If you remember Dennis Ellsworth from his rock band The Rude Mechanicals, you'll find Hazy Sunshine less saucy but more melodic. Having moved from PEI to Ontario and back again, he has been prolific. Along the way, he co-wrote "Coke Machine Glow" with Gord Downie. It's included here, with Kinley Dowling's somber viola and lush production by the Skydiggers' Josh Finlayson. Ellsworth's tender vocal style suits the dreamy settings. The material makes him a worthy PEI counterpart to NB's David Myles and NS's Gordie Sampson. A philosophical tone on tunes like "Paradise" seems inspired by the rich rural vistas in this part of the world.
