Published Aug 29, 2014Some days you get chicken, some days it's feathers, but on September 30 it will be Sometimes Chicken, Sometimes Feathers. That's the name of the new album from Ontario songwriter Graham Nicholas.
The album was recorded at London, ON's Sugar Shack Studios with returning producer Aaron Comeau (Sam Cash & the Romantic Dogs, Dear Sister), who also helmed last year's Ruby, and Other Bedtime Stories EP.
According to a press release, the album features concise storytelling and irreverent humour within an "emotionally resonant world inhabited by troubled and love-hungry characters." His backing band apparently evokes the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the Band. For a taste of this, hear the mellow country rock number "Wandering Angel" at the bottom of this page.
