Kev Corbett is one of the best of eastern Canada’s bumper crop of fine young songwriters. He likes one fan’s description: Like Leonard Cohen, but with a sense of humour. His lyrics are warm, earnest and hopeful. A serious guitar picker, you can tell he paid his dues playing for years as a pro sideguy. His new record Son of a Rudderless Boat recently hit #3 on the NCRA Folk/Roots chart, and will tour the nation from coast to coast this spring, BY TRAIN! For more info check out kevcorbett.com
