You don't have to be Canadian to appreciate this album-- but it helps!

If you want to see the whole country (or be reminded of why you love it) but you don't quite want to put on a winter coat and leave the house, just put this record on instead.

I only recently discovered the music of Liona Boyd. Having listened to much of her work over the last month in roughly chronological order, it's really interesting to see her come full circle artistically and personally with this album.

She explores her relationship with Canada with both deeply fond nostalgia for past places and people and also aching hope for its future promise. Her poetically vivid ballads combine with the intimate purity of her voice and a melodic fireside guitar-strumming style that makes you feel as if you're sitting right beside the artist in that canoe pictured on the cover. The superb production mixing of the album subtly layers distinctly Canadian sounds into the songs, as if the scattering of loons across a lake echoes in the distance like an instrument (though probably detectable only to Canadian ears!).

The experience of listening to the album (especially with headphones) is that it really feels as if you are drifting in a canoe across a misty lake on a crisp Canadian autumn, then hiking over the Rockies in winter, venturing into the Arctic north, arriving at the Maritimes in spring, and generally criss-crossing the full breadth of the country from coast to coast alongside a sage and gifted storyteller-guide, all while safe and warm on your couch. For this reason it's the perfect atmosphere-setter for a family home on a weekend or holiday.

I quite simply do not have the words to describe listening to this CD. Her guitar work has always been out of this world; who knew her voice would be too? A long hidden gift that has now been unwrapped will stay in my CD changer for a very, very long time. Thanks for coming home Liona, we are lucky to have you as a fellow Canadian:)

I have long enjoyed Liona Boyd's guitar music and was privileged to see her perform in concert. Who knew she was such a gifted songwriter too! This is also a very nice debut as a singer - she has a soft and soothing voice which complements the music well. A couple of the songs are quite poignant, knowing her history. Every Canadian will find something to relate to here.
And it's great listening!
