“For 25 years Diamond Joe White has been the rough-hewn poet laureate of the oil rigs and rodeos of Southern Alberta. This Juno-nominated singer-songwriter who has toured with the likes of Merle Haggard and the Ozark Mountain Daredevils,recently put down his plumbing tools and picked up his guitar again in order to resume his career as a working man’s troubadour. After getting his old band back together – and adding the tasty dobro licks of producer Doug Cox – he hit the studio with a fistful of new tunes and old classics.With a voice as gruff as campfire coffee and the heartfelt language of a cowboy poet, Diamond Joe dishes out a beguiling serving of earthy Canadiana: prairie gospel, blue collar stomp-alongs, poignant ballads. Whether singing about Louis Riel or reciting one of his “spoken word poems”, this larger-than-life western Artist delivers the goods with Honestly – his unpasturized tales from the prairie and coastal heartlands are a welcome antidote to the big hair and bombast of Nashville’s New Country.”
