I love all music, but if I had to pick a genre that was my “power alley,” it would be singer-songwriter every day of the week, and three times on Monday. So I thought it only appropriate that before I got to sleep to head into Monday, I share one of my newest favorite musical finds – a Canadian fella named Liam Titcomb.
There is nothing more than I love more than the sound of a great singer and an acoustic guitar. Liam’s lilting voice pulled me in immediately and I made fast work of downloading his Love Don’t Let Me Down EP – which led to me immediately pre-ordering his new album, Cicada, set for release on August 7th. Anything this man sings, I want to own.
I’ll have to do a bit more buying because Liam’s been doing this songwriting thing for quite some time – he was signed to Sony Canada at age 15! Apparently, the Canadians are trying to keep him all to themselves…why am I just now hearing about this talented singer? Sorry ’bout your luck, Canada. I found your secret and I’m sharing it with the world.
Here’s a video of Liam performing one of the songs that is on the Love Don’t Let Me Down EP and that will be featured on the new record. I think I’ve played it 100 times in the three days I’ve had the EP. Here’s hoping it gives your Monday a little boost, too.
I didn’t realize that singer-songwriter was a specific type of music, but it definitely makes sense now. He’s quite good, good find! ALSO – I got your CD in the mail right before moving, so once I settle back in, I’m really excited to sit down and really appreciate what’s on it. xo
