Off the heels of two successfully sold-out celebration concerts in Toronto and Guelph, folk singer-songwriter Preetam Sengupta returns to his hometown for the “It’s Great To Be Home” show December 9.
Patience is both the title of Preetam’s new album, and a skill he needed to exercise in its release. After his debut album, HopeFull, a personal issue set Preetam back temporarily. He needed to re-learn how to play and sing songs he’d written in the past, unsure he’d ever be able to write another.
In time, Preetam found his way back to good health, and in studio with JUNO-winning producer Byram Joseph (aka Slakah the Beatchild). Joseph’s imagination and “musical wizardry” (as per Preetam) pushed the limits of what Preetam perceived as his abilities, and how his music fit into a particular genre. The result is Patience, a labour of love and celebration of life’s joys and sorrows.
