Andrew Phelan is an Australian who relocated to Canada (received a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination) and last week he released his new six song EP Everything Rattles When I Breathe. This one from it, ‘That’s How’ is a catchy and rousing folk dispatch about the perils of booze. He’s got a fine line in lyrical storytelling and fills his music with energy, spirit and verve.
“I wrote these to give to people, they were written during touring moments, and travelling home to Australia, and finding my feet in Canada. They were recorded in a small room blocks from the crawl space I lived in when I first moved to Vancouver, with two close friends in a way that was most playable to a room of people.”
