New Lee Harvey Osmond CD: The Folk Sinner

The Folk Sinner, the incredible second disc from Tom Wilson's musical collective, Lee Harvey Osmond, is a welcome evolution from the debut.  This new CD has its own soul but is still centred in the psychedelic folk sounds of its predecessor.

The former Junkhouse frontman's voice has got some amazing grit and growl to it here.  Tom's vocals can go really low but can also be smooth when the song warrants it.

As always, many of the tunes defy categorization. Tom's poetic lyrics are joined by pieces of jazz, country, folk, psychedelic rock, and more.  The results are surprisingly artful and cohesive songs.

Lee Harvey Osmond was always more of a community than a band (With Wilson as the ringleader).  As a result, returning musicians such as Ray Farrugia (Junkhouse) and Michael Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) are joined by special guests Paul Reddick, Margot Timmins (Cowboy Junkies), Andy Maize (Skydiggers), Colin Linden (Blackie and the Rodeo Kings), Hawsley Workman, Oh Susanna and more.

Highlights include a cover of Gordon Lightfoot's Oh Linda and Freedom, a song Tom originally penned for Colin James which has become a regular live number from Wilson's shows.

The CD is available in stores, at Tom Wilson's live performances and as a download on the Lee Harvey Osmond site (with two bonus tracks!) and  iTunes.

Below are a few tracks from the CD, courtesy of Tom Wilson.
