The best kept secret in music


"Comes With A Smile UK"

"I am struggling to find an original way to say that this album [Transparent] puts me in a similarly reverent position as the Ron Sexsmith debut. The brilliant opener "When She Appeared" is a terrific song, a tight piece of writing like Rosie Thomas's Two Dollar Shoes or Simon Neild's "We're Mostly Water". Opening with a simple guitar figure and brush drums, the vocals start and you swoon." - Richard Bell

"Georgia Straight"

"Canadian indie pop has a new hero." - Mike Usinger

"Eye Weekly"

"Booth sings about love, exile and loneliness like a real troubadour." - Alex Bozikovic


"It has to be humbling for this singer-songwriter, to be able to make or break someone's spirits using only his words and a melody." - Neil Haverty

"Americana UK"

"... a musician and singer of genuine quality. Simply because he conjures a style of mature, crafted music which is the essence of contemporary Americana." - RB


"Transparent sounds more like a high point in a lengthy career that a debut." - Mark Hamilton


"'When She Appeared'... This song by itself would rank a perfect 5." - Wilbur

"The Coast"

"Transparent, bursts with thoughtful lyrics, melodies by turns spare and sparkly, simple instrumentation... Booth has made a marvelously intimate record. It's reminiscent, in tone and content, of Tom Wait's Closing Time. It doesn't gave the bigness, the trembling-at-the-edge-of-Vaudeville Closing Time has, but it offers the same space, the same continuity that lets a collection of songs build on each other to tell a story. - Stephanie Domet

Feeling a bit camera shy


Hello, it's me. I write and record soft pop ditties at home in Calgary, Alberta. My albums get some airplay, I've performed to people around the world and I live in a community of talented artists who inspire me burn brighter. Life is good. The new album, Back Stories, will be released in CD format on March 29th but it's already here for your digital enjoyment:


Thank you for listening.
