Chris Naish ‘Light a Cigarette’ EP Review
By C.W. Ross
The latest release from Canadian ‘garage folk’ artist Chris Naish is entitled ‘Light a Cigarette.’
The 6-track EP is filled with personal material from Naish that captures the ups & down parts of his life including a spiritual aspect that also comes through in his music.
Things get started with the Neil Young sounding acoustic guitar and harmonica filled, folk rock track, “Be the Road.”
Other highlight tracks include, “Never Stop,” that offers up almost rapping vocals on it. The title track, “Light a Cigarette” is a nice story telling styled folk song. “See New York,” offers up sharp crisp notes and passion filled vocals.
Review Takeaway: It’s been probably 4-5 years now since I first heard Naish’s music. Over those years I’ve reviewed his music for different music sites that I’ve run and have grown to appreciate his music that offers up what’s good about Indie music. His music is driven by personal goals and talent and not by greed or the search for a fast buck.
