The Bearer of Bad News (LP)


This product is not available

Specific Description: Andy Shauf is a storyteller, a singer of heartbreak and regrets, isolation and loneliness, reflecting his prairie surroundings in Regina, Saskatchewan. Meticulously written over four years, Shauf's The Bearer Of Bad News is a warm and welcoming album, bathed in weathered piano, dampened drums, softy strummed guitars, and clarinet that lends a unique timbre to frequently brighten, or hauntingly underscore, the album's darker dimensions. The sound is a lilting, captivating pop that simultaneously conveys a yearning and unfolding heartache. Fans of Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, Harry Nilsson: take note.
