'Oh Surround Me' by Kitchener's Luke Michielsen is Remarkable and Astonishing


Kitchener singer/songwriter Luke Michielsen has a lot to draw listeners in on his new album, Oh Surround Me.  You'll hear some astonishing, first-class, poppy, alt-folk.

With his expressive voice and wonderful musical skills, Luke creates accessible, modern, acoustic folk with an artistic edge.  The remarkable, poetic lyrics also separates it from the pack.

Both the CD or download is available through his Bandcamp page.

EXTRA MINI-REVIEWS!

Some recordings escape our radar, so occasionally we'll be catching up with some mini-reviews!


In 2011, Luke released the 5 song EP, Meddle in the Natural Order.  With more of a raw sound (basically voice and guitar), it has more of an organic, sparse sound that works superbly.  It's available through Bandcamp.



Video above courtesy of Luke Michielsen


The 2008 album, Burn to the Ground, finds Luke's voice in fine form with more poppy alt-folk (with a little touch of Americana this time).  You can get this via Bandcamp.

Hamilton's Amber Edgar Stirs the Senses With "Good Will Rise'


Exquisitely layered and emotive, Good Will Rise, the four song EP from Hamilton singer/songwriter, Amber Edgar, will stir the senses.  Lyrically and musically, the recording's very well-crafted and inspiring.

With an almost cinematic flair, each alt-folk/pop tune paints a mental picture of mourning, loss and redemption.  Though sometimes dark, Amber manages to inject the songs with a bit hope and meaning as well.

Helping along the way are Adam Bentley and Anna Jarvis (formerly of The Rest), Bill Majoros of Foreign Films, Troy DowdingKarijn DeJong, Kori Pop, and Jordon Mitchell.  They make amazing contributions to the stunning density and artistry of the sound.

The EP is available through her Bandcamp page.

Amber released the Honey and Sorrow single in 2013.  Both the main song and the "B-Side" Troubles, are infectious numbers featuring her wonderful lyrics.  It's available via Bandcamp.

Kitchener's Richard Garvey Creates Pleasant, Inviting Album


Where Fools Gather, the latest album from Kitchener's Richard Garvey strikes a pleasant balance between good-time, friendly folk and ethereal, graceful, artistic numbers.  There's definitely something for everyone here.

Always well-written, the recording has an organic, welcoming feel that invites the listener to get lost in the moment.  Whether's it's dancing to the great banjo/mandolin/fiddle playing or hearing Richard's sometimes ghostly vocals spirit you away, every song will affect you.

Richard has a lot of stunning help from his friends.  They include Julia Narveson, Buck Thompson, Dan Henshall, Dave Soehner, Laura Dyck, Rachel Bruch, Eric Johnson-Scherger, Kate Romain, Richard Driedger, Dan Belgue, Josef Bell, and Jess Spencer.  Backing vocals by Celidh Barker, Laura Ashfield, Marina Marina, and Bill Howard.

Physical CD's are available at his wonderful live shows and through his Bandcamp page (you can download it there too).

Guelph's Jason Raso Shows His Bass Mastery on 'Man of 40 Faces'


Guelph bassist Jason Raso is a man who has beautifully mastered his instrument.  You need to look no further than his latest album, Man of 40 Faces.  This mostly solo, instrumental recording will marvel you with just how much musical texture one bass can handle.

Each song has it's own special mood.  Cinematic, classical, bluesy, jazzy and all stylistic points in between are handled exceptionally well.

Jason is joined on a few tracks by fellow bassist Alain Caron, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon and vibraphonist Francesco Pinetti.  They match his amazing dexterity with their instruments.

So go ahead and pick up a CD though his live shows or his online shop,  It can also be downloaded via that same shop or using iTunes.

EXTRA MINI-REVIEWS!

Some albums escape our radar, so occasionally we'll be catching up with some mini-reviews!


In 2013, his Jason Raso Quartet released Slingshot, a funky, swinging, good time collection of instrumental wizardry.    Joined by Thomas Hammerton (keys), Adam Bowman (drums) and Brent Rowan (sax), Jason and the gang know how to groove.  It's available as a CD or download at his online shop.  A digital version is available at iTunes as well.



Video above courtesy of Jason Raso



Jason unleashed his album Red Arrow in 2011.  With the help of Tony Monaco (B3 Organ), Richard Underhill of the Shuffle Demons (sax), Ted Warren (drums) and Francesco Pinetti (vibraphone) the bassist created an amazing mix of slinky, smooth, jazzy and bluesy instrumentals.  You can purchase it through his online shop, cdbaby, eMusic, or iTunes.

Lucas Stagg Group Are All Fired Up on New Impressive Album!


Toronto's Lucas Stagg Group (the main man is from Cambridge though) are all fired up on Off We Go, their most recent album (offed through Busted Flat Records) .   There's a ton of controlled intensity here.  You can definitely feel a bit of a punk vibe on some tunes but it's backed up by melodic, virtuoso playing.

Lucas and the boys (bassist Danny Alac and drummer Cleave Anderson - formerly of Blue Rodeo) bring their impressive talents to quite a mix of music.  Along with the raw rockers, the group offer folky tracks, a touch of country, some jazzy spots, a little bit o' blues and much more.

You can pick the CD up at any of their electric live shows.  It can also be ordered via the Busted Flat online shop or downloaded through iTunes.
