So this year’s Sappyfest lineup has been announced and I’m beginning my prep work and listening to new artist, new albums and refreshing my old favourites. Andre Ethier’s first on my list and I knew I was already off to a good start before I even heard a chord as his influences are listed as Bob Dylan and The Band. You can hear these influences in Ethier’s music but he stands apart and holds his own as a songwriter. This is my pick of the week and I can’t wait to see him at Sappy.
