Toronto music mainstay Tom Wilson has enjoyed success in several different incarnations throughout his career. He scored several hits as frontman for the band Junkhouse, he's released solo records, and he put out six albums as a member of the Canadian alt-rock group Blackie and the Rodeo Kings (with Stephen Fearing and Colin Linden).
His latest effort, A Quiet Evil, goes in another direction entirely. Released under the pseudonym LeE HARVeY OsMOND and produced by Cowboy Junkies founder Michael Timmins, A Quiet Evil delves into a genre Wilson describes as "acid folk."
Joined here by Mountain Stage band members Michael Lipton on electric guitar, Ammed Solomon on drums, Steve Hill on bass, Ron Sowell on harmonica, Bob Thompson on piano and Julie Adams on background vocals, LeE HARVeY OsMOND performs songs from A Quiet Evil, including an atmospheric cover of Lou Reed's "I Can't Stand It."
