Le Peuple Breton
I had already mentioned him on the occasion of his first CD release. The Mysteries of Life is Tony O'Leary's third album. Tony is a Newfoundland musician from the east coast of Canada. In fact, the title of the album is itself directly inspired by a range of mountains of the island.
Tony O'Leary is very attached to his island and the preservation of nature: his new album is dedicated "to all friends who respect nature".
There are fourteen tracks on the album, most of the compositions are Tony's plus four or five traditional such as the Irish standard The Lark in the Morning or Drunken Sailor Hornpipe. All songs written by Tony tell a story, most of the time linked to nature, his own true passion. Traditional ballads, blues, or even forays to rock pepper the album on which Tony is demonstrating his talent as accordionist, singer, and guitarist.
He called for the gotha of Newfoundland musicians to aid him: They came to lend support.
It is said sometimes that music reveals the heart and soul of the musicians who understand it; these are particularly true assertions in this case.
