This track has seriously been on repeat for about 2 weeks and qualifies for “Best New Music” already. You know him, but do you know him as a “solo artist”? Ryan Boldt of The Deep Dark Woods looses none of the prairie roots magic with his own material in comparison to the DDWs.
The track is “Mary Hamilton’s Last Goodnight” and is a spectacularly slow and waning Canadiana track. The signature vocals of Boldt that immediately bring you to those achingly beautiful tracks from his day job as lead of the Saskatchewan indie heroes The Deep Dark Woods. I apologize for consistently mentioning the band as this track stands alone as proof of Boldt as a solo artist (even if he isn’t one). Thanks again to Zachary Lucky & the Prairie Roots Revue for bringing this recording to my attention. Everyone, enjoy your new favourite track, “Mary Hamilton’s Last Goodnight”.
