A simple soundtrack for prairie life.
Nostalgic walks down four Manitoba roads were the inspiration for John K. Samson’s newest album, Provincial. In this collection of simple, prairie-inspired folk tunes, Samson reflects on his life in Manitoba with brassy guitar and a reminiscent tone. Samson’s strength truly lies in his lyrics: The music is creaky and lackluster at times, but Samson’s amusing wit and careful words make every song a kind of sweet, untainted poetry - a narration for those nostalgic moments.
