L J Folk is coming off a great year, where the duet THE LOOK OF LOVE, featuring EMILIE CLAIRE BARLOW has garnered international attention and acclaim.

His voice has been described as "soaring," "pure" and "sheer perfection!" The recording has been referred to as "The finest vocal jazz recording of the year," (Wholenote Magazine) and "Highly recommended," (Cadence Magazine)

His audiences have been thrilling to the sounds of the 60's, 70's and beyond in L J's sensitive, yet clever jazz arrangements. As well, L J brings a catalog of original work that spans decades.

His latest release, NEAR ME includes originals, covers, and a fantastic duet with Canada's jazz vocalist jewel, the incomparable Emilie-Claire Barlow.

Special Thanks to the wonderful players on the sessions; Jake, for grounding everything, and making yourself available. Dan for the extra time spent locating a piano, and your wonderful playing, of course. All the tipsters, especially Sue Shepherd, Kathy Derksen, Ray Folk, and Linda Dann.
To the beautiful girls in my life, Adreana, Rachel, and Sarah.

In this, the age of pod-posture, some feel (with some justification), that today’s music is a fast food, to be consumed in haste, and forgotten just as quickly. If that’s the case, what a shame, cuz this one’s been in the oven for a while. Hope you can afford the time to savor it.
Go on now, put that phone away.

“Parking for Meatballs.” Finally, a space for me.
