Holy Moses! Another premiere!
On June 7th, Secret City (Patrick Watson, Basia Bulat) will release High Twilight, the sparkling debut from Montreal-born singer-songwriter Daniel Isaiah. With poignant lyrics and a deft handling of a century of popular music styles High Twilight would be considered an ambitious record for an established artist; coming from a relative unknown, it verges on breathtaking. This is a record that literally demands repeat listening, and savvy music lovers will detect traces of fellow Canadians Leonard Cohen, Luke Doucet and Robbie Robertson, as well as that Dylan fellow from up in Hibbing. And while mainstream popularity may elude Isaiah for now, I feel like he’s just too talented to be kept a secret for long.
With that, MOKB is proud to cut the ribbon on the record’s title track.
