Snowblink is non-denominational devotional pop music hailing from LA and Toronto.
Snowblink is a lush folk/pop duo from Toronto, Canada and Los Angeles, CA featuring Daniela Gesundheit and Dan Goldman. The duo has released two critically acclaimed records on Fire and Arts & Crafts.
Snowblink has toured extensively through North America and Europe, both as a headliner and as support for Feist, Jeff Tweedy, Bahamas, Timber Timbre, and Owen Pallett.
In 2012, Snowblink was invited by Leslie Feist to join her band at the Polaris Prize gala. The evening resulted in the creation of the seven-headed collaborative superband, Hydra, which went on to tour summer festivals in 2014. The band performs songs from the Feist, Snowblink and AroarA catalog.
In addition to featured soundtrack contributions (NPR’s Radiolab, Stand Clear of the Closing Doors (Tribeca Film Festival), The National Parks Project (NFB), Al Purdy Was Here (TIFF)), 2014 saw Gesundheit featured alongside Brian Eno on Owen Pallett’s In Conflict, and Zammuto’s (formerly The Books) Anchor as vocalist and co-writer. She also staged Returning Current, a collaboration with acoustic biologist Katy Payne (The Song of the Humpback Whale), which assembled choirs in different cities in North America to apprentice themselves to the musicality of Humpback Whales and African Elephants.
Gesundheit has collaborated with Ed Droste, Brendan Canning, Bahamas, MGMT, Thom Gill, Nat Baldwin (The Dirty Projectors), Frank Lyon, and Tony Dekker, and is the recipient of numerous grants from Factor and the Toronto, Ontario, and Canada Councils for the Arts. Snowblink is a featured collaborator on astronaut Chris Hadfield’s forthcoming LP (2015 Warner Brothers), the first record ever to be recorded in space.
