My five favourite songs at the moment:
1. Suicidewinder Ridley Bent
"This guy used to live in Whistler. I made a point of going to see him this year at the Vancouver Folk Fest. This song is quintessential Ridley. His stuff is very lyric-oriented. Im Johnny Cash when Im drinkin, Im the Clash when Im thinkin, Im Mad Max when Im drivin Im Mike Diamond when Im rhymin "
2. Let Me Be Xavier Rudd
"A very uplifting song about freedom from the Solace album. The whole album is great."
3. Ganja Babe Michael Franti
"Im listening to this right now. Ive gone to a lot of concerts where he ends up sitting on the stage at the end of the show with just his acoustic guitar. That happened at the Vancouver Folk Fest last year. Hes got so much soul! Every time I see him I feel so encouraged with whatever direction Im taking. He really pushes you to think. To feel you can make a difference."
4. Bisexual Slow Nerve Action
"This song is from The Soap Of Beautiful Women . I know its the old album but I just love it. It gives you your funk fix. I had that album with me when I was traveling back East a couple years ago. Whenever I listen it takes me back."
5. Girl From Ipanema Stan Getz
"I like to listen to this first thing in the morning when I have my coffee. Makes you think of walking on the beach. Theres something about the Portugese language Its so sexy."
"Dont believe anything you read."
