No Remedy for Love, is a partial quote from Henry David Thoreau “There is no remedy for love but to love more.” It is also the title of one of Liona’s songs that Leonard Cohen had expressed admiration for and that she had dedicated to him before his death. The central theme of the album is love in its many incarnations. The collection of songs talks about her love for the planet (A Prayer for Planet Earth), her love for animals and the people who advocate for them (People who Care for the Animals), romantic love (Who Knows, with special guest Juno award winner Jack Grunsky and Nothing’s as Cruel as Time, an ode to a young lover), memories of teenage love (in the ABBA-inspired Near To You) as well as love for the place she now calls home (The Toronto Song, Song for Ontario). Lightfoot, is a special musical tribute to Gordon Lightfoot, the man, who helped launch Liona’s career when she was his opening act in the 70’s. Gordon was deeply touched by this song that features a legendary guest, his friend Ronnie Hawkins. 

The complex production of No Remedy for Love was inspired by the melodic folk, pop and classical music Liona grew up with and embraces a wide range of influences across its seventeen tracks. Liona said “This album which began three years ago has been a labour of love for both myself and my brilliant producer Peter Bond. We feel proud of every song, and I am delighted that through my book people will now be able to read all the behind the scenes struggles and triumphs behind this special album”
