TIM HUS

BUSH PILOT BUCKAROO

(Stony Plain Records)

by Barry Hammond

It’s been a long road for Tim Hus since I reviewed his second disc, Alberta Crude, back in 2004. Since then he’s continued to pick up well-deserved momentum, attracted fans like Corb Lund and Ian Tyson, and moved to a bigger record label in Stony Plain.
His latest release features the likes of Myran Szott of Ian Tyson’s band, Craig Korth of Jerusalem Ridge and Gary Fjellgaard, who duets with Hus on Steven Fromholz’s The Man with the Big Hat, made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker.
As a songwriter, Hus just gets better and better. With songs of the quality of Battle River, Vancouver Blues and Hockey Mom, this is one bush pilot buckaroo that’s going to keep flying high until he becomes a national legend like Stompin’ Tom Connors.
Great stuff. Keep going, Tim!
