Record Dept. Reviews
John Wort Hannam spent years teaching English in one of Canada’s largest native reserves when he discovered the Loudon Wainwright III record that inspired him to learn guitar and take up music as a profession. Queen’s Hotel is Hannam’s fourth full-length with 11 tracks of authentic Canadian folk/roots music and features the interplay between Hannam’s warm emotive vocals and clean, distinctive guitar. Queen’s Hotel is an instantly enjoyable collection of narrative songs that are thoughtful, sweeping and genuine – it is definitely worth checking out.
