    I’m a sucker for anything canadian, I’m a sucker for anything folkie…a double whammy here. Reminds me of early Bruce Cockburn, love the I just woke up and need a double shot mocha latte NOW voice. The magical Ash, finding magical things.

    Bought it. If not love, it’s fascination at first listen. Like his jangly, unvarnished sound; harp snoring; theatricality; shades of freak-folk, though more folk than freak. The cover art’s not bad either! Thanks again, Ash, for always freshening up our playlists.

    Ok, that description was irresistible. Glad I clicked. Thanks, Ash.
