Past song of the week / May 2023

Del Barber

From the album Almanac

Featured track, available from May 18 to May 25

Del Barber has been putting plenty of miles on the road, connecting with audiences and touring in support of his latest release. The JUNO-nominated roots singer/songwriter (and farmer!) launched his latest studio album, Almanac, via Acronym Records at the end of April, wrapping up a cross-Canada tour and heading into the US for dates in Montana, Colorado, and Texas this month. He's been earning nods from international tastemakers like PopMatters, No Depression, and The Indiependent, and a four-star review from the local daily. There are more tire marks on the horizon, including a stop at the Calgary Folk Festival in late July. We've got his single "Jared" for you as this week's feature. Press play, check out Almanac, and keep your ears open for more from Del Barber!
