Matt Epp regards himself as a writer of songs that he describes as "soulful folk." He’s fooling around with a bit of rock treatment for some new ones, but soulful folk it is. He likes Dylan, Young, Cohen and Jonathan Richman, and sees himself in their tradition. He comes from Winnipeg and had a career in film before he decided to be a singer-songwriter. There was only one problem, however: he couldn’t sing or play an instrument! Seven years, four recordings and hundreds of gigs later, he's solved that. He can both play and sing. He can also write superb songs. One of them, one of his "hits"—They Won’t Find the Bodies—is a sort of twisted reworking of James Taylor's You’ve Got a Friend with a vengeance, literally, involving images of gouged eyes and severed tongues. The CD it comes from has a bunch of others as good—little stories that Matt has turned into great songs.
In a music world littered with singer-songwriters, Adrian Glynn stands apart. The Vancouver-based troubadour takes any opportunity to defy convention: he has turned murder ballads into spell-binding, microphone-free serenades, and abandoned the standard rock band setup in favour of suitcase kick drums and clawhammer piano strings. In his intimate solo shows, Glynn continued to perfect his timeless blend of rough-hewn rock and dusty, Depression-era folk and blues. Audiences in countries as far-reaching as England and India were soon introduced to his vivid storytelling.
