Watch Tony Dekker's Video For "Prayer Of The Woods;" Debut Solo Album Out Now

"Prayer of the Woods may be a modest release, but it puts Dekker's talent into sharp focus." - Exclaim!

"Georgously hushed..." - The Georgia Straight

"...ghostly vocals and acoustic guitar picks and strums..." - Filter Magazine 

This week, Great Lake Swimmers' frontman Tony Dekker releases his debut solo album Prayer of the Woods. A self proclaimed "music interlude" between Great Lake Swimmers' albums, Prayer of the Woods is described by Canada's Exclaim! as "a ten-track collection that pares everything down to the bare minimum, with haunting results. Working within elegant acoustic guitar frameworks, augmented by subtle hints of fiddle, keyboards and harmonium, Dekker's preoccupation with the Canadian state of mind flourishes in his lyrics." 

Dekker will be supporting the solo release with intimate live performances throughout Canada and Europe. All dates are below.
