Kyp Harness – Stoplight Moon

Canadian folk singer-songwriter Kyp Harness is widely respected among his peers, but way too unknown at least on this corner of the world where yours truly resides. Unfortunately his song vault isn’t my expertise either, because I’ve only been aware of him for a few years and I’m only familiar with the albums The Wrong Way and Can a Poor Man Get A Fair Trial? The latter one has a song that I really love called The Old Crone In The Forest. It’s a wonderful song that reminds me of the late great Townes Van Zandt with whom Kyp has also shared a stage.

Kyp Harness just released his new album Stoplight Moon and I’ve been listening to it a lot lately. It ranges from unashamedly romantic slices of melodic pop heaven all the way to a country song of the hurtin’ kind. My own favourite is this album opener All I Need that is a great pop song. It also reminds me a bit of The Go-Betweens, which is never a bad thing.
