Toronto singer and songwriter Abigail Lapell is out with a new album, Anniversary, which features 11 intimate songs that explore youth, grief and eternal love.

The multi-instrumentalist joined fellow Canadian group Great Lake Swimmers at the historic St. Mark’s Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario to record this latest project.

Inspired by many milestones in her life – from turning 40 to the 15th anniversary of her father’s passing – Lapell showcases her vocals, guitar, piano and more on this new project.

Reset checked in with the singer ahead of her Chicago show at Schubas Tavern.

GUEST: Abigail Lapell, Toronto-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist
