The Karpinka Brothers – New Single Release

Canadian folk-rock duo The Karpinka Brothers have released a new single titled “You Make It Look Easy” for their upcoming album “Talk is Cheap.” Check out the song here:

The inspiration for the track came from Shawn Karpinka’s wife during a time of self-introspection, and “wondering about his place in the world.” The album finds the balance of sincerity and positivity for the Saskatoon brothers, who have a reputation of balancing as professional musicians and community volunteers. The brothers worked with Grammy nominee Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Leonard Cohen, Vic Chestnutt) who recorded and produced the album at his legendary Hotel2Tango in Montréal.

The album is a mix of folk and 60s pop songs with contributing musicians from Mathieu Charbonneau (Timber Timbre) on piano and keys, Jamie Thompson (Unicorns/Islands) on drums and percussion, Sophie Trudeau (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) on violin, Joel Kerr (Sara Slean) on bass, and backing vocals by Krista Muir.

The Karpinka brothers will be taking their nostalgic and pastiche songwriting on the road for a North American tour in support of “Talk is Cheap.” Check out this duo, who have in the past shared the stage with artists like John K. Samson and Gordon Lightfoot.
