When Cam Penner and Jon Wood toured over here in 2015, the reviews were as glowing as the performances and followed them wherever they went. Maverick writer Paul Kerr said they were “mesmerising,” while (writing at AmericanaUK), Mike Ritchie said: “Masterful – an utterly compelling duo – brilliant!”

They were flown in from their base in Canada for their sold-out headline show at Celtic Connections Festival after winning major TV exposure when tracks from the sensational To Build A Fire album were chosen as the backdrop to the BBC 2 TV drama based on Iain Banks’ Stonemouth novel.

The latest release – Sex & Politics – confirmed them as a creative tour de force.

“Simply superb – an album that’ll be making more than a few end-of-year “best of” lists,” said AmericananUK, while Acoustic magazine called it “totally glorious” and added: “it’s maybe as fine as music’s likely to get in 2016.” R2 magazine called it “a work of outstanding genius.”

Penner has that rare quality – a well-grounded human spirit. In another life he might have been a Shaman. With constant playing companion Jon Wood (a highly respected producer in Canada) by his side, percussive elements and layered guitar techniques have added rich texture. Those Shamans also dance around – and beat the drum – sometimes.

“Quite brilliant” – No Depression

“Stunning” – The Daily Express
