Lee Palmer comes back at us with another great album, Bridge. The album brings forth a string of talented individuals along with Lee Palmer including Al Cross (drums), Alec Fraser (Acoustic/ Electric Bass), Mark Lalama (Hammond organ/ piano/ accordion), and Kevin Breit (Guitar/Mandolin/ Dobro). The album is also produced by Lee Palmer and Elmer Ferrer.
I really enjoyed the track, “My Town”. It’s a song that encompasses everything that’s great about the town where he is from, or currently resides. It’s all the memorable parts about waking up and driving around your town, and doing those everyday things that you love so much. It could also be about living outside of your town, and how it always calls you back home with good memories, family and love. Who wouldn’t want to go back?
“My Old Man” is another song on the album that I was drawn to. This song is all about the tough, strong Dad he has and how he misses his strong mind, and how he used to get wound up so tight that you just knew when to steer clear. He talks of how his dad was a gambling man until he lost everything, but always worked hard to get it all back. His dad left too soon, and I think every man misses a piece of their dad.
The last song that I’ll be mentioning is “That’s No Way To Go”. This track touches my heart, as I am sympathetic to Alzheimer’s and the families that it has touched, and hurt. This song’s all about never being able to look back on your wild life, how it’s all just a blank canvas now, and all the memories are slipping away. It’s certainly not a good way to go. This song features great lyrics, and songwriting that will pull you in, and keep you listening.
Inspirational Interviewer and Promotional music lover for artists.
Born in Kingston, I grew up with the likes of Dan Akroyd and his blues influence and also The Tragically Hip, plus live shows downtown in the streets and country bands in the pubs.
I love music in all forms and genres. I can adapt my ear to enjoy and appreciate all instrumentals and vocals. I started writing about certain artists that I grew up listening to and then I reached out to artists for interviews. I have done over 20 interviews with artists and CEOs of industry companies from all over the world.
Now, with Canadian Beats I have an opportunity to improve my journalistic abilities and to get the word out there for artists, and best of all to go to shows and get that personal feeling. I get to represent Canadian music on a higher level. We need to open more doors and have more shows and venues, as well as get the world to come to us. That is my goal.
