Singer Wrote New Album Following Spinal Surgery

Singer Wrote New Album Following Spinal Surgery

Gladstone said that he found that music aided in his recovery. “The first time I heard live music during my rehabilitation, I broke into tears, some combination of emotional release of sorrow and joy,” he said. And making the music for Hourglass, his fifth album, was cathartic, he added…. Hourglass, a collection of nine exquisite songs about human fragility and strength, as time ticks away.

CBC Radio on Howard Gladstone

Howard Gladstone used to write about music. Now he writes songs. More importantly, he pens the kind of topical tunes that were the province of singer/songwriters before navel-gazing became the norm. His music is a tribute to the great artists who inspired him. ~Marc Rheaume, CBC Radio

Roots and Rain – CHRY Review

Reviewed by Radio York, CHRY, Toronto –
There’s nothing sweeter than a wonderfully raw voice that has a unique, laid-back, authentic and honest sound which only belongs to a singer whose music can really be felt by other people. From the minute that Howard Gladstone’s blues-inspired voice flowed into my ears, followed by a stream of Canadian folk guitar picking, I was lost and found at the same time.

Toronto Moon Magazine reviews Roots and Rain

“On Howard Gladstone’s fourth album in eight years, at least judging by the tracks from Roots and Rain that I’ve heard. I think this spiritual but often melancholy Folk and social justice balladeer has found a new groove and some fresh inspiration… His ballad “Tammy (The Wheels of Justice)” in support of a woman who was unjustly convicted of child murder based on the testimony of a discredited pathologist (included on the new disc)

“Alt Country” reviews Roots and Rain

“Alt Country” reviews Roots and Rain

For me, music deals with emotions. A song should touch the heart and soul of the listener. When the music is over, you should be filled with very intense feelings. “Roots and Rain” from the Canadian songwriter Howard Gladstone does this all. Just like the three earlier CD’s: “Sunflowers light the Room” (2002), “Candles on the River” (2005) and “The Breath in the Wind” (2007) this new CD excels in subtlety and relaxation.

Candles on the River Reviewed by Rambles

Howard Gladstone has a particular brand of folk music that’s unlike most of what I’d call great music. Though his music is more complex than a lot of folk styles, his lyrics, his voice and the slow, flowing rhythm that is consistent all the way through the CD is basically a heart-warming melody. It’s not quite as sweet as maple syrup — more like the warm burst of a blueberry when you bite into the pancake. And no matter what your station, regardless of your fears, your failures, your hopes or awards, eating a warm blueberry pancake is a fine, large human experience.

The Band Website

Review by Jerry Tenenbaum Posted to The Band Website

It was just over 2 years ago that I reviewed Howard Gladstone’s first CD “Sunflowers Light The Room” in the Band Guestbook. He had just performed it at Clinton’s on Bloor St. in Toronto. It seemed appropriate to review it here. Howard had links to Robbie; and his music echoed much of what the Band and others near to the Band represented.

The Live Music Report on Candles on the River

Howard Gladstone wrote the tunes he sings on his second album of folk/roots country songs. A one-time music reviewer, Gladstone’s songs are interesting because of his passion for musical icons, people and places that he celebrates and laments in tunes like the 8-minute “Down to The Delta,” and “Too Many Voices Gone Silent”. The CD is co-produced with Tony Quarrington who provides back-up guitar work along with various band members. The songs have the virtue of simplicity and an obvious sincerity, …  Stanley Fefferman for The Live...
