I was also lucky enough to see him back home in England when he was with The Civil Wars.
I really enjoyed his 2016 album, Beulah, and have just read on the Single Lock Records website that one of the artists that inspired him for this record was Jim Reeves. My Grandad was a big Jim Reeves fan and I spent many an afternoon with my Grandad listening to his Jim Reeves albums, which I’m now the proud owner of.
A Bright Resemblance by Light Conductor is today’s Track of the Day. Light Conductor consist of Jace Lasek, of the Besnard Lakes and Stephen Ramsay of Young Galaxy.
The track is taken from their debut album, Sequence One, being released on Constellation Records. I’m a big Besnard Lakes fan, got all their albums, and saw them live a couple of years ago, here in Cincinnati.
I hadn’t heard of Young Galaxy until now, so will be checking them out later.
Rhiannon Giddens was one of the founders of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, who I saw in Leeds, England. She’s released a couple of excellent solo albums and we’ve seen her perform live at Cincinnati and most recently in Columbus, OH.
