B.C.-based folk artist Jack Garton is back with his brand new album, Love You Over Time, which you can stream exclusively on Aesthetic Magazine below.
Garton recorded Love You Over Time in Vancouver and Nanton, AB with Canadian music legends Steven Drake and Steve Loree, and blends light and dark humour, digging deeper into the theme of commitment that he explored on his first full-length album, Move The Mess Around. Garton recorded all of the songs live off the floor, and the performances are stellar.
“What we play is simply fun and from the heart,” says Garton. “There are lots of soul-food flavours in our music. We’re a roots band cooked to a rock’n’roll temperature, or a rock’n’roll band spiced with Country and New Orleans. But above all every song is from the heart – we keep it honest and let the good times roll!”
Steeped in the solitude of the mountains and islands of the Pacific Northwest and raised in the boisterous, irreverent East Vancouver arts community, Jack Garton’s music is a dance party for the vulnerable at heart. Since releasing his first full-length album, Move The Mess Around, in 2016, Garton has been steadily playing western Canadian festivals, clubs, halls and house concerts, and is set to hit the road once again with across BC this summer (dates below).
