Song Of The Day – “September Fields” by Frazey Ford

Being as how we are in the Kootenays, it seems appropriate to post a tune by Castlegar’s own Frazey Ford.  It doesn’t hurt either that it is a terrific tune.

Music From The Mailbag – Shaun Bosch

Shaun Bosch Release Party 2013-39

Shaun Bosch is an alt/folk singer songwriter from right here in Alberta. Currently in Edmonton, the cultural hot spot of the province, Shaun has recently released an album titled “Silence”. He recently dropped me a line asking me to take a listen to the first single off the album titled “Garden”. I have and I found a very interesting song filmed in the splendour of the Kananaskis area of Alberta’s Rockies.  Emily Coulston is also featured in the song.  It has a bit of a country feel to it, with some definite folk.  I hear some Jason Mraz and some Bahamas.  Nice song, and if you’re interested, you can catch more at these links.

Random Songs From My Phone – Gabriella Cilmi – Save The Lies

Gabriella Cilmi

Gabriella Cilmi

Australian singer writer Gabriella Cilmi‘s song”Save The Lies” is the result of my random shuffle today.  The song is off her 2008 album “Lessons To Be Learned“.  She has a very interesting voice, very Amy Winehouse in nature.  Lori was the original discoverer of the artist this time.  Heard her in a hair salon of all places and she fell in love with the voice.

Hayley Sales is a Canadian/American singer songwriter.  Born in DC, she moved with her family to Vancouver Island after she graduated the Northwest Academy.  The song that I shuffled up is off her 2010 album, “When The Bird Became The Book” and is called “Simple Song”.  This is the only video that comes up and is off her YouTube channel.  Very good video, homemade and all.  Lori and I have spent a lot time listening to this album and her first one titled “Sunseed”.  Like her a lot, great light, well written music.

Song Of The Day – Meredith Shaw – “Call It A Night”

Meredith Shaw, Toronto born, is both a singer songwriter and a radio personality.  The messenger and the message, cool.  She has a weekend show on 97.3 in Toronto, in which she interviews talent etc.  She has 1 album out, (2011’s Place Called Happy) which was produced by Big Sugar’s Gordie Johnson and 1 EP (also 2011, Trouble) which was produced by Joel Plaskett.  This tune, “Call it a Night” showcases her personality and style and is done live as well.  Great song.
