The Urban Peasants (EP) 2010



Listen to a tale. The Urban Peasants' folk-pop hybrid weaves melody and meaning. Throw it on like a mourner's shawl or wave it like a flag! When you mix brothers, friends, city boys and musicians with Van Morrison, Steve Earle, Leonard Cohen, The Waterboys, The Beatles (shall I go on?) you get what we've become. Our songs are uniquely Canadian by accident, not by design; Louis Riel, Robert Latimer, Tommy Douglas, English/French, Spry Point, Tom Thompson, Ken Danby, CFB Petawawa, the Great Lakes, the guy at the bar. You'll have to read hard to find better lyrics, and listen hard to find better songs.
