Hazelton – Mighty Skeena River

A lovely track by Hazelton, sprung from that bustling fountain of youth — Momma Jack Recordings, steadily releasing a significant body of work right in my own backyard.

A bubbling brook of voices buoys a call to that long river.  Hazelton is a small place, a destination along the Skeena for prospectors: a stopping place for a migrating population. But there is an assured quality to the song that implies settlement; the song does not seek calm, it is imbued with it. There is a great confidence in the loose and full harmonies, the mess of vocals that accompanies our singer, sweeps you up in their current. I don’t think that you can be lonely when you are listening to this song.
