Review: "A Rainy Week in Paradise" - Elessar Thiessen

Are you a fan of artists like John Mayer and Jason Mraz? If so, stop everything you're doing right now and listen to Elessar Thiessen's new album, "A Rainy Week in Paradise". This piece of music has a real earthy feel, as it combines both a modern pop rock sound with guitar licks typically found in blues songs. Thiessen's music is truly something that doesn't just appeal to musicians, but the common fan as well.

One of the main reasons why "A Rainy Week in Paradise" is headed straight for success is that Thiessen is a brilliant singer-songwriter. Not only does he sound fantastic on each and every song on the album, but the lyrics demonstrate vulnerability. While there is definitely some angst and agony depicted in the numbers, there is also a sense of hope and light. There is a profound poetry and depth to his art that is hard to find nowadays. When you listen to this album, you can expect all sorts of musical twists that will leave you hooked. With all his talents, it should come as no surprise that Thiessen was chosen for an Artist showcase concert at the Winnipeg Folk Festival.
