I was fortunate enough to snap up some excellent seats for Nickelback's Feed the Machine tour when it arrived in Toronto this summer. I am not prepared to debate the merits of Nickelback with anyone until they actually attend one of their shows. Opening for the concert (which also included a solid set from Daughtry) was my "find" for 2017, Shaman's Harvest.
I am almost embarrassed that it took me so long to "find" this band, and their incredible country-heavy rock laced sound. This band from Jefferson City, Missouri, has been releasing albums since 1999. Fortunately, even though I was late to the party, I have made every effort to educate myself on their back catalogue. They are straight forward no-holds barred rock, and Nathan Hunt's voice gives the band a unique and powerful sound. This is the type of music that is missing off radio for the last five years. There is no auto-tuning here :)
To give you an idea of what Shaman's Harvest brings to a concert, I have selected my favourite track off of their 2014 album "Smokin' Hearts & Broken Guns". "Dangerous" does have a few swear words in it (so you are forewarned), but like all good rock songs, you'll be banging your head and playing air guitar by the time the song is over ;)
An exploration of the music that holds meaning in my life.
