Toronto Moon Magazine reviews Roots and Rain

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)

I found moving as a single released last year, as are other social justiced- themed tunes….  WIth an all-star band once again backing him on RAR (Tony Quarrington, Kevin Zarnett Shelley Coopersmith, Denis Keldie, Chris Robinson et all), and professional production, the new album sets a new bar for his music.

Wed. Jan 13 he releases the disc (with some of those performers joining him and special guest Jon Brooks opening at 8:30) at Hugh’s Room.  Tix are just $14 in advance !.”
