Taylor Caron This is the kind of album that feels like home - it is like a comfortable room full of some of your favourite people, a cold beer and the heat of sitting fireside.
It wraps you up with it's beautiful folk sway and lyrics that pull you up. Beautifully done!

Western Wind is the debut album from Nelson, BC's Born on a Wednesday. Recorded live off the floor in the Slocan valley, the album captures the intimate feel of a BOAW performance. It has all the layered vocals, punchy slide guitar, and rolling mando runs you'll come to expect from a BOAW release.

Ultimately, it represents where the band was at for two sweaty August days in the studio. No further here nor there, just being themselves, enjoying the moment and the music for what it is.
