Feeling down and blue? Whiskey Town, the new CD by local singer-songwriter Joanne Stacey will fix you right up.
This compilation of eight songs is occasionally is largely upbeat and hopeful but has its bitter sweet moments, especially in the final cut, One Last Chance Song.
While Joanne wrote all of the songs but she had some help from Janine Carey-Bourke, who performs with her in Sister Girl, CD Schwartz and Alanna Myrol on five of them. While the CD’s piano tracks were recorded on the Revelstoke United Church’s grand piano, the overall production was recorded and mixed at Earthtone Studios in Salmon Arm and later mastered in Calgary.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable album that should reverberate amongst Joanne’s many, many local fans.
