Corin Raymond is a Toronto based singer songwriter whose new record is atop the European Americana charts. I tracked down Corin on the road in an attempt to get clearance to write about his new record There Will Always Be A Small Time. He sent three songs and each was more personal and charming than the last. I can only post one song but you should click here to get the new record.
The title track is a romantic waltz more about music and community than getting the girl. The song is about Corin and his band’s attempt to make it by playing local lounges, selling d.i.y. CD’s from the bandstand (since the local record store is gone), and converting one fan at a time. It’s a song that couldn’t and wouldn’t be written in Nashville.
You can experience this song and the community it describes by checking out Corin Raymond and his band every Thursday at The Cameron House in Toronto. Tell `em you heard about the band and its music “through the grapevine” and that you brought a friend. He’ll know what you mean.
