Song of the Day, November 12: White Lies by Boo Hewerdine

BooONWhiteMaster craftsman Boo Hewerdine is a busy man. The singer, songwriter and guitarist collaborates with a dizzying array of other musicians, performs live regularly, and records solo as well as with a number of one-off and long-term bands. He frequently releases EPs as he comes up with sets of songs that work together well. In 2005, he turned out Ontario, a charming set of stories. The highlight is White Lies, featuring a stunning vocal and surging folk-pop backdrop. A tale of willing self-deception, it’s a smart construction and a fine moment in an impressive catalog.

Enjoy this great song today.
