    Ian Kelly - Ghosts of Memphis 8:00 PMAA / Licensed (Casbah Main Hall)First-off, you might say that hes the big guy with that unique voice an unusual fellow who makes music that you cant quite pigeonhole. It takes a while but eventually the intriguing arrangements, lyrics that stick with you and compelling melodies win you over. Thats what happened with his previous album Speak Your Mind. It was a real slow-burner, continuing to shift units more than two years after its release, going gold in Canada - marking 40,000 copies sold - just weeks before the launch of his brand-new third album, Diamonds & Plastic.Ian has always done it his way. Hes from Montreals west end, with an anglo mom and a franco dad, but he grew up mostly en franais, yet just to keep us a little off-balance hes always written and performed in the language of Dylan. He says thats just the way the songs come out. If you know Ian at all, you know full well the language choice was anything but a careerist move.an KTags:

Press

"On trouve quelque chose de neuf à se mettre dans l'oreille dans chaque chanson. Autre qualité: même étoffés, les arrangements n'entrent jamais en conflit avec les textes qui, dans une langue toute simple, abordent avec sensibilité des enjeux aussi complexes que la guerre et l'environnement. Ian Kelly n'est pas militant. Qu'il parle de son émotion devant un nouveau-né ou du sort de la planète, son propos est touchant et incarné. Et ses airs sont accrocheurs.Que demander de plus?*** 1/2
