Song of the Day from Ryan Boldt (of The Deep Dark Woods): “Mary Hamilton’s Last Goodnight”

On 27 December, 2011 by slowcoustic

Ryan Boldt - The Exchange, Regina SK


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”.

Follow Ryan Boldt on Facebook and follow on Twitter already!  You can also find The Deep Dark Woods and their newest album (our #3 album of 2011) “The Place I Left Behind” HERE.

    This is a large thank you for introducing me to so much excellent music for the past year. I’ve loved music all of my life and even though I am now retired and have a lot of leisure time find keeping up with what is new a major effort. So thank you again for sharing your interests and giving me hours of enjoyment.
