Album – These Are the Good Times
Bandcamp Link –
Release Date – September 10th, 2014
Genre – Singer/songwriter

Jim Galloway, former front man of band White Heat and current singer/songwriter from Saskatchewan has released his album ‘These Are the Good Times’. Comprised of mainly acoustic guitar, it has an overall relaxed vibe to it. Influenced by music greats such as Peter Frampton, Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, and David Bowie, this album is sure to please.

Smooth vocals and obvious experience in making music makes this album very pleasant to listen to. If you wanted to get a feel of the album, the best songs to check out would be “Drown in a River of Doubt”, “These are the Good Times”, “Morning Rain”, and “Where do we go from Here”. I feel they show off the slower versus faster songs, and quieter versus louder ones

Not knowing much about Galloway, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the album, but I was definitely pleased by what I heard. ‘These are the Good Times’ and its catchy music and lyrics are certainly worth checking out. If you’re like me, you’ll be very impressed.

Rating: 5/5

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
