Album: Like a River
Release date: January 9, 2017
Like a River is a great album with such a diverse sound of back street blues and jazz, as well as great songwriting and vocals. Coming from Kingston, my hometown, allbut6ix sure has made some great moves over the years, across the world in Europe and achieving great sales in North America.
This release has a very soft blues sound with a lot of folk influence in the writing, telling stories of the past and present, as well as making sense of everything going on around us. A few of the great tracks on this album that I’d like to touch on are:
“Beautiful World” which is about just taking chances and doing what you love, as well as what you want to get out of life. Go for the gold and make your own Beautiful World and when that well runs dry, make everything you do count. Just do it!
Another great track off this album is “I don’t need to Know” which is about just that; not needing to know about who was in your lovers life before you became a part of it. I don’t need to know about all of the drama before we met. This song is awesome with great soft lyrics coming from Dwight Druick. The music is phenomenal.
“Life Is A River” speaks for itself. It is such a river! This song is all about that truth to life and how it can go from lounging in a tube and floating down the river to hitting those big, washed out rapids in life on said rivers. Just make sure you are wearing your life preserver, so you don’t drown in it all.
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.
