More Info

Who is Two Late To The Party?

Two Late To The Party consists of Adam Corkett and Alessandra Enns who met as volunteer musicians at Friends Church in Calgary. Friends Church is a unique community that creates space to explore spirituality, allows people to connect in community, and inspires people to contribute to their community to make positive changes in their world. From volunteering together came the natural step to form a duo focused on crafting original music with similar values in mind. Our songwriting process involves collaboration with each other and our community giving and receiving in a way that nurtures and fosters connection and healing . Our participation and interaction in our community informs our work together as we discuss the concepts and outcomes we desire to achieve with our songs. Our aim is to reach others with our words and songs in a way that inspires hope, brings joy and lifts up our communities. 

We have continued to be involved in the Calgary Music Community by participating in Calgary music festivities such Chinook Blast, Music Mile on the Go, Fatigue Fest, CCMA Off Country Week and performing at local music venues like the Ironwood, Cafe Koi, and Asylum for the Arts. We have shared our music through a number of community organizations such as the Inglewood Night Market, Calgary Downtown Association and the East Village and with regular Sunday music services with Friends Church and Knox United Church.

For the last 4 years we participated in a number of music festivals across Alberta including East Coulee SpringFest, Tongue on the Post Festival, Mountain View Arts Festival, Waynestock, Kaleido Festival, Wetaskiwin Arts Festival and Bro-Tel Music Festival

In 2020 we released our debut album called “The Great Unraveling” which featured the singles “R-V-M”, “Glimpse” and “Ghost in my bones” which charted on college radio

- Top 50 Nationally for week of Jan 19.

- Top 200 nationally for the month of January.

- Top 10 Folk/Roots/Blues Album 4 times on CJSR Edmonton and CFBX Kamloops.

- Top 30 Charts 7 times on CJSR Edmonton, CHRW London and CFRU Guelph.

Our Goals for this project

- Complete a sophomore album that shows our growth as artists and collaborators.

- Continue to establish ourselves as an “Export” ready artist by partnering with music industry professionals.

- Continue to grow our experience as performing artists by expanding the number of arts and community events we participate in.

- Build on the success of our debut album to connect more people with our music.

What is this project about?

The intent of this project is to create and market a full length album of original music that is focused on a message of hope which will be titled “In The Sunrise”. We plan to use the funds for this project to both help with creative development of new material, with the recording of the album itself and with the marketing of the album when it’s completed. Our plan over the next 18 months is to complete the recording and mastering of these new songs at Wheelhouse Sound while working with musicians from Alberta and Ontario and then partnering with a marketing agency and publicity specialist to successfully release the album in 2022. 

Our project will be 18 months in length including post release activities, with completion in July 2022. We want to use this project to learn and grow as artists in a number of ways. We want to learn and grow artistically from what we experienced with our first album project and invest time in pre-production and  workshopping new material. We want to learn and grow as music artists from a commercial perspective by partnering with established music marketing team to learn how to successfully release an album for commercial success. We want to grow the audience for our music with this album so that we can connect with a larger audience and give our music the opportunity to have the impact we think it can have.

Who is Wheelhouse Sound?

Wheelhouse Sound is based in High River Alberta. We have worked in the past with Paul on our previous album and are excited to continue our working relationship with him both for his technical abilities but also for his ability to get the most from us creatively. Paul creates an amazing space for artists to work and is essential in crafting our recorded sound. He plays a wide range of instruments and is able to collaborate with us in a way that is best described as an successful partnership. Paul has over 10 years experience producing albums with artists such as The Dearhearts, The Fig and the Flame, Lewis & Royal, Flint & Feather and Johnny & The Stray Hearts. Paul was recognized by YYC Music Awards with a nomination for “Recording Studio of The Year” for two years in a row.

How will these funds be used?

We are looking for funds to help complete the remaining 6 songs

A completed song = Songs Developed, Tracked, Edited, Mixed, Mastered and Released.

We plan to try and match donations dollar for dollar so that we have enough to cover both album production but associated release costs.

On average a fully completed song costs about $1200 dollars, we have already completed 2 songs, the fundraising would help us complete the last 6 songs.
