Bonanza & Son On ResonanceFM
Wednesday 15th May 2013... 4:30pm

Del Barber live session:

Del releases his third and most accomplished album of Americana and Alt-Country to date. To say this man is talented would be a massive understatement when looking at his prolific work as both a musician, song-writer and producer. This is all the more impressive when one considers Barber was nominated for a 2011 Juno Award for his 'Love Songs of the Last Twenty’ LP. Del also won two Western Canadian Music Awards for 'Independent Album of the Year' and 'Roots Solo Recording of the Year'.

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada but a well weathered traveller who makes Jack Kerouac look like a bedroom-dwelling wall flower, Barber has travelled the length and breadth of Canada and the USA on his own, personal road movie collecting song ideas along the way and creating a deep depth of narrative and cinematic imagery within his compositions. The results are beautiful yet gritty balladry that leave dusty footprints in the mind and traces of Country-Folk traditions of the late, greats of classic, Americana songwriters. The latest album picks up the trail with a set prairie parables, finely, crafted confessionals and twang-kissed, tongue-tales of desires lived, left and lost.

+ A pre-recorded live session from one of our favourite Bloodshot Records signings 'Ha Ha Tonka’ all the way from Springfield, Missouri via California, New York and Kansas no less. The boys came by the studio yesterday morning and put in one of the best performances yet including an exclusive brand new song.

+ Our usual featurettes including 'Celluloid Country' where we look at a film which features Americana significantly in its soundtrack.

+Competitions gig ticket and cd giveaways.

+ The best of all the latest, up-coming Country & Americana releases.
