Liam, Elroy, EJ, CeeCee and Jimmy

Went to Liam's show last night at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto and am still on a high after enjoying almost 90 minutes of a kick-***, pure adrenaline, spiritual and fun performance.

This is what rock & roll looks like in 2014. Liam blends a variety of influences and atmospheres like very few artists are able to do. Having Elroy on drums, EJ on Vocals (+ about 6 different instruments), the beautiful CeeCee on Keyboards (+ backing vocals) and the powerhouse player known as Jimmy on bass, exponentially raised the quality of Liam's music to a whole new level. Liam on guitar is becoming a force to reckon with. No longer is he just an experimental mad-scientist making wonders with his loop pedal, he is now an accomplished player, capable of some very fancy fret-work. The cost of getting a night's full of Liam at his best on guitar and vocals, was no drumming from Liam a la' animal (from the Muppets). However thanks to Elroy's steady beat and effortless playing, no one even noticed the absence of a 2nd drumkit on stage.

Liam deserves all the positive reviews and critical acclaim he can and will get while on tour. He is an immensely talented artist/musician/songwriter/guitarist in his own right. He is original, authentic and unapologetic about his shiny-sparkly "Torero" jacket... not bolero as some may think.

Liam, you are an inspiration!

youll never see the end of the road while your travelling with me...

Thanks for the review, there seems to be very little Liam traffic on the board. Glad it was a great show; I must say I'm not getting into the new disc like I did the previous ones. I guess I lean more to the sublime pop of Cold Feet and the like. The new songs just aren't very memorable to me. Would still love to see him live, though.
