Doug Paisley


Anyone who got a whiff of Big Pink on this Toronto singer-songwriter’s 2008 debut will appreciate the buttery Garth Hudson Hammond chords that float like nimbus throughout Paisley’s languidly gorgeous new Constant Companion. Don’t know if the Bonnie Prince Billy cohort will have Hudson in tow during his trio of local shows this week, but the way Paisley splits the difference between Michael Hurley and James Taylor is reason enough to give him a look-see. With D Charles Speer.
