Jay Aymar

"Given the glut of urban hipsters doing roots music, it's heartening to see that there are still populist hardcore Canadian troubadours making the rounds: add Sault St. Marie born Toronto based - Jay Aymar. He won fans with his last album Halfway Home and returns here with an even stronger effort. Fiddle and pedal steel are put to good use on country/folk ballad "Garbo and Hepburn," while the vocal harmonies of Angela Hilts and Jadea Kelly add depth to some tracks. A lovely duet with Kelly on "Worthless String of Pearls" is an album highlight. The title track has a gentler, sparser feel, showing Aymar can sing sensitively when needed. There's a little bravado in "Hold On Nashville," with Aymar threatening to conquer Music City. He may, in fact, be just a little too real for Nashville, but we'll gladly keep embracing him.
