If you love ballads in the style of James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg or Gordon Lightfoot, then you will surely like the music of Derek Swain, Canadian singer / songwriter, who has just recently released the new album entitled “Better Days” (AmeriCanada Records). It is an acoustic album, only voice and guitar, meandering through 11 catchy, well structured captivating tracks. Derek is a generous musician, good as a storyteller thanks also to the intelligent and never dull lyrics. “Better Days” is a pleasant album, a mix of country, folk and Americana that grows the more you listen to it. Recommended for those who love real music. Classy music of course. Info / copies at derekswainmusic.com (Gianluca Sitta)


For who you are

From where I stand

Missing you

Better days

Along with the changes

The sweetest memory of all


Never far behind

Love will find a way


Song of spring
