Alan Rhody

" He has earned a level of respect and recognition that places him in the vanguard of pioneers of the contemporary roots music movement." --Toronto Star

With "Boxcars Of Memories" (Ashwood Recordings/CD), his eighth and newest album release, Alan Rhody gives us an intimate tour, a wide-ranging emotional chart of one of today's standout solo acoustic artists in that great expanse known as the singer-songwriter.

Rhody's music has taken him to every corner of North America, to festivals, concert halls, schools, coffee houses, saloons, universities and house concerts as well as national television and radio. And though his songwriting has earned him recognition and many Gold and Platinum Record Awards, Rhody still loves making that connection in a live performance setting.

"You can not only tell the story, but put across the passions and sensibilities within that story or moment." he says, adding, "That's where I'm most comfortable."

His self-written compositions run the breadth of folk, country-rock, bluegrass and country blues, as indicated by those who've recorded his songs. Rhody's own critically acclaimed recordings have featured duets with John Prine and Maura O'Connell and musical contributions from the late John Hartford, and Gillian Welch partner, David Rawlings.
