Member Release: Abigail Lapell


Abigail Lapell – Stolen Time
Release: April 22, 2022

​​Toronto songwriter Abigail Lapell returns with Stolen Time, her elemental and powerfully evocative third album. Produced by Howard Bilerman at Montreal’s hotel2tango, Stolen Time feels unhurried, psychedelic and otherworldly in the vein of Gillian Welch or Karen Dalton. A theme of recovery runs through the album, with songs about becoming sober, or a partner’s sudden illness, exploring the cycle of rehabilitation and relapse.

An eclectic cast of musicians underscores the power of Lapell’s vocals on live-off-the-floor, 70s folk-rock arrangements featuring bass, drums, horns, strings and steel. But many of Stolen Time’s standout tracks are solo guitar or piano songs, backed by little more than ghostly accordion or harmonica. The result is Lapell’s most ambitious and confident album to date.

Over the past five years and two spellbinding albums, Lapell has garnered two Canadian Folk Music Awards, hit number one on Canadian folk radio and accrued a staggering 16 million+ Spotify streams while touring widely across Canada, the United States and Europe.

Stolen time is out April 22, 2022 on Outside Music. The release will be supported by tour dates and festivals across Canada, including Toronto album launch Friday June 24th at the Dakota Tavern.
