Review – Locomotive Ghost

Album: Into the Glow
Release Date: February 27, 2017
Genre: Indie-Folk/ Alt-Rock

From Nelson BC to Calgary AB, Mike Buckley and Ben Nixon have been attached musically. Then hooking up with the rest of the band members, they have created the new album from Locomotive Ghost, entitled Into the Glow.

“Your Eyes In Mine” is about a relationship that is on hold for the right reasons, not knowing what to say or feel, but as time goes on you start to see their eyes in your own eyes. It’s about the ups and downs, and the he said/ she said parts of a relationship. This track is a nice listen for a Sunday afternoon.

“Shake Awake” is a song about getting up and wanting to see clearly. Laura Schoenberg and Mike Buckley make a nice pair on vocals, as the rest of the band, Ben Nixon (Bass) and James Bundy (Drums) round out the band.

“Till I’m a Ghost” is my personal favourite on the album. It is about the devotion of love and being a soulmate till your love becomes a ghost in this world. He lets his love know he will be here till he’s a ghost. There’s a section of spoken word on this track and it creates a perfect blend, and makes the song complete.

If you like a mix of folk stories, with an alternative style, then you should purchase this release.

Connect with Locomotive Ghost:

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.
