“Acid folk” was born in an old garage off Clinton Avenue in Toronto, concocted by Tom Wilson from Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, a few Cowboy Junkies, and some Skydiggers.
Allowing bass, hypnotic rhythms and a lot of groove into their songwriting circle, the artist collective LeE HARVeY OsMOND created a sound that would creep out of the Northern woods and across the Great Lakes into the South, the same way The Band did forty years before them.
Tom Wilson (guitar and vocals) struck Canadian rock gold in the ‘90s as the leader of the much-loved Junkhouse, and then found a whole new audience as a crucial component of roots-rock super-group Blackie and the Rodeo Kings!
LeE HARVeY OsMOND released this very week their second LP ,. It’s called The Folk Sinner and features a list of friends that’s very impressive.
Colin James, Colin Linden, Colin Cripps, Oh Suzanna, Hawksley Workman, Paul Reddick, Producer Michael Timmons, his sis Margo, Andy Maize and more.
THIS is music head and shoulders above most releases on both sides of the Border.
