Review – Petunia and the Vipers

Album: Lonesome, Heavy and Lonesome
Release Date: September 15, 2017
Genre: Alt-Country/Folk

Western Canada’s Petunia and the Vipers have released their brand new album Lonesome, Heavy and Lonesome.

Formed in 2007 in Vancouver BCPetunia And The Vipers have been described as “Real underground music… Foot- tapping country & western laced with rock and jazz.” (The New York Post) and “defining the cutting edge of what is considered creative in country and roots today” (Savingcountrymusic.com)

The band has been busy touring across Canada, performing at summer festivals and sold out shows, as well as several tours throughout the UK, and a regular circuit from Vancouver to Los Angeles, and everywhere in between.

“Blues In My Heart” was definitely one of my favourite songs, it has a soft jazz sound and is a song about heartbreak and the lingering pain of a broken heart.

“Ugliest Bitterest Coldest Dreary Place I’ve Ever Seen”, I loved this song it was really fun and upbeat and almost had a swing music sound. Very enjoyable!

Fans of traditional and alt-country, old-time jazz, & blues will find each of the 10 tracks on their new album a musical treat. It is an album that is very calming and jazzy sounding that I would recommend to anyone as it covers so many sounds. Lonesome, Heavy and Lonesome is music for the adventure seeker, the wanderer, the broken-hearted, lovers and other strangers.

My name is Marianne and a music lover from Nova Scotia. I am a full time working mom of 2 beautiful girls who are full of life and love. I have an absolute passion for music and writing, I jumped at the opportunity to freelance for Canadian Beats. I love local music, I grew up in a family full of Gaelic singers in Cape Breton but I also have a passion for country and just about anything else that catches my ear. Writing gives me something of my own that is completely out of my day to day activity, it somewhat allows me to escape my everyday. When I am not working, writing and hanging out with my husband and girls, I am running, reading or riding my horse.
