Hourglass – Murray McLauchlan’s Timely New Album

Murray McLauchlan has one heck of a resume. The renowned singer/songwriter is an 11-time Juno Award winner and an Order of Canada recipient who has authored a bestselling autobiography, hosted CBC Radio’s Swinging On A Star, and starred in Floating Over Canada, a recurring CBC/PBS TV special which followed Murray, a licensed bush pilot, across the country in his Cessna 185 floatplane. On his latest album Hourglass, he tackles some weighty subjects which he had time to reflect upon over the past year during anxious COVID times of mask-wearing, social distancing and seemingly endless lockdowns. Yet even though there’s a song on the record called Pandemic Blues, there is a streak of optimism below the dark waves and it’s certainly comforting to hear the strain of his familiar voice which has remained remarkably unchanged over the years.
