john gill is a folk singer/songwriter from nova scotia. the first thing that stands out on his latest album, 'visions', is his stony baritone.
this rough but pretty voice guides you through his melancholic folk melodies, joined at times with a nice female harmony. the band is subtle americana all the way, rich organs, steely strings and woody, plodding drums. 'visions' stands out from the pack of alt-country troubadour type albums for quality of production, voice, and songs. the townes van zandt worshipping '1000 nightfalls' is a standout track.
