“The responsibility of the songwriter putting history in context,” said The Wooden Sky’s Gavin Gardener when we recently caught up with him in an interview. And that’s just what the Toronto band have achieved on this, their third album, Every Child A Daughter, Every Moon A Sun, as they address the subjects of family life, back yard parties, the drawbacks of touring and full on, righteous love songs. Touching on each element of the band’s life and style, The Wooden Sky have created a tender and accomplished chronicle of their life together, combining joy, sadness, longing and moments of pure musical sublimity.
