Lee Harvey Osmond – Beautiful Scars (2015)

Hamilton, ON blues-rock mainstay Tom Wilson has captivated Canadian music fans with his work in Junkhouse and Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, though at the moment, he’s switched his focus back to his Lee Harvey Osmond project.Produced by Michael Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) at his Toronto studio, the new record largely places emphasis on Wilson’s singing. A press release describes his voice as “a warm hand to the forehead, an arm on the arm of the stricken, a comforting growl at the heart of a screaming world.” Despite the prominence of Wilson’s baritone croons, there’s also noteworthy backing instrumentation that comes in the form of “swooning horns” and “guitars that bob and weave.” Wilson leads the listener on a sonic journey.
