Published Jun 29, 2011Since launching late last year, Vancouver-based imprint Light Organ Records has brought us West Coast takes on country rock (Sun Wizard), '50s radio pop (Louise Burns) and gloomy goth (Mode Moderne). The label is further exploring its horizons with B.C.-bred rootsy folk artist Adrian Glynn.
A press release explains that Glynn's debut disc, Bruise, "has the ability to hypnotize listeners with tales of sinners, lovers, and redemption-seekers."
Glynn honed his story-telling skills as an actor, playing "pimps and junkies" before becoming a singer-songwriter. He further refined his craft while living in India in 2008. There, his tunes made national radio play and TV exposure. He also spent his time there teaching guitar to youth.
Composed mostly on acoustic guitars, slide guitars and the balalaika, the 12-song set will be released September 6. You can check out the slow-burning folk number "Seven or Eight Days" here or below.
