Heralded by the Globe & Mail and No Depression as a roots rock wunderkind. Joe Nolan the Edmonton, Alberta native is back. Cry Baby, an album that finally opens up what Nolan has kept locked tightly for the past five years. The 10-song collection is a trip through melancholic madness, touching on darkness and depression, broken relationships and endless booze-fuelled evenings. Yet, at its core is Nolan’s unwavering strength as a lyricist, and his wounded-heart delivery that reminds us of our humanity. Cry Baby is, in essence, Nolan unapologetically sharing his story, and through that finding a second chance and a new beginning.
If there’s a common thread to Cry Baby, it is indeed a sense of walking back from the edge and recapturing joy—and perhaps personal identity.
