The songwriting duo of Jennifer Claveau and Eric Newby have never been
busier, with the recent release of their new album "weightless" and a full
calendar of summer festivals for 2005. Together, they have been perfecting
their live performance, crafting beautiful soaring melodies and tasteful
guitar arrangements for the past five years.
"Canada's next big singing star" (The Toronto Sun) is the voice of
Likewater, Jennifer Claveau. With a unique sound all their own, Likewater's
strong vocals, catchy melodies and emotional performance can be compared to
that of Sarah McLachlan, Sinead O'Connor and Dolores O'Riordan of the
Cranberries. Eric Newby carefully polishes each song with the perfect
guitar answer, weaving subtle layers of melody and atmosphere.
The duo continues to write new material with the support of a songwriting
grant received from the Ontario Arts Council. After their festival stint,
they are heading back into the studio to record some new tracks for their
follow-up album, scheduled for release in spring of 2006. See
