““Old Highway New Sky” by Mark Gillick, a Canadian born Texas songwriter with a tinge of the Irish balladeer contains all original songs. Think of it as a mellow Texas road trip. At times some of these songs bring to mind Steve Goodman doing Michael Smith’s “The Dutchman”. Songs include “Ontario Moon”, (“the radio is playing my favorite Roy Orbison tune, in dreams I keep searching under this Ontario moon”) and “Galveston Rain”. Several soft songs about encounters at a distance, “The Keeper” with a simple arrangement and tight vocal harmony and “Slow Country Waltz” have a simple sense of longing. Gillick was born in Ontario, birthplace of Gordon Lightfoot whom he cites as an inspiration for the vignette type songs that give a glimpse into everyday life. Apparently London and Orillia aren’t that far apart. Take a road trip down “Old Highway New Sky”.”

“The long-awaited full release from Mark Gillick is finally here. This Texas folk songster offers a collection of life-inspired ballads that will take you from love to travel, from remembrance to rejuvenation. Gillick’s homegrown style calls forth a comfort for the listener and prompts visions of places and scenes all too familiar. The haunting Peter Yarrow influences allow the listener to embrace each song like an old friend, especially on “Slow Country Waltz.” Gillick employs the services of two fellow MTM members in Mike Darnell and T.C. Smythe on the project, as well as the talents of a host of other adept pickers as he assembles this fitting aggregation of well-formed tunes. The album is an artistic archive for Gillick, chronicling his variations of the genre. The bonus track is somewhat of a departure from the theme of the album, but then most bonus tracks do that. This one is a treasure, an up-tempo anthem to “My Grandfather’s Hat.” Lyrically sound, Gillick’s writin”
