Under Your Shadow

Under Your Shadow

Disc review

Canada’s unsung song-poet laureate Al Tuck – the greatly mystifying, sadly undiscovered by most and wickedly blessed – drops what may be the best album of his buried-meets-storied career, the hauntingly beautiful Under Your Shadow. Bound to the East Coast, Tuck carries on a built-in Maritime cowboy storytelling tradition, with one eye on the history of his windswept homelands and one eye on his own deeply personal battles and demons. Displaying a wry wit and the gift of the gab, Tuck will dazzle with his wily tongue, cigarette-soaked croak and slick six-stringed fingering through tales of folk, country, blues and lite pop.
