"Adrien Sala "High Water Everywhere""

Adrien Sala
High Water Everywhere
Dollartone Records

I know only a few things about Adrien Sala:

- He's from Winnipeg, and hangs out with the D. Rangers.
- He's a songwriter and guitarpicker of considerable skill.
- Vocally, he sounds like the lost son of Townes Van Zandt.

His debut album is as fine a slice of (whatever that is) as I have heard in six years of writing this column. His phrasing is spot-on, the instrumentation is warm and dusty, and his songs have insightful depth, but not too much.
Take a chance and find this album. Buy it. And be ready to be carried away on a haze of country clouds hanging aloft.

Adrien Sala: A Brief Biography

Hailing from the Canadian prairies, Adrien Sala has been captivating audiences with his unique blend of country roots since he first began performing a short time ago. Whether you catch him performing solo, or when he’s being supported by his rotating cast of musicians and friends, his deeply affecting songs leave the listener drenched in the brooding reverie of Jimmie Rodgers, Van Zandt and Newbury while remaining entirely their own.

His first full length album, “High Water Everywhere”, was recorded and co-produced with the assistance of Jaxon Haldane and Tom Fodey of Winnipeg’s beloved bluegrass royalty, the D. Rangers. Some of Winnipeg’s finest musical talents have also assisted in its creation, including Chris Carmichael and Romi Mayes, as well as ex-Fred Eaglesmith dobro player Dan Walsh. The album charted nationally at various campus radio stations and is currently listed as a top album pick by the CBC’s Galaxie Radio folk/roots channel programmer Roch Parisienne. It was released in June 2006 on Dollartone Records and is available through Festival Distribution.

For the past two years Adrien has been charming crowds at numerous venues around Winnipeg. He has shared the stage with Romi Mayes as well as Andrew Neville and the Poor Choices, toured Western Canada with the D Rangers, taken part in the young performers program at the Winnipeg Folk Festival in 2005 and was featured at the Harvest Moon Festival in 2006.

Watch out for this fledgling singer/songwriter as he’s certain to make his presence felt in the Canadian roots scene in the years to come.
