Moment to Moment
Self released / Renegade Music
****1/2 out of 5
An instantly likeable artist who produces an album that seems to grab you by the unmentionables and never seems to let go.
Having been born in Vancouver but raised in the wonderfully named Deep River in Ontario, Gerry is someone who many will come to love and adore. Having written all the songs on this ten-track album, it is thanks to his vast musical experience, which stretches back to the 1960’s, that you find this album being a professional production which impresses on all counts.
Demonstrating the versatility of Gerry’s vocals, When I Say That sounds utterly grand. Performed minimally, it is reminiscent of Sam Baker in many ways which is never a bad aspect of a tune whatsoever. The title song of the record is just as good as the aforementioned. With a quirky and upbeat picking approach, his likeable vocals come across ever so well once more and the song in itself should find itself being played on a whole host of European radio stations at the very least.
This being his second solo album, a third must surely be a possibility.
Having received some great feedback already, Gerry Griffin flies the flag for Canadian music high and proud and puts many of his contemporaries to shame.
