New Album Release: Justin Rutledge’s “The Early Widows”

Justin Rutledge

Other than being much more attractive than myself, Justin Rutledge has a new album out called “The Early Widows”.  This album is something I was really looking forward to.   The album is chock full of Justin’s signature delicate vocals over numerous ballads with just a bit of twang for good measure.  Ever since his fantastic track “Alberta Breeze” from his Man Descending album from a couple of years back, I can’t get enough of this guy.  I know the die hard fans will go to an earlier album “The Devil On a Bench in Stanley Park”, which was pretty darn great but Man Descending is a closer musical partner to his latest release.  Current favourite track is “Carry On”, “Islands” or even “All Around This World” – each one molasses slow, beautiful vocals and the exact type of song I think of when Justin Rutledge comes to mind.

Enjoy the lead off single and video for “Be A Man” below!
