TIM HUS - BUSH PILOT BUCKAROO (Stony Plain)

I'm a big fan and delighted Stony Plain has stepped up and signed this quintessential Albertan, the Stompin' Tom of the foothills. Hus has an amazing ear for the world of the regular, lunchpail schmo, the legion boozer or, indeed, the trucker "cashin' in my snow chains" in "Dempster Highway." Then there's the story of the displaced Maritimer working the oil sands in "A Hundred Grande" or the one about the rust bucket Fargo pickup "held together with baling wire" in "Cattlerack Cadillac." Like his pal Corb Lund, Hus is a singular Canadian voice and well worth a serious listen.

B+ - John P. McLaughlin
