Stephen Fearing – Between Hurricanes (LowdenProud Records)

digipak6p-111-TRMuch like John Hiatt before him, Nova Scotia’s Stephen Fearing can get away with wearing many musical hats and come out sounding like a winner. Fearing’s newest record leans heavily upon the folk music realm, every song anchored by his earthy, baritone vocals. There are many highlights to be found on Between Hurricanes including Wheel Of Love and Don’t You Wish Your Bread Was Dough, a song that could have easily been penned by Texan songwriter Guy Clark. Fearing proudly wears his influences while still maintaining a truly original voice.
