Sounds | Chris Canterbury - Sweet Maria (acoustic)


Hij wordt zo stilaan één van mijn fav country singers. Geen slidewerk op zijn Telecaster deze keer. Wel die prachtige stem en akoestische gitaar als ondersteuning. Sweet Maria is gedaan voor je het goed en wel beseft en doet zo verlangen naar véél meer.


Quaalude Lullabies verschijnt binnenkort via Rancho Deluxe Records

“When I sat down to write this project, I tried to present each topic as a straight-forward Saturday morning kitchen conversation. That’s how I approach songwriting and it’s worked for me for a long time” says Chris Canterbury, a Louisiana native singer-songwriter, now based in Nashville.


The project Canterbury is talking about is Quaalude Lullabies, a nine track collection of mostly sad songs that offers on-the-nose lyrical phrasing, subtlety loose production, and an honest insight into razor-edge topics like addiction, depression, and loneliness.


In what started as a thought experiment, Quaalude Lullabies was self-produced by Canterbury, his first opportunity to be on both sides of the control room window. “I wanted to woodshop a record together that felt like Nebraska,” says Canterbury. “I wanted it to be loose like a box of bedroom demo tapes, but cohesive enough to stand on its own. I feel like we ended up with a solid album.”
