Folly & the Hunter – A Band Review

   Originally, it was the vocals in the song "Ghost" that drew us to Folly & the Hunter. But we sampled other songs by the band and found more reasons to appreciate their offerings. For example, "Watch for Deer at Dawn" includes a subtle energy shift at the 2:31 mark and a slow guitar riff both at 1:19 and 3:41. After a while, "Vultures" turned into our favorite Folly & the Hunter song, but that may change to another offering soon.
     The members of Folly & the Hunter are Nick Vallee, Laurie-A. Torres, Christopher Fox, Phil Creamer, and Nick Scofield. Folly & the Hunter is based in Montreal, but Vallee is from Vancouver, Torres is a native of Quebec and Fox was originally in England (Sussex). The band recently released “Tragic Care,” an album that includes the songs “Ghost” and “Watch for Deer at Dawn.”
