Luke Michielsen :
Luke Michielsen’s music is bright indie folk. With a writing style similar to Neil Young and vocals reminiscent of R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, he shows a rare aptitude for melody and provocative lyrics.
“One of the most underrated songwriters in Canada and can easily be placed amongst Jackson Browne and James Taylor.” -Rootsville.
With a star studded lineup of instrumentalists believing in his songwriting including PEI’s own Catherine MacLellan, who sings a haunting duet alongside Alguire titled My Sweet Rosetta worthy enough to stand the hair up on the back of your neck or bing a tear to your eye at first listen. With constant comparisons to early recordings of bands, Wilco and Blue Rodeo, renowned musician Bob Egan of said bands, also accompanies Alguire on this new recording with beautiful yet haunting pedal steel that drifts throughout several tracks only bringing these thoughtful words more weight and meaning. Miranda Mulholland adds timeless fiddle playing throughout while keys player Jesse O’Brien interweaves organ and piano magically like a subtle thread throughout adding depth to the pictures being drawn.
