Luckily for me, on their Myspace page you can download a free live recording of one of their shows, seriously awesome. What I love most about that is the dorky and hilarious comments that both members, Joy Williams and John Paul White make throughout the show. It is very much worth the (free) download, you won't be sorry (Note - Barton Hollow is available there too!). I think another winning factor, at least from my nerdy Canadian literature background, they covered Leonard Cohen's song, Dance Me To the End of Love. Poor Leonard, though a great Canadian poet you may be, these two sing your song so much more beautifully (Compare). Fantastic.
This first video is of one of their breakout songs, played on Grey's Anatomy (so I heard, since I don't actually watch that show) entitled Poison & Wine. It is so beautiful and sad and haunting. Have a listen!
This second video features the title song on their debut album, Barton Hollow. By far my favourite song, it has been on pretty much constant repeat on my ipod. I literally can't stop listening to this song.
I am very much hoping to be able to get myself to Toronto in April and finagle some tickets in order that I might actually be able to attend their only Canadian tour date thus far, fingers crossed.
