Toronto singer-songwriter Howard Gladstone's Hourglass—his fifth album of original contemporary folk/roots music in the U.S.A. will release on June 15, 2018.

Three years after spinal surgery Howard Gladstone has returned to music with a higher level of commitment and inspiration, and deeper understanding of its' healing power. Gladstone has written songs that reflect a quiet despair, but answered by a message of hope, perseverance and optimism. The songs on Hourglass have resonated well with early reviewers, audiences and international radio airplay. The album sparkles with an occasional Latin accent from accomplished vocalist, pianist, songwriter Laura Fernandez and guitar licks from the virtuoso fret-burning Tony Quarrington. Acoustic bass master George Koller shines throughout.

In 2017, Gladstone along with Laura Fernandez founded Sonic Peach Music, an independent record label. Demonstrating Sonic Peach Music's commitment to audio fidelity, Hourglass was recorded in 192kHz/24bit resolution by Peter J. Moore, Grammy-winning recording and mastering engineer (The Basement Tapes), using the Calrec microphone made famous in the Cowboy Junkies's groundbreaking Trinity Sessions. Hourglass is envisioned as a traditional album with side A (tracks 1-5) featuring all acoustic instruments, while side B (tracks 6-9) adds drums (Bob Scott), electric guitar plus instrumental surprises including electric sitar and large vocal chorus.
