Ben Corno is a songwriter of the truest order. He writes the kinds of song that “walk on their own,” to quote the great Bob Dylan. Each recording is a little treasure of passion and character, free of any contrivance. Less With More follows the mask melting Nepal with a continuing effect, an excellent sequel to Corno’s moralizing cants that arrive in a spirit similar to Emerson or Thoreau. Be sure to see Corno live to experience the full magic of his songs this Wednesday at Wunderbar for his Edmonton release. He’s accompanied by the folk songs of Liam Trimble, Jessica Jalbert, and Doug Hoyer. You really can’t lose. Details here.
