John Southworth is one of Canada’s most distinctive and
iconoclastic music artists, respected for forging ahead with his
own unique brand of music-making, while garnering high praise for
his inimitable contribution – from both critics and contemporaries
alike. Human Cry is John's latest release through Barnyard Records.
This studio recording features Andrew Downing on bass, Justin Haynes on guitar, and Jean Martin on drums. Human Cry's supremely crafted, elegiac songs offer rare and intimate illuminations, artfully performed with seasoned precision and grace.
“Wonderful, sylvan, sprightly, uber-bolangaire, peculiar and smart.”
– Guy Maddin, Canadian Film Maker
“John Southworth always sounds just like John Southworth, no matter how many different musical styles he's explored over the years.”
- Stewart Mason, Amplifier Magazine
