That Certain Chartreuse
Lori interprets 10 eclectic songs by a wide range of writers in her genre defying style, and presents a new original composition as well.
Tunes made famous by Shania Twain and Suzanne Vega rub shoulders with a cult classic from King Crimson, while local composers Jory Nash, Kurt Swinghammer and John Millard are represented beside a chestnut from the grandfather of Toronto singer/songwriters,Gordon Lightfoot.
At the intersection of jazz, easy listening, orchestral pop and acoustic folk is the sound of Buttercup Bugle.
Co-produced by Chris Dedrick –mastermind behind the legendary 60’s Sunshine Pop vocal group Free Design.
CAlling for Rain
Along side two original works Calling for Rain is full of other people’s songs. A collection of mature songs that highlight the craft of song writing and the emotional power of a direct and intimate lyric.
Rare gems by Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, Randy Newman, Bruce Cockburn, Richard Thompson, Harry Nilson, Henry Mancini and Irving Berlin.

“If music had the power to reduce stress, this would be the album to do it… Lori Cullen’s effort could add atmosphere to a construction site. A true artist who has created an important work of contemporary Canadian music.”
