did You Go,” which is immediately followed by an accompanying suite cryptically titled “!?!” From there, we hear the stories of “Joe,” as well as “And Annie,” before Barr grapples with the absurdities of life on “I Got You,” and finally — and perhaps most powerfully — the aftermath of residential schools on “Don’t Leave Me Behind.”
Rich with layered characters and heavy themes, the album is am engaging exercise in modern musical storytelling told through a distinctly Canadian lens.”
