Time Travel, Lennie Gallant’s latest album, includes 13 new songs that showcase a fresh, new approach to Lennie’s music.
The album won a 2020 Canadian Folk Music Award for Producer of the Year, Daniel Ledwell.
Time Travel, the long awaited album by celebrated Canadian songwriter, Lennie Gallant, takes us on a trip that delves into journeys of the heart, our time on the planet, place in the universe, ancient legends, road stories and an oddly confused ghost. The album covers a lot of ground and is an explorative and deeply evocative album that will be sure to move the listener on many levels. Gallant’s rich vocals are brought to the fore on this recording and the often full orchestral arrangements provide the ideal setting for them to shine.
Gallant’s album seems to be in the right place at the right time. Songs like ‘Nothing Makes Sense,’ a tongue in cheek view of our present state of global affairs, ‘Sequoia’, a heartfelt ode to a tall elder of our fragile ecosystem, ‘We Want Contact’, our search for others like us out there, and ‘There’s a Storm Coming’, an oft quoted timely phrase. It seems many of the songs on the album were ripped from the day’s headlines while taking a lyrical sideways glance at where we are headed spiritually and emotionally in our quest to cope in rather dubious times.
The album, produced by Daniel Ledwell, features guest appearances by Mary Jane Lamond, Rose Cousins, Jenn Grant, The Fretless, and The Atlantic String Machine, among others. The new songs have been garnering significant airplay and stellar reviews. The album was recently named one of the Top Ten Folk Albums of the Year alongside Richard Thompson, John Prine and Joan Baez by a panel of Canadian music industry professionals.
Gallant truly is a master tunesmith. His lyrics and the melody lines that flow through them are beautifully interwoven and go straight for the heart almost every time. The Guardian
