chris norwood - the year of the bear

i was sold on chris norwood's debut release 'the year of the bear' when i saw the cover, which depicts a cute bear who seems to have spilled his mug of honey beer! haha, i love bears.

haha what a cute bear!

the band in action

but this is about the music contained within, which is upbeat singer/songwriter folk/rock with simple, focused production...guitar, electric bass, and some classically informed fiddle (violin?) shredding and the occasional harmony for color. this provides a good showcase for the detailed and romantic landscapes that chris paints with his lyrics.
