Jim Bryson (Review)

Today I will review Jim Bryson’s Where The Bungalows Roam from Kelp Records.
The album was released on March 27, 2007.

Jim Bryson is the reigning Ottawa King of Folk-Rock at the moment.
Usually he plays the keyboards for Kathleen Edwards and the Weakerthans.

First time I heard his music was CBC Radio 3 when they played his song “The Wishes Pile Up” on rotation.
Saw him live last year at the Kelp 14 Anniversary party.
And various shows IE Bluesfest and Black Sheep Inn.

“Where The Bungalows Roam” is a very acoustic, mellow album.
Except for Wishes Piles Up and The Options which is very upbeat with the guitar riffing.
Very raw and emotions with the songs he sings like in Flowers, By The Bridge and Fire Watch.

This is a really great album.
Catchy and enjoyable to listen to.

Best Tracks:

  • Flowers
  • By The Bridge
  • Clear The Crowds
  • The Wishes Pile Up
  • Fire Watch
  • All The Fallen Leaves
  • The Options

Jim will be playing with the Acorns tomorrow night at the Mayfair Theatre.
