Time is Tall

by Jon McLurg

The songs on Time Is Tall exude a timeless feel. Neither uber-contemporary nor old-fashioned, the lyrics, the music, the production, the instrumentation all complement each other exquisitely to allow the songwriting to take centre stage. Each track has several inspiring lyrics that the listener can take with them when the song is over.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jon McLurg is a folk singer from Kingston, Ontario, who is currently supporting his third solo
album 'Time Is Tall'. This remarkable album showcases his stunning songwriting abilities, and
will be available on iTunes and in record stores around Kingston on September 21, 2010.
His lyrics display a rare and mature wisdom for a man of only 26. It‟s not often one can find an
artist so deeply immersed in folk‟s roots. As with his previous two records, 'Time Is Tall' is a
seamless mixture of Appalachian folk, bluegrass, Americana, country, Delta blues, and Celtic
influences.
Jon‟s influences are also very evident; Mississippi John Hurt, Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie,
Pete Seeger, John Prine, Leonard Cohen, and Bob Dylan. To pick out one in any given song is
a challenge, which is a testament to Jon‟s skilful songwriting abilities.
It‟s not just in the writing with Jon McLurg. His voice is delicate, yet it never wavers. He sings
each word like it‟s the most important lyric in the song. He‟s also a master fingerpicker capable
of playing a variety of styles, which helps make his live solo performances as strong as the ones
with his full backing band.
The songs on Time Is Tall exude a timeless feel. Neither uber-contemporary nor old-fashioned,
the lyrics, the music, the production, the instrumentation all complement each other exquisitely
to allow the songwriting to take centre stage. Each track has several inspiring lyrics that the
listener can take with them when the song is over.
Jon has opened for Fred Eaglesmith, is a regular at the New Jersey Folk Festival, and he won
the lyric contest in the July/August 2010 edition of American Songwriter Magazine for “Someone
Thinks Of You” off his second album, 2008‟s The Auctioneer.
