A multi-colored patchwork quilt of blues, country, roots-rock and Revolver-era pop. Purchase price includes free shipping to anywhere.
Memory Well is the second cd from extraordinary Nova Scotia singer/songwriter/guitarist Caleb Miles. Picking up where 2006’s Brickyard Road left off, the songs on Memory Well run the gamut from blues and country to roots-rock, Revolver-era pop and jazz-tinged standards to experimental loops made with rusty push mowers. Featuring Caleb’s multi-instrumental prowess on drums, bass, keyboards, as well as all manner of guitars and stringed instruments, Memory Well is augmented by tasty contributions from local musicians Caleb Hamilton on trumpet, Ariana Nasr on violin, Mark Bezanson on bass, Alex Porter on drums, and Bob Federer on piano.
Memory Well includes the original versions of Portland Rain and Broke Down, two of Caleb’s best-loved songs. Love, death, and a world gone crazy are all explored with sensitivity and grim humour. “One-trick pony” is not a term that applies to Caleb Miles; he’s got more than a few up his sleeve!
