  • Honorable Mention

    Posted by on February 5, 2011

    Nice! We made honorable mention for Best Albums of 2010 along with Josh Ritter, Jars Of Clay, and Johnny Cash!

    under skies Hark the Herons
    Under Skies (independent)
    Released May 2010
    Mark Moring


    Style: Inventive alternative folk; compare to Sufjan Stevens, Welcome Wagon, Feist

    Top tracks: “Bend, Break,” “Layers of Unknown,” “You’re Pretty but You’re Hollow”

    After more than a decade of helping his band, downhere, make critically acclaimed albums in the CCM market, bass player Glenn Lavender and longtime friend Kalyn Allan, both of Cambridge, Ontario, teamed up for a side project—and it’s a good one. What started out as a whim—they tried to write a song for a made-for-TV movie, but were beaten out by Michael Buble—turned into a year of songwriting and now an album that would be fit nicely on Sufjan Stevens’ Asthmatic Kitty label. Creative melodies, thoughtful lyrics celebrating love both human and divine, and Allan’s mesmerizing vocals add up to what one can only hope is the first of many CDs from Hark the Herons.
