REVIEW: in the year you were born
The Young Novelists

Toronto six-piece Graydon James & The Young Novelists offers a textbook example of how to do things right. This latest release is pure James Lee Burke, spinning miniature stories masterfully and evoking images of small town life, capturing the spirit of untainted optimism and delivering every song with the kind of smart sounding earthy-pop we’ve come to expect from Blue Rodeo. Graydon James and his cohorts have won widespread praise and the chatter about this one is likely to be more roar than whisper. The launch party is at The Horseshoe tonight (Sept. 7) with Harlan Pepper, Strumbellas and the Unseen Strangers set to warm up the house.
