2008 brings the release of John L. Fletcher's debut CD, Troubadouring, a remarkably constructed celebration of contemporary folk music, fusing elements of traditional, acoustic, folk-rock, country, protest and pop. Fans of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson and other powerful lyricists will appreciate the song crafting John L has brought to this project. As well, the songs showcase his addictive melodies and choruses, bringing to mind the music of Gordon Lightfoot, Sarah McLachlan and other accomplished composers. And one song - I Don't Want - evokes the up tempo harmonies of the Bare Naked Ladies. There are no harsh tones or finger-wagging moralisms in these songs - just easy to listen to storytelling delivered in John L's distinctive voice. John L is an innovative, unpretentious and reflective new artist with a unique perspective bringing a fresh style to the independent music scene.
