Doug PaisleyRolling Stone magazine dubbed Doug Paisley 2010 CD, Constant Companion, one of the year’s best singer-songwriter albums, and with good reason. This Toronto-born artist crafts sparse, soulful songs with folk and country echoes, gorgeous melodies thrown into stark relief by his straightforward, plain-spoken lyrics that manage to feel both open-ended and profound.

In the words of Uncut magazine, "This is a musician, you instinctively feel, who's in deep. There's something sure-footed and ageless about Paisley's simple, acoustic-and-piano songs, lent further authenticity by an old-school voice that drifts easily between folk and country. At times he's like '70's JJ Cale, all husk and gentle intonation, at others with the earthy chill of Hoyt Axton and Will Oldham." Put more simply by the New Yorker: “Paisley will lull you with his good nature, but he won’t rock you to sleep after that.”
