Zachary Lucky is unapologetically old-school country, armed with a husky, baritone voice – He often receives comparisons to songwriters such as Gordon Lightfoot and Kris Kristofferson. He sings of Canadian places and people as knowingly as he might Townes Van Zandt or the Rio Grande. It’s a relatable show on many levels, and conjures universal feelings that have passed through our collective timelines. Already hailed as a master storyteller by outlets ranging from No Depression to The Globe and Mail, and recently nominated best solo artist of the year at the 2017 Canadian Folk Music Awards, Lucky’s Everywhere A Man Can Be is his most powerful statement to date.
THE KELLY SONG COLLECTIVE
The Kelly Song Collective have been together for half a century. Brothers John and Joe Kelly played air guitar to the Beatles in their bedroom, before being set loose on the Toronto bar scene; apprenticeship for the song writing and playing that defines the record.
“There’s a melancholy and rawness to the Kellys’ music that’s hard to deny. They clearly appreciate the power of words and understand how to weave them together.” Karl Magi, Hub Pages Music
Call it acoustic, folk, singer songwriter or whatever pigeon hole is trending these days, the goal is writing great songs. Maybe you’ll hear of echoes of Townes and Bob, and like Leonard and Stan, the muse remains life, love and this country.
“The Kelly Song Collective’s Unless and Until is a collection of gritty, deeply felt roots-folk songs, filled with resonant imagery, unexpected lyrical twists & turns, and a heart-on-sleeve authenticity that grabs you from the get-go.” Grant Stovel, CKUA Radio
