The Daily Country review – The Never Ending Pageant

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

A lovely review that appeared on The Daily Country for my unreleased record ‘The Never Ending Pageant’.

http://thedailycountry.com/6/post/2014/06/album-review-colin-clyne-the-never-ending-pageant.html

Album Review Colin Clyne ‘The Never Ending Pageant’

Scottish born folk singer-songwriter Colin Clyne, is set to release his new album The Never Ending Pageant on Fat Hippy Records on July 21st. The album, produced & engineered by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Alan Sanderson (The Rolling Stones, Burt Bacharach), is a delightful slice of folk and Americana by way of Scotland.

Colin, who was crowned ‘Best Acoustic Act’ at the San Diego Music Awards in 2011 and 2012 (previous winners include Jason Mraz and Jewel) is an artist who is equally comfortable with upbeat folk tunes (“Toast The Happy Times”) as well as songs more melancholy (“Dunnotar Skies”). The lead off track, “Merry Go Round,” as well as “I’d Rather Do,” are pure goodness; they will instantly hook you with their melodies and subtle harmonies. All eleven tracks are well written and touch on themes universal and relatable (love, moving on after a relationship has ended and enjoying life).

And, if you are a lover of the harmonica (and who isn’t?), you will be thrilled to know the expressive instrument is well represented here on multiple songs including “Top Of The Mountain,” “Sizzle Not The Steak,” “Playing God” and the title track.

Colin Clyne has made an album that, whether you are in Scotland or the States, you will want to seek out and give a listen.
