Nathan Wiley, Bottom Dollar

P.E.I. native Nathan Wiley’s first album, Bottom Dollar, is a refreshing blend of folk and roots experimentation. The title track starts the CD off with a smooth southwestern feel, which quickly becomes a hard Maritime-influenced brand of music in “Black Bones.” Wiley then shows his versatility in “Straight and Sober,” which has definite shades of honky-tonk. From soulful to mournful, the songs on this album are distinct, rich expressions of Wiley’s unique style that combines musical talent with passionate storytelling. If you’re looking to sample different styles of folk music, or just have the urge for something Canadian, Bottom Dollar won’t disappoint.
