News of great music travels fast and new country CD EastHaven, Country Love will be no exception!
Mark Konarowski is a well-known, multi-talented Canadian musician and writer who has his eyes and ears firmly focused on the musical landscape as he and his exceptional band Easthaven cross the great pop divide to conquer the world of Country music. People are drawn to the fact that Konarowski is so set on being successful in this business.
Launching in January 2018 with a brand new sound, Konarowski is a seasoned, award-winning singer/songwriter who has come into his own as he transitions with a release of a new CD and a portfolio of must-listen-to songs. His is consistently known for his groundbreaking song writing, vocals and genre-crunching dynamics given to his music and this latest release does not disappoint.
Described in a recent news article as a person with “powerful vocals” echoing influences of David Coverdale and Sammy Hagar, Konarowski has drifted back into more melodic tones as he transforms into his new musical genus.
His musical journey has transversed the Canadian music landscape and has taken him from coast to coast playing venues both big and small, but always with the maple syrup flowing through his veins as he stays true to his Canadian roots.
Konarowski’s musical star started its shining rise while still in his early teens, exploding onto the scene with his gift of writing lyrics and composing songs and a clear crisp powerful voice that led to his winning several contests with earlier pop/rock bands.
His well-earned respect by piers in the industry was rewarded when he was recruited to record a new CD with a late nineties band Adrenalin, and with the ever-changing fast-pace music scene, was recruited to record with the band Xntrik. His venues have included some of the most notorious nightclubs, as well playing over Ontario, playing mostly showcases for both bands, Rock n Roll Heaven, The Spectrum, Gasworks, El McCombo and many more.
Now, Konarowski and Easthaven have taken their first-steps into Country with a wave of classic tracks on their latest compilation, entitled Country Love, a ten-song recording that came together on the streets of his hometown of Oshawa ON, where the local musical icon has constantly pushed the envelope of his artistry since picking up his first pair of drumsticks at the tender age of 16.
Why did this pop-rocker have aspirations to go country? After relentless years of touring, performing and writing it turns out his past helped him to transition to the future. His strength at ballad writing and advice from a friend that convinced him to look at the country music market.
“We were driving in the car one night listening to some of my previous recordings. She’s a huge country fan and asked if she could take them home to listen. A few days later we were speaking and she said ‘you have a really nice quality (voice) on the softer, slower or ballad-like songs’ that she thought would truly lend itself to the new country genre.” says Konarowski.
Excited and ready, the more Konarowski thought about it the more it made sense. Having jammed and played with several country bands throughout the years, he came to the conclusion it was time to make a change.
“I love the loyalty of country fans –the music is fast paced, fans still buy a lot of CDs and they love going to concerts and I was truly inspired with the move much like Darius Rucker, the new incredible rocking country sound of Kieth Urban and Canada’s own Dallas Smith.”
(This Album) couldn’t have come at a better time in his musical journey. It is a polished and cohesive sound capitalizing on Konarowski’s strong, smooth, crystal clear vocals backed by great classic country overtones of melodic pedal steel guitar throughout and weaves into funky country guitar “It has happy go lucky catchy tunes that will have everyone singing along,” promises Konarowski.. Fantastic songs that are drawn from real life that everyone can relate to, broken hearts, losing someone, looking for love.
It took six months from the time he first put pen to paper to the end of the recording sessions.
The signature song on the album, Ring on my Finger, certainly has the right ingredients to catapult it to Number 1 on the Country charts. A true romantic song that radiates right from the heart.
It’s about a man who is eager for his wife to put a ring on his finger. As the song lyric says “I don’t care what the tough guys say, I wanna be your man.”
It’s really a metaphor for the day he married his wife Lynette and how he expressed how happy he was to marry her but it wouldn’t be real until she “put the ring on his finger”.
Joining Konarowski on this album is an incredible collection of stunning sought after Canadian musicians which includes multi nominated CCMA and 2001 winner Doug Johnson on pedal steel, 6 time CCMA guitar player of the year, Paul “Chappy” Chapman on lead and rhythm guitar, bassist John Dymond, drummer Gary Craig and Craig Harley on keyboards.
“The combination worked, and it gave Easthaven the unique edge that defines the band’s sound.”
You can see them soon in the new year as they set their schedule for upcoming showcases and concerts. Stay tuned.
