âProof of Loveâ is the follow up to Old Man Luedeckeâs widely acclaimed second album Hinterland. Produced by multi Juno Award winner Steve Dawson, this recording finds the pride of Chester, Nova Scotia, well loved for the stark joyous simplicity of his powerful banjo driven solo shows, working with a full band for the first time.
Recorded live off the floor in just a couple of days at the Factory Studio in Vancouver, âProof of Loveâ captures the thrill of hearing music made in the moment. The band includes John Raham (The Be Good Tanyas, Kinnie Starr) on drums, Mark Beaty (The Be Good Tanyas) on bass, Adrian Dolan (The Bills) on fiddle, Steve Dawson on guitars and Alice Dawson, Rose Cousins, and the Sojourners on back-up vocals. The result is a hooky unique take on folk music that swaggers with a breezy depth reminiscent of John Prine or a more lyrical John Hartford. The songs remain, as always, powerful early folk-inspired offerings that continue to marry the warmth and complexity of Old Man Luedeckeâs banjo interplay with the emotional lyricism that has won him a devoted following.
âProof of Loveâ has some unusual heroes painted in some of the best and most exciting language weâve had from Old Man Luedecke yet. Thereâs Zoe, who finds lawns a yawn and plants a garden instead at her suburban home and thus is the âSpirit of the age, a breaker of the cage, sheâs a proof of loveâ. Thereâs the hero of âAinât Goin My Wayâ, the everyman that sings about overstretching himself whoâs âinner napoleonâ hastens him to a fall. âSad as a Forestâ details the bitterness of a single leaf in the fall whose life could have been brilliant but feels, instead, âsad as a forest thatâs all been cut downâ. âBig Group Breakfastâ is a celebration of the hangover meal where friends gather in a diner and the song revels in how such rituals help get them through it all. Old Man Luedeckeâs âProof of Loveâ shows again that special catchy poetic quality which makes his music so endearing and enduring.
Old Man Luedecke has been busy since the release of his last album. He has been a hit at many major North American folk festivals and has supported acts such as Feist, The Be Good Tanyas, Corb Lund, and Joel Plaskett at both club shows and soft seater venues. He has appeared on festival stages with the likes of Kris Kristofferson, David Francey, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Jill Barber and Buck 65. It was in fact, Luedeckeâs driving banjo riff on Buckâs 65âs âIndestructible Samâ that won the CBC Radio 3 Bucky Award for âBest Hookâ for his fellow east coast songwriter.
Old Man Luedecke will continue to tour relentlessly and watch for him as he brings his âProof of Loveâ to your town.
