Listen: North Country Gentlemen

The members of North Country Gentlemen may proclaim that they are “Canada’s most un-ambitious-est band,” but don’t let their self-deprecation catch you off guard when it comes to the scope of their musical talent.  Formerly billed as Cowboys & Indians,  the Americana act comprised of  Daniel Huscroft, Ryan McAllister, Barnaby McRae,  and JJ Shiplett can hit you with the force of a runaway freight car.

“Ghost Train,” the addictive first single from their self-titled album slated for release on March 11, 2014, rattles and hums down the tracks from the foot-stomping opening notes through the crescendo of the quartet’s ethereal harmonies. The gospel-laced warning cautions against succumbing to temptations destined to lead men down an inescapable path, setting up a battle between sin and salvation that sounds heavenly.

North Country Gentlemen can be ordered via the group’s Bandcamp page (digital and physical copies), Amazon or  iTunes.
