Thom Gill - Single Girls

Full review to follow. Once again the Holy Oak invited some of the best Toronto songwriters of right now to pay tribute to their local musical heroes, with their choices ranging from past to present and from the familiar to the obscure. As far as I can tell, there's a lot more water in this well, so hopefully the series won't end here.

Thom Gill heard Ronley Teper play this song at the Tranzac — y'know, once, a few years back. Sometimes that's all it takes to give a song a foothold in your mind, and now here he's re-animated it, combining Teper's incisive wit — cutting yet sympathetic — with his own soulful delivery.
