Faith Healer is yet another present from the music gods themselves, to re-assure us that pop excellence is still with us in 2017.
Faith Healer is essentially Edmonton’s Jessica Jalbert’s initial solo project which has morphed into a band, with singer-guitarist Jalbert joined by drummer/multi-instrumentalist Renny Wilson.
If you can imagine a lost classic 60s/70s pop and rock album that somehow manages to mine classic rock ‘n’ roll, soul, psychedelia & chamber pop into a heady melange, well you have Try 😉!
Take the first three songs where the astute listener will hear references to early Todd Rundgren, mid-60s Beach Boys, The Nice and Badfinger crammed into highly innovative & fresh pop songs that never sound derivative.
Try 😉 is one for the ages, where pop obsessives will return to its brilliance again and again to find hidden treasures. Certainly essential listening for the PoP faithful!
… still there’s more …
