• Image of Now More Than Ever (extended CD)

Try to imagine the perfect album. A lush gorgeous record that is small and still. Full of unassuming first-person monologues. Acoustic without being folksy, poppy without being pandering, and quirky without being annoying. JIM GUTHRIE has created a masterful soundtrack of peace and tranquility, a crowning achievement of an earthly troubadour.

JIM GUTHRIE has left an indelible mark on the Canadian music scene, from his early days as a home-rock DJ in Guelph, to his searing lead guitar in ROYAL CITY, ISLANDS, and HUMAN HIGHWAY. But his solo career is outstanding; every musician I know is indebted to him, especially me.. Working on Now More Than Ever with Jim, the band, and Andy Magoffin, none of us really understood the scope of it until it was released to great acclaim in Canada and beyond. Jim's songs are as cryptic as a crossword and as personal as a foot massage. This record changed our lives, may it now change yours.
