Eleanor McCain Explores the True North

True North: The Canadian Songbook is a new double-album project from Eleanor McCain of Toronto. As the title suggests, she covers classic Canadian songs, all presented in an easy listening style. She teamed up not with one but many different symphony orchestras across the country. You will find songs by Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell which should satisfy the boomers and Bryan Adams and Roch Voisine to hit the spot for Gen-Xers. She tackles Gordon Lightfoot’s “If You Could Read My Mind” and Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel”. Shall we go on? This is a gem for any lover of Canadian music, certainly for those who appreciate the songwriting that shines through more clearly in this softer presentation.  iTunes
