Who: Cory Woodward from Edmonton via Vancouver.
What: The debut album (Princess Of The Skies) from this Edmonton-bred singer/songwriter. Expect moments of Springsteen-like rasp followed by unbridled, soulful bellows in the vein of Joe Cocker. He plays Toronto on thursday (Aug. 7th) at the Local, more Canadian tourdates on his myspace.
Song: Slipping Away. Reminds me of the hookiness of Small Sins, really love the addition of the choir near the end.
