Gordie Tentrees – North Country Heart

  • October 17, 2012

Canadian singer-songwriter Gordie Tentrees is out with his fifth full-length North Country Heart, a follow-up to 2009’s Mercy or Sin. Accompanied by Ken Hermanson (banjo, lapsteel, guitar), Bob Hamilton (upright bass, pedal steel), Patrick Hamilton (drums), Annie Avery (piano, organ) and Sarah MacDougall (vocals), Tentrees pays homage to the remote and vast Arctic landscape that he’s called home for more than a decade – the Yukon. With Juno Award-winning producer Bob Hamilton (Kim Barlow, Sarah MacDougall, Kim Beggs), over the course of a dozen songs Tentrees records his love for the land and shares its heartbreaking secrets all through a range of country music that fuses in rock, blues and folk. Standouts include opener “Gypsy Wind” and “Holy Moly.” – Written by SMarx
