With her new album Sweet Relief, singer-songwriter Lynn Jackson heads into roots territory, thanks to co-producer and long-time Fred Eaglesmith band member Dan Walsh (guitars/dobro), who enlisted the talents of Willie P. Bennett (harmonica/mandolin), Luke Stackhouse (upright bass), Richard Gulley (electric guitar), Steve Beach (piano/organ) and Andy Miller (drums). From mid-tempo bluesy numbers like Gone for Good, to upbeat rockers like Big Mistake to dusty road ballads like Running, the songs read more like stories, offering snapshots of characters and situations. The follow-up to her 2004 debut Night Songs, Sweet Relief is an assured mix of the intimate and the universal, mixing detailed storytelling with timeless melodies. 'Sweet Relief' has received substantial airplay and great reviews, including Exclaim magazine which called it 'an understated gem'.
