Joining forces in 2012, Georgia Sound are a folk duo hailing from Calgary, Alberta. The duo consisting of Ryan Roy and Shannon Magee released their first EP titled “One Way Path” last September and have been gaining attention on the Canadian music scene, and rightfully so.

The duo have recently topped charts on ReverbNation and Muzooka, and also were the recipients of the first ever Calgary Earbender Competition.

Their EP consists of five very strong folk tracks straight from the prairie-land. Four of the five tracks hit over four and a half minutes, while “Fine This Way” clocks in at 3:29.

“One Way Path EP” contains totally clean, pure and smooth tracks for a very easy listening. It is the kind of tunes you can turn on for a lazy summer’s afternoon.

Their strongest track is the opening tune, “Give Me Something.” The track topped charts on ReverbNation, giving the band a lot of attention and well deserved praise.

Ryan Roy’s vocals ring similar to another Canadian artist, Rex Goudie, who was the runner-up in Canadian Idol’s season three. Both artists bring folky tunes to life and can totally hold a few notes.

All in all, “One Way Path EP” is a good listen for fans of folk music. Georgia Sound are definitely on the rise, and will be a duo to look out for.

Rating: 3.5/5
