TORONTO, ON - AUGUST 21, 2018 - "I wanted this song to feel like floating;" shares award-winning artist Erin Costelo about her brand new single, Lights Down Low, from her forthcoming album Sweet Marie. "An out of body experience. It is about being able to turn your brain off at the end of the day. As a worrier, I wondered what it would feel like if you could put your brain next to you in bed and leave it for the night." Erin will release her newest album, Sweet Marie on October 19, 2018 in Canada (Venue Records, distributed by Pheromone Recordings) and on Compass Records worldwide on November 2, 2018. Lights Down Low is accompanied by a fun new video featuring Erin and friends exploring the nightlife at the midway - watch and share here. In support of the new album, Erin has announced a fall tour including shows in Toronto, Ottawa, Kingston, Montreal, Charlottetown & Halifax.

What's The Story about Erin Costelo?
Although she has been compared to icons like Carole King and Nina Simone, Erin Costelo’s fifth studio album cements her status as an utterly inimitable voice in Americana music.
Taking inspiration from sources as varied as Ryan Adams and Randy Newman, Sweet Marie is a genre-defying album that sounds at once timeless, timely and completely fresh.
On Sweet Marie, Erin looks at a world and industry that pushed her to the edge of ending her musical career – but she pushes back. Pulsing with a confident and cathartic energy, Erin’s voice soars even as her songs dive deep.
Her 2016 release, Down Below, the Status Quo was nominated for a total of 12 awards in her home on the East Coast of Canada including a win for Solo Recording of the Year and Producer of the Year, making her the first woman to receive the prestigious award.
