Fiver presents “Audible Songs From Rockwood”
For almost a decade, Simone Schmidt has been writing new life into and around folk, country, and rock songs as the singer/songwriter for One Hundred Dollars (2007-11), front person for The Highest Order (2011-), and in her solo work as Fiver (2012-). The Toronto-based artist has six LPs to her writing credit, along with a range of singles, and collaborations with artists as wide ranging as hardcore punk phenomenon Fucked Up, to the inimitable US Girls, and old time and bluegrass veteran Chris Coole. Schmidt has produced original works for film (World Famous Gopher Hole Museum, Land of Destiny) and appears as a guest vocalist on a number of records, including Doug Paisley, Tasseomancy, and The Wooden Sky. In April 2017, Schmidt released Audible Songs From Rockwood, a song cycle based on the lives of people incarcerated at the Rockwood Asylum for the Criminally Insane in Upper Canada between 1856-1881.
