New Music From Indie-Artists Jeffrey Halford & The Healers, Ketch Harbour Wolves and Heavy Hearts
Singer/songwriter Jeffrey Halford has recently delivered a new album titled "West Toward South" with his band The Healers. This new ten track release hits right into the root of American music, flowing between country, blues and just good old Americana sound. The album begins with the storied, spoken-word lyrics of the title song "West Toward South," as the music adds emotion to the song. The tempo quickens, only slightly, for the classic country vibe of "Deeper Than Hell," before taking the energy back down for the dark blues of "Dead Man's Hand" and "Three Quarter Moon." The gentle, acoustic ballad of "Sea Of Cortez" sounds as if it was recorded around the campfire one evening after a few beers. Jeffrey Halford and The Healers wrap up their new album with the slow, steady, Americana stomp rhythm of "Gallows" and the country tale of the "Ballad Of Ambrose And Cyrus."

Next up, is the latest release from the Toronto-based band, Ketch Harbour Wolves. Their new album titled "Avalon" feature a dozen tracks, beginning with the ambient pop energy of "I Will Take Your Word For It" and the explosive modern rock sound of "The Matador." The album's lead single "Little Magic" has an undeniable, addictive chorus and melody that easily gets stuck in your head with its simplicity. Ketch Harbour Wolves add a bit punk fury and energy to their sound with "Take Us To Your Leader," before delivering the new wave rock appeal of "Black 47." The band finish up their new album with the powerful blast of "Bloody Money" and the quiet, emotional ballad "Yours, Still."
