East Coast Music Award winner, Erin Costeloʼs latest album Down Below, The Status Quo is a reflection of her (and our) complicated world, expressed through a voice unlike any other in Canada. Having paid tribute to her vintage soul music influences on her previous album, We Can Get Over, Erinʼs musical evolution has taken its next natural step on Down Below, The Status Quo by channeling those themes into 10 new deeply personal tracks that display her gifts as a producer, songwriter and arranger.
Down Below, The Status Quo follows on the heels of We Can Get Over being named R&B/Soul Recording of the Year at the 2014 East Coast Music Awards. In the wake of that triumph, she shared stages with Mavis Staples, Dr. John, and Bettye LaVette, as well as appearing on Joel Plaskettʼs 2015 release, The Park Avenue Sobriety Test, and joining him for his performance throughout Canada including a performance with the National Arts Centre Orchestra. She has collaborated with some of Canada's most talented artists including Stephen Fearing, Rose Cousins, Amelia Curran, and Al Tuck.
