John Gracie-CD-Hollow Street-In Review

John Gracie, multiple award winner is a Canadian Folk/Country Music Artist from Halifax, N.S. has recently released his 15th album in July, 2017 entitled, Hollow Street.

John was born in Glace Bay, Cape Breton and is a 3 time East Coast Music Award winner for Male Artist in 1989, 1990 and 2000. He was Juno nominated and RPM Music Awards. His song, Pass It On, is the theme song for food banks across Canada.

With this new album, Hollow Street, John has returned to his roots, presenting his music with his vocals and his acoustic guitar. In his liner notes, he discusses how he missed the 60's movement by a few years but still carries the philosophy.

The album contains 18 tracks and are sung to perfection. Here are the title songs:

Blowin' in The Wind-Hollow Street-Cryin' a Lot Lately-Hideaway-I Look Deep In Your Eyes-Love Song-Knockin' on Heaven's Door/You Can't Always Get What You Want-Sit Down Young Stranger-Grand Central Station-Dirty Old Town-Birds of Joy-Four Stong Winds-Who Will Stop The Rain-The Last Thing on My Mind-The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald-When I See You-If I Were a Sailor-Where Have All The Flowers Gone

Hideaway, song No 4 on the album, was inspired while John was writing his album, A Gene MacLellan Tribute. It is an emotional ballad that many will relate to.

Gracie produced this album that features himself on acoustic guitar, Will Paynter on stand up bass, Brad Conrad on electric guitar and Martin Davidson on saxophone.

This is a very fine well produced album and John is at his best with his vocals on all songs. Atlantic Seabreeze gives this album a full 5 star + rating out of 5 stars.
