Uncut Jan 2017 – Review by Gavin Martin 8/10

22. November 2016 • Category: MUSIC, NEWS • Comments: 0

Delirious Canadian combo centred on jazz chanteuse and national treasure

Justly lauded as one of her generation’s purest voices, Cullen’s scale-swooning smoothness and jazzy agility here prove the perfect foil for two celebrated fellow countrymen fans. The landscape of Jobim/Bacharach pop is reimagined with Ron Sexsmith’s ever curious and naturally psychedelic lyrics on “Strange Is The Life”, along with the off-kilter soulfulness of inspired arrangements by Cullen’s husband, the excellently named Kurt Swinghammer. The cherry on the cake could be Ron and Lori’s “Off Somewhere”, but everywhere here these sensual, swinging and sashaying songs provide pleasure-centre-assailing treats for any season.

Tributes ‘r Us

05. March 2013 • Category: EVENTS, MUSIC • Comments: 0

As a huge fan of Carole King, I’m looking forward to playing a couple of her great songs at this tribute cabaret at Hugh’s Room in Toronto. I’ll be performing No Easy Way Down and It’s Too Late. Advance tickets are recommended as this show will likely sell out. Friday, March 15, 8:30 SHARP. Poster by A Man Called Wrycraft.
