Tom Russell – Blood and Candle Smoke (Shout Factory / Universal Music Canada)

tomrussellOn his newest record, Americana-folk singer Tom Russell perfects the art of storytelling in song. There is a depth to the songs and characters in these songs that, like any good movie, will keep you wondering what is around the corner. Like Townes Van Zandt and Dylan before him, Russell holds your attention through these 12 tracks and makes you wonder how such a great talent has so quietly chipped away at his music career to date.

Highlights include Criminology, The Most Dangerous Woman In America, Finding You and East of Woodstock , West of Vietnam.
