The Same Light
Well crafted soulful acoustic and electric Folk/Roots/Jazz/Blues with a sonic spectrum shining through from Jeff Beck through Pete Seeger.'
On his new CD, “The Same Light”, the Juno Award-winner unveils sensitive, finely-crafted songs showcasing his writing skills, soul-drenched blues sure to satisfy his longest-standing fans, and three instrumental pieces that transcend limiting tags like “jazz” or “folk” or “roots”. It closes with a powerful treatment of Pete Seeger’s “To My Old Brown Earth”, blending many of the CD’s musical flavors into a heartfelt statement of our shared responsibility toward the “fragile, beautiful planet” we occupy together.
Throughout the CD he displays the virtuosity as a guitarist and vocalist that have won him growing critical acclaim and admiration over the past 20 years, whether as a solo blues performer, a member of the award-winning group Tri-Continental, or a collaborator with international recording artist Mae Moore.
“The Same Light”, will be appreciated by people who are simply fans of real music, performed with Lester’s trademark blend of artistry, warmth, and joy.
