Burnside Album Details
Jansen, Shuyler, Today's Remains
Culled from several lifetimes of stories and songs and inspired by the words and music of Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Billy Joe Shaver, Shuyler Jansen has delivered this decade's country folk classic. Opening with the slightly epic and grandiose "Pegasus", Shuyler braids a tale of infidelity, addiction, death and broken trust, re-occurring themes that seem to encompass the ten songs on Today's Remains. Produced by Juno award winner Steve Dawson (Kelly Joe Phelps, Jim Byrnes, Jenny Whiteley), and recorded at the Factory (Vancouver BC), Today's Remains is an auspicious follow-up to Shuyler's country- electro-folk Hobotron (2004) and Old Reliable's rocker The Burning Truth (2005).
