Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

COLIN LINDEN

From the Water

2009-05-11

Chalk up another great CD from our Canadian friends. Legendary, prolific and veteran singer/songwriter/musician Colin Linden's From the Water is a terrific sound. And the crazy thing, this is the first I heard of him!! Colin is multiple Juno and Maple Award winner and a nominee for the Grammy's. He is one of the most in demand producers and players in Nashville- having worked with artists such as Bruce Cockburn, Emmylou Harris and Colin James. His songs have been recorded by The Band, Keb' Mo', The Blind Boys of Alabama and Michelle Wright (just to name a few) This CD has a lot of flavor. Sounds of The Band on tracks, #6 Between the Darkness and Light of Day (shades of a young Levon Helm!!!!) and #12. The CD also features some lowdown blues (#4) and a little Commander Codyish (# Trouble Only Comes In 3) . The CD ends with a soulful ( #14) God Will Always Remember Your Prayers. Highly recommend. Check out all the tracks, but #6 and #12 are my favorites.
