(L-R: Derek Sullivan x A&C, Niall McClelland x Timber Timbre, Sojourner Truth Parsons x Feist)
A&C is pleased to announce a partnership with successful Canadian designer Jeremy Laing for the creation of an original line of apparel featuring design collaborations between Arts & Crafts musicians and noted Canadian visual artists. The unisex collection will be available online and at select Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada, beginning Monday, May 6. 100 per cent of the profits will be donated to MusiCounts, whose mission is to ensure that children in Canada, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances and cultural background, have access to a music program through their school.
Artistically directed and produced by Laing, visual artists Derek Sullivan, Jessica Eaton, Sojourner Truth Parsons, Niall McClelland and Jason McLean each chose an Arts & Crafts musician to draw inspiration from, and used their music to inspire their designs. The result is a unique design that intersects between visual art and sound, representing the work of Arts & Crafts, Broken Social Scene, Feist, Timber Timbre and Dan Mangan through colour, pattern and design.

Amy Millan: ”Stars was always my husband, and Social Scene was kind of like my side lover. I dedicated my life to Stars, and Social Scene always had people coming in and out of it. Sometimes Emily would go on tour with them, sometimes Leslie Feist would go on tour with them and sometimes I would go on tour with them. It was never permanent because all three of the females in the band had other major things going on, which got irritating for Kevin and Brendan, who were running the show.” (Indie Music Label Arts & Crafts Celebrates 10 Years)
Can Feist play in three cities on the same night?
Vancouver - Toronto - Montreal. Three cities. Three parties. One night. How will Feist manage to perform at all of the GALAXY S4 Preview Parties across the country? Stay tuned to find out how she’ll pull it off.
