Howe Gelb makes 'Sno Angels' in Ottawa

Published: 2006-03-03
Howe Gelb is known for being the man behind the band Giant Sand and recording music with a typically American southwestern feel, which is appropriate seeing as he's from the sunny desert of Tucson Arizona.

But for his newest solo record 'Sno Angel Like You Gelb traded in his rock style for a more gospel sound and recorded in the blustery Ottawa winter.

According to Chartattack, "The origins of the project go back to 2003 when Gelb was invited to play at a church with local singer/songwriter Jim Bryson as part of the Ottawa Bluesfest. Gospel choirs performed in between sets and Gelb was inspired to create music that captured that sound but didn't involve religious lyrics."

The album, which will be out March 21, features the voices of the Voices of Praise gospel choir who fit themselves into Gelb's already recorded tunes.

Here are the tunes from 'Sno Angel Like You:

"Get To Leave"
"Paradise Here Abouts"
"But I Did Not"
"Hey Man"
"The Farm"
"That's How Things Get Done"
"Love Knows (No Borders)"
"The Voice Within"
"Nail In The Sky"
"Howlin' A Gale"
"Robes Of Bible Black"
"Worried Spirits"
"Neon Filler"
"Chore Of Enchantment"
