MUSIC REVIEW OF THE DAY: POOR NAMELESS BOY - BRAVERY

Beats me how a Saskatchewan boy knows how to write about the Atlantic Ocean, but Joel Henderson (aka Poor Nameless Boy) nails it on the song of that title, plus the cut Dream Boat, where he's sailing with a few too many dreams to take on another, perhaps a lover, we're not told. Anyway, sailing imagery is just one of his strengths, on his second, very strong collection.


Henderson's an acoustic storyteller, with that magic touch, the ability to paint a word picture that immediately stands out. In Saturn, we meet the woman with "Cherubim angels tattooed on her arms/Guarding the garden with flaming swords." In Fairy Tale, we find out he's "crossed too many bridges with trolls underneath." In short, the kind of lines that make you look up from Facebook and realize something's going in these songs.


There's some evocative violin gliding through several of the songs, and a couple of times, a full band comes along to lively up the pace through these 10 cuts. Mostly though, we're hear to listen to his fine voice, positive demeanor, and inspiring lyrics.

NEW ALBUM OFFICIALLY BEGUN

June 5, 2015

Excited to officially announce the beginning of recording a new Poor Nameless Boy record. Had a great couple nights of drum tracking with Kyle Halvorson. 

Chose to record with Brad Prosko in B-rad studios and he's already shown moments where he's more excited about this record than I am! That's always a great sign. 

Want to thank Creative Sask for their support for this record and I'll be bringing more updates as we go. We worked with Creative Saskatchewan quite diligently to present an album a...

The Reason Why I Starting Writing Music

July 22, 2014

Lately I've had some people close to me ask me questions along the lines of, “When are you going to make music for God?” or “It's great what you do, but it would be even better if you were a Christian artist.”

When I started writing music, it became a passion of mine to continue to become better as a songwriter. Much like poetry, film, television, I realized that with an audience there comes a sense of standing behind what you write. The songs become a reflection of who you a...
