Avalanche To Wandering Bear
(Do Right!)
Fans of Jenn Grant and The Heavy Blinkers will fall for pop-pianist Valery Gore. Like Grant, there’s that sweet voice, and both write big songs that journey along with unexpected turns. Catchy “Shoes of Glass” should satisfy anyone missing the Blinkers’ summery pop. During her experiment with jazz-fusion on “Scared,” a tribute to singer Karen Krog, Gore sounds closer aligned with LA’s The Bird and the Bee’s music than anything recorded under the shadow of the CN Tower. It’s not all sweetness though: “Worried” juxtaposes horns with pretty subversive lyrics like “Without that beautifully worried head, there’d just be a bleeding neck.”
