Introducing winterside - the first album ever from Stephanie and Daniel Payne!

It's ready! Stephanie Payne and I are so excited to finally be able to share our first album ever as a duo, winterside!  Recorded, mixed and mastered by the amazing Lou McDonald, winterside weaves solo vocals and sibling harmonies (I'm her brother!) and showcases Stephanie's incredible voice and skills on bodhran, guitar and whistle.  I lay down my instrumental parts on accordion, flute, and fiddle, and our brother Phillip picks up the drum and drives the beat along as a special guest on some lucky tracks!

One of Newfoundland and Labrador's finest musicians in his debut album.  Chain is a tour-de-force of instrumental dance tunes and unaccompanied ballads, drawn up from the roots of tradition, dusted off, and brought into the light again through powerful performance and dramatic arrangements.  Featuring Daniel's gorgeous baritone voice and his virtuoso playing on fiddle, accordion, wooden flute, tin whistle, and guitar, Chain is a landmark album in Newfoundland and Labrador music and was awarded US Public Radio show Celtic Connections' Album of the Year for 2008, beating out such names as Celtic Fiddle Festival, Capercaillie and Solas.

The Four Stops - SOLD OUT

In 2004 I approached four accordion players from the Northern Peninsula and Southern Labrador with the idea of recording an album of traditional accordion music. I wanted to offer them an avenue to share their music without drum machines, electric guitars, or anything else obscuring it. The four players, Calvin and Luke Payne, Kevin Bennett, and John Marshall were all game, and so DOP Productions was born, with the album, entitled The Four Stops, released in winter 2005.


This title is not available at the moment.
