Halifax (but Hamilton-born) singer/songwriter Ben Caplan has sculpted an unpredictable and immensely entertaining album with Birds With Broken Wings (via Coalition Music). You never know what he'll be hitting the listener with but they'll love it!
It has a mainly a wonderful vaudeville meets gypsy music vibe. Ben is a man of many vocal style - he growls though a few numbers but then gets smooth and soulful just to prove he can. Bits of folk, jazz, lounge music, new age and more just float smoothly across these unique songs.
If you're looking for something different, pick up a CD at his live shows or through his online shop (though they are currently out of stock). You can also download it using iTunes.
