Canadian artist Paul Cafcae released his latest single, ‘Banks of Marble‘, yesterday – May 10, 2024. The release marks an intriguing preview of his upcoming fifth album, which has been in the works for the past year.

‘Banks of Marble’ reflects Paul’s concerns about social inequality and the need for greater democratic rights. Inspired by the union songs of the past century, the track blends Eastern European and North American folk influences.

Paul’s observations of deteriorating conditions in Ontario, Canada, fueled the creation of ‘Banks of Marble’. During his 2023 tour through Canadian provinces, including Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and northern Quebec, he found the song resonated strongly with audiences facing similar challenges.

The single pays homage to the classic 1949 union anthem ‘The Banks Are Made of Marble’ and features collaborative performances by Ethan Tilbury on upright bass and Diana Herrera on drums. Recorded and mixed at School House Studios in Hamilton, Ontario, by Andy Dmytryshyn, and mastered by Jamie King, the track brilliantly captures Paul’s vision for social change.

‘Banks of Marble’ serves as a call to action, urging listeners to address inequality and advocate for worker empowerment and democratic principles. For fans of socially conscious folk music (that also sounds great!), you can’t really go wrong with Paul Cafcae’s latest song.
