Sean McCann – Lullabies For Bloodshot Eyes (Warner Music Canada)

Great Big Sea multi-instrumentalist Sean McCann steps away from his multi-platinum band to release his first solo effort. As you might have gathered from the album’s title, the record isn’t necessarily the most upbeat affair for the whole 30 minutes that the record runs.

There are many poignant ballads to be found here including opening track Somewhere as well as Don’t Cry while tracks like Hold Me Steady and Lazy Lover inject a couple of doses of rambunctiousness that every Great Big Sea fan will easily and happily identify with.
