It’s been two years since New Country Rehab grabbed the folk world’s attention with their impressive self-titled debut. Since then, the band have built a dedicated brood of fans, bringing their unique stew of traditional country, bluegrass, rock and jazz to audiences in Canada, the US, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, and the United Kingdom.
Featuring singer/fiddler John Showman, guitarist “Champagne” James Robertson, double bassist Ben Whiteley and drummer Roman Tome, NCR’s unique blend of instruments and playing approach have left critics with a tough task in describing the band’s sound.
Hailed as “the next big thing in Canadian music” (Tom Power- CBC) and “Canada’s answer to the Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons” (UNCUT), NCR have raised a raucous that shows no signs of slowing down on their sophomore effort, Ghost of Your Charms.
NCR have stepped up their sonic palette on Charms, and the result is the sound of a band that has gotten very comfortable in their skin. Working again with producer Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre, Ohbijou), Charms was recorded live off the floor at Casa Wroxton. Love, loss and tall tales of sordid characters inhabit the album’s eleven tracks, including reworkings of Hank Williams Sr.’s (“Too Many Parties”), and “Image of Me,” a Wayne Kemp country classic that Conway Twitty took to #1 in 1961.
