OK, the dolls are a little creepy, but these guys have a really good sound going here.

Aside from having one of the best ready-made musician names I’ve ever heard, Lucky has some serious chops both as a songwriter and as a player. He has a very easy-flowing sound, fairly dripping with Canadian understatement and existing in a world forever cabin-bound amid the towering landscape of Saskatchewan.

He sounds a little like a Saskatchewanian (sp?) version of Jose Gonzales; voice faint, a little squeeky and whispering as though these song were never meant to leave the fire side. I really like what this fella’s up to and I hope he can make it to the States to play soon.

Here are some samples:
