Montreal based Michael Feuerstack, widely acclaimed for his work as Snailhouse, has toured extensively and released a staggering amount of music since the mid 1990's. Now, the singer/songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist is starting fresh releasing his brand new album, Tambourine Death Bed (Forward Music Group) under his own name.

With Tambourine Death Bed, Feuerstack ushers in a new chapter for his solo work, one that weaves together all of the rich experience and influences of his vast and varied career. The album features guest appearances by Colin Stetson, Laurel Sprengelmeyer (Little Scream), Mathieu Charbonneau (Torngat, Luyas, Ferris Wheel), Nathan Gage (Shapes & Sizes, Elfin Saddle), Sebastian Chow (Islands, Caroline Keating) and Jeremy Gara (Arcade Fire).

In the past few years, Snailhouse has toured constantly and released two albums, Sentimental Gentleman and Lies on the Prize (which was nominated in 2008 for the Polaris Music Prize). On top of that, Feuerstack has contributed to a multitude of other projects;  he is a touring member of The Luyas, he played lap steel in the Juno Award winning Bell Orchestre, and has toured or recorded with the likes of Angela Desveaux, Bry Webb, Land of Talk, and Little Scream, among many others.

Feuerstack was also the founding member of Ottawa art-rock band Wooden Stars, who won a Juno in 2000 for their collaborative album Julie Doiron & the Wooden Stars. Never one to sit still, Feuerstack has recently also been found in the production credits of albums by Paper Beat Scissors (Forward Music Group, March 2012) and others.

Feuerstack's panoramic and literate musicality can been seen live in many forms. The beauty of the performances, like those of any great singer/songwriter, is that his songs can transcend any boundaries, to be heard in all genres of music. Whether performing solo or with any combination of his diverse and impressive cast of collaborators, Feuerstack's performances collect fans of an uncommon loyalty, which speaks to the quality of the music. In the age of over-saturation and short attention spans, Michael Feuerstack creates music that is worth hanging on to.
