EP: Dawson Forsey – Howdy Stranger

Here is info about this Canadian indie folk/ alt-country artist:

“Dawson Forsey is a singer-songwriter from Newfoundland, now based in Vancouver, Canada. Blending dad rock and lo-fi country, he draws inspiration from Newfoundland’s rich musical history, crafting introspective tunes that explore heartache, insecurity, and fear. With influences ranging from Bruce Springsteen to John Prine, Dawson’s warm and moody crooning, accompanied by his jaguar guitar, captivates audiences, inviting them into a world of dusty roads and endless pink skies. His aim is to experiment with the country genre and he can’t wait to share what new sounds come from it.”

I usually do not listen to country music as much, but sometimes I find gems like this one. I can hear the influences of older singer-songwriters like Bruce Springsteen and I am quite enjoying it. I discovered this album through the alt-country ballad Partner Song, but I enjoyed the rest of the EP as well, so I am sharing the full album so you can enjoy it. I have been really appreciative of submissions from Canada, especially Newfoundland, home of my favorite artist fog lake. Somehow I am feeling very nostalgic when listening to these songs and I am liking that feeling. The EP is definitely worth checking out from the start to the end.

You can find more music on Spotify or Bandcamp.
