Mr Invitation Gets Outstanding Review from Exclaim

Now is the time when MacPherson needs to be considered amongst the best Canadian singer-songwriters on the scene today.

Go to Exclaim to see the full review. Or scroll down:

From the opening lines of “First Class,” this latest effort from MacPherson feels almost like a Tom Clancy thriller. The Winnipeg singer-songwriter has always been noted for injecting political intrigue into his music, but Mr. Invitation may be the first of his four albums to musically match the power of his pen. Although sonically sparse, MacPherson and his trio zero in on the core of each track, and extract meaning from each note. These are not songs that can be easily ignored, even when MacPherson dials down the drama, as on “Travelling Style.” The end result is an artist in full command of his creative faculties, and knowing it. It would be easy to compare Mr. Invitation to the best work of the Weakerthans or the Tragically Hip, but that would be doing MacPherson a disservice, since many moments on this album are better. Now is the time when MacPherson needs to be considered amongst the best Canadian singer-songwriters on the scene today. (Smallman)

Greg Macpherson Joins Smallman For His Next Release.

One of our personal favourites will be releasing his latest album with Smallman in 2010.

Ooooh. First big announcement of 2010. It’s not really a secret as we’ve been working on this album for the past 10 months already but it is now finally done and we’ve got a release date set. So we can officially announce that Greg Macpherson will be releasing his latest full length - Mr. Invitation - with Smallman on March 30, 2010. For those who don’t know Greg, he’s a fantastic singer/songwriter that falls somewhere between Steve Earle, Hayden, Billy Bragg and The Weakerthans.

The new album contains 10 new tracks goes across the spectrum musically and lyrically. We’ll have some music to listen to shortly, as well as some upcoming tourdates (including a hometown CD release show in April) and some info on pre-orders. For now, the tracklisting will hopefully suffice:
1. First Class
2. Outside Edge
3. Smoke Ring
4. Mr. Invitation
5. Travelling Style
6. Backflow
7. Broken Dreams
8. Big Skies
9. West End
