Review – Jonathan Becker and the North Fields

Album: Sober Dawn
Release Date: May 25, 2018
Genre: Folk/Rock

Looking for the next addition to your camping playlist? Then look no further than Ontario’s Jonathan Becker and the North Fields’s first full-length album, Sober Dawn. With roots in folk, punk, and country, the band has rocked the Ottawa Bluesfest and Cityfolk and is now prepping for a tour across both Canada and the States.

A 12-track extravaganza “rooted in a working-class ethos and a social conscience”, Sober Dawn starts strong and never once falters. From guitar-heavy, drumbeat-saturated opening track “Tiger Lilies” to the slow, punchy anthem of “Been Gone”, the gritty lead vocals and mesmerizing lyricism will hold listeners in place from start to finish.

Earnest, rhythmically diverse, and channelling classic rock, Sober Dawn is a must-listen this summer season.
