Basia Bulat - Good Advice
Trading in her auto-harp and acoustic guitar for an assortment of colorful keyboards, Bulat’s self-professed break-up album sounds more like a declaration of independence than an admission of defeat. Dynamic, resilient and unsparing in clear-eyed resolve, the Jim James produced, “Advice,” sheds regrets and pledges respect to forge an iron-clad happiness with forward-looking lyrics, decisive insights and muscular arrangements supporting the Canadian song-thrush’s warm vibrant voice. Shining an inviting light on turbulent times, Bulat’s rousing counsel seeks the personal in the universal, connecting common problems to self-empowering solutions with commanding stanzas, steadily catchy melodies and rock-solid backing from a talented battalion of musical troops. An enchanting performer, Basia plays Madison’s High Noon Saloon March 8th along with fellow Canadian songwriter Tamara Lindeman’s The Weather Station.
