Truro, NS based alt-rock artist, Sperry Alan is about to release his new album, Raw With Intent on April 29, 2016. The album follows his former release, Before Our Time which was released last year. Raw With Intent features sixteen tracks that gently mix rock with folk and traces of country thrown in.
“Parade of Love” and “Float Home (Take Flight)” were the two that I enjoyed most. I had previously heard “Float Home (Take Flight)” as we had the chance to share it earlier on Canadian Beats. It’s the song that I would suggest for someone to listen to first, the music and vocals on this track deliver an interesting mix of genres.
The final song on the album, “Chin Up” ends with a bang, it’s a grittier track that evokes emotion and I could see would appeal to the true blue garage style rock fans out there.
One thing that I really enjoyed on this album is the mixture of interlude type tracks and full songs, that is something that I think more artists should throw in.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
