"Sometimes music grabs you right away. You know it's something special; that electric jolt to the pleasure center. It happens to me but it's not an everyday thing. It's the reason I keep going to shows and searching out new recordings. That moment when you hear something that sounds familiar because it's honouring tradition but is absolutely original. "Jehan Khoorshed's music hit me like this. Within seconds I knew I would love the album. By the end of the second song I knew it be one of my favourites for the year. "Is it Country? Is it Pop? Yes to both, but it also swings and harmonizes. The band is rollicking but the real treat is the songwriting: Jehan's songs are a heady mix of longing, lust, love, loss but always with a wry humour. You can't listen to these songs without smiling. "Do yourself a favour and listen to "Jehan Khoorshed". Or better yet see him live. You will be rewarded with a musical experience to cherish (however should he happen to pass out on your lawn and you need someone to drive him home... I don't know him)." Dick Altavista "Both Kinds of Music" CKCU 93.1fm in Ottawa.
