Black Top Road

by Jeff Kanzler

"Kanzler writes beautifully understated tunes that straddle almost every genre of American roots music. His vocals compliment the songs beautifully, sounding like a cross between a more grizzled Ryan Adams and Johnny Hickman." Dan Wilkinson - AmericanaUK

Album Notes
"Black Top Road" is an essential album...a classic from the Alaskan wilderness..9 out of 10 stars!!" Dan Wilkinson - AmericanaUK


"Brilliant!" John Richards, John in the Morning, KEXP FM Seattle


"This Seattle-born, Alaska-based singer-songwriter debuts with a jaw-dropping set of beautifully crafted country-folk. Kanzler has a fine, expressive voice with a touch of gravel and his melodies are often sublime, reminiscent at times of early Dylan. The warm, rich production is also flat-out gorgeous, with trumpets, mandolin, dobro, pedal steel and harmonica adding lots of rootsy color to a variety of stunning, fully-realized songs. Incredibly, Kanzler has been living in the woods of the Alaskan interior for the past few years in a cabin with no running water and recorded this album up there with locals – it’s just mind-blowing, considering how great it sounds."

Don Yates - Music Director, KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle

“This CD is SO good... a real pleasure...Great songs, catching melodies, perfect vocals and subtle arrangements. It made my day!” Mike Penard - RadioISA (France)

"I get a load of CDs through every day but these songs, singing, playing and production really stand out."

Tom Fahey – AmericanaOK Leith FM

Bellisimas melodias, una voz extraordinaria y una banda perfecta

Bryn Manley

Black Top Road
One of the very best CD's I've purchased this year. Great voice and incredible lyrics. creates magical inages

gerry mccaffrey

A little patchy but still hard to believe that this is an independent production; good value album. No hesitiations in giving in 3*, could so easily be 4*
