AND THAT’S THE KIND OF WEEK IT’S BEEN
…and it’s only Wednesday!
The 2 Kens host not only a great weekly comedy show You Can’t Make It Up they also do a wonderful monthly show called Club Indie – an in-depth interview with a musical guest and their songs. This month features none other than -Jim Armstrong. Thank you Ken and Ken for a terrific time and helping to tell the world about Jim and his music.
Ken D., 2Kens Comedy Club Indie & YCMIU: “The best music is that which connects to the listener on an emotional level and if that is the standard, then Jim Armstrong’s music is among the very best. He’s overcome more adversity in his life than anyone should have to bear, and perhaps as a result, many of his songs celebrate everyday people who have beaten the odds and overcome hurdles of their own. Plus, his music is just plain enjoyable to listen to – so, enjoy!”
Joe Chisholm, IndieCan Radio: “Junction Road is a transporter ride from the front porch, to behind the wheel of the car, to a time long, long ago, to afternoon tea with your own conscience. It’s a well written Americana meets Rock ‘n’ Roll ride from start to finish.”
Valsam, RootsTime.be: “Jim Armstrong may take some time in getting new work out on the market, but if the quality of all his work is as high as it is on “Junction Road” we can only admire this approach and conclude that this Canadian multi-instrumentalist should have his work labelled “pretty damn good stuff”: an absolute must for all the loyal fans of the best roots rock and Americana music.”
And how about this terrific quote – thanks Keith 🙂
Keith Ross Leckie, Emmy and Gemini award-winning writer/producer (Lost In The Barrens, Journey Into Darkness, The Arrow, Coppermine): “Always a great fan of Jim’s music, I find this new album “Junction Road” begins where “Mudtown” left off and sets a new standard. The band has never been tighter and the arrangements bring out their best, but what is superlative on this album is the lyrics. Jim creates stories and characters, strong visual images and metaphors that make you feel like you’ve just watched a dramatic movie in your head, all in three and a half minutes. “David and Jenny”, “Worn Out Shoes” and “Breaker’s Point” are good examples. “Dollars In His Wallet” is just a classic display of Jim’s hard driving rock and roll. Congratulations Jim. Whatever is inspiring you, don’t let it stop!“
