Shuyler Jansen - Today’s Remains
From the first few verses of Today’s Remains it’s obvious that Shuyler Jansen is wearing his Sunday best. Recorded in Vancouver and produced by Juno award winner Steve Dawson, Today’s Remains is a cohesive collection of truth-filled songs. Opening with the slightly epic and grandiose “Pegasus”, Jansen braids a tale of infidelity, addiction, death and broken trust, recurring themes that seem to encompass the ten songs on Today’s Remains. Culled from several lifetimes of stories and songs and inspired by the words and music of Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Billy Joe Shaver, Jansen has delivered a country-folk classic.
