Bud Rice Launches Second Record: Piece of Heaven at Petit Campus

Petit Campus, 57 Prince Arthur Street E., Montreal, QC H2X 1B4

we are thrilled to announce the release of Bud Rice's second full length studio record 'Piece of Heaven' set to showcase in his hometown of Montreal on September 7th at Petit Campus.

The 12 song album was co-produced by Rice’s father Dave Gossage and Rice himself, recorded at Breakglass Studios engineered by Dave Smith and subsequently Padraig Buttner-Schnirer, mixed by Vid Cousins, and mastered by Harris Newman of Grey Market Mastering.

The record is a deeply personal and eclectic ensemble of songs. Once again, Rice has brought together the many musical genres that have shaped him as an artist. 'Piece of Heaven' varies from intimate ballads to riff-based rock songs glued together by his utmost attention to lyricism resulting in a cohesive and emotive product.

We are lucky enough to have the incredible talented Brittany Kennel kicking off the night!

Brittany Kennell was the first Canadian on NBC The Voice. A Berklee grad and Nashville alumni - Kennell has performed for Grand Prix, NHL and MLS. She’s had cuts by many artists, most recently featured in Rolling Stone. A songstress, who is currently writing her next project in Montreal.
