2016 – Jake Chisholm
By Phillip Smith; Mar. 18, 2017
Toronto music artist Jake Chisholm does a fantastic job of encapsulating the purity and rawness of Seventies blues-rock with his latest album, No More Sorry. He brings a fistful of confidence to these ten tracks of originals with a rugged vocal styling and skillful guitar playing. Chisholm’s power-trio also includes drummer Sly Juhas and bassist Chris Banks.
Chisholm masterfully sets a dark and ominous state of impending doom with the psychedelic treat, “You Never Will”. His guitar chops stand out up front as he elegantly ushers in a relaxed Hendrix vibe on “Just Because You Want To”. This one is beautifully played. Guest Jameson Elliot doles out a cool driving bassline as Chisholm shares a trippy hardscrabble look at life on the “Merry-Go-Round”. I can’t help myself for falling for the infectious hook threaded through the title track, “No More Sorrow”. It grabs me every time I hear it. I like this one a lot.
There’s a sense of honesty woven into the crafted and thoughtful lyrics written by Chisholm. His serious approach to music makes No More Sorrow the splendid record it is.
