Release Date – June 2nd, 2015
Genre – Folk/Country

19 year old, Folk/Country artist Colter Wall is from Saskatchewan. He is becoming the talk of the country with his passion for music and getting into the music scene.  Colter Wall has a lot of influences, he looks up to from Johnny Cash to Hank Williams.

Colter is releasing a brand new album called ‘Imaginary Appalachia’ on June 2 through Windrow Entertainment Inc. The album features seven full length tracks, which features Colter’s original sounds making it completely unique. This album also includes Colter Wall’s newest single ‘The Devil Wears A Suit And Tie’. I have listened to the album and have picked out the two songs that I was drawn to, ‘Sleeping On The Blacktop’ (first track) and ‘Caroline’ (Third Track). Both songs have Colter Wall’s own sound that makes him stand out from any other Folk artist I’ve heard. The backup vocals on the song ‘Caroline’ mix very well with Colter’s vocals and makes the song sound amazing and beautiful.

Rating 4/5

My names Lizzie also known as LizzieFizzie. I’m 23 years of age, residing in Ontario and about to start my second year in childhood education. When I’m not drowning in assignments or deadlines I love going to concerts or small intimate shows. My pass time is usually spent listening to music, with friends or my furbabies. I love pop/rock music but slowly getting into the country scene. Some of my favorite canadian artist consist of Hedley, Marianas Trench, and Halfway To Hollywood. I could honestly list then all but it’d be a long list.
