Champ

by Kim Barlow

A collection of earthy, wry allegories about love, death and horses. There is a playful defiance in these songs; a reckoning of lost battles and a Yukon-honed resilience.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kim Barlow is an international touring and recording artist, based in the Yukon. Her first three recordings, Humminah, Gingerbread and Luckyburden were released on the Caribou Records label.

This year, with the help and support of Caribou Records, Kim is releasing a new CD with Jericho Beach Music, based in Vancouver, and the coming year promises to bring her music to an even wider audience.

Kim Barlow’s new recording, Champ, is a collection of earthy, wry allegories about love, death and horses. There is a playful defiance in these songs; a reckoning of lost battles and a Yukon-honed resilience punctuated by moments of unhindered joy.

Champ is spare and humble, balanced by warm harmonies and the low, dark folk-pop brew of Barlow on banjo and guitar, along with collaborator and co-producer Jordy Walker. A spontaneous and intimate energy is revealed in these recordings from the live, woody room at Old Crow Recording studio, in spite of, or maybe because of, the record-breaking cold snap during which the music was made.

Simple Yet Charming
I really enjoy listening to this CD. A couple of tracks could have been left out but overall it is very good. I particularly like "Great White Nothing" and "But He Don't".

David and Joyce Ratz

Wonderful lyrics and music. Relaxing and true to life.
We spent the afternoon listening to Champ and each time enjoyed it more. We knew that the sound would be wonderful as we could see how perfectly you and Jordy fit together when you were here at the Red Top. Thanks for continuing with your writing and singing Kim.

if Great white nothing is an indecation of the direction taken on this album, ide say that kim has struck yet another cord.

Don Lemare

More subdued that the last three, but it grows on you!
I didn't immediately take to this CD when I first heard it, like I did the last three. The only song that really grabbed me was "The Great White Nothing". Now that I've heard it about 5 times, it has grown on me as only Kim Barlow can. Her lyrics and descriptions of life in the Yukon and her friends really grab you. If you are new to her music, pick up Humminah, Gingerbread or Lucky Burden first and then this one.

Loved it! Ok, so I wish I could write songs about these wonderful things that happen in our everyday lives, but I don't. But Kim Barlow just took those songs right out of my heart and soul, and then sings those songs I wish I had written with just the right accompaniaments and style! I wish she was my neighbor across the street instead of across the border, but that won't stop us from following her performances. My new favorite. Thank you, Kim.

charming CD, with two or three great songs - love the nature connection
Great White Nothing is really a superb song. This what I like in Kim's CD's: a good banjo line, and a heartfelt connection to the land and the people. Like most CD's, there are two or three inspired songs, and the rest is filler. I have all of Kim's CD's, and have managed to make a great mixed CD using the "best of".
