Cowboy junkies

I have just been introduced to this band on my Spotify.
Never heard of them before, the song Crescent moon blew me away, I then listened to a lot of their music and some of the bass lines are very melodic, and the singer has the smoothest of voices, I thought Tarja from nightwish was really smooth but I think this gal has got her covered.
Other notable songs with great bass lines are
first recollection
A common disaster
Would love to hear some feedback
Cheers brian

Nice @b.s.excavations Brian… At first listen I seemed to have been taken back to a 1970’s era Fleetwood Mac with the soothing yet strong vocals of a young Stevie Nicks…

Hey @ lanny,
I’m half way through reading get tusked which is a book written by the sound engineers who recorded Fleetwood Mac’s album Tusk.
There was a lot of chemicals used back then!

Hahaha… Yup, sure were… Kinda expected though. Tons of nose candy - all just part of the music recording business back then.

Suddenly I’m transported back 25+ years… look at Mazzy Star, Portishead and similar. Very ambient with powerful singers

Portishead ! Now they were a band that really caught my attention even deep in my metal years

I’ve always been eclectic when it comes to music. Oddly enough most of what I like is heavy on the bass.

Probably Canada’s best musical secret.

Hi @raider61x,
Will check it out👍
The bass player has nice style and it’s not difficult.
