While Kim Stockwood’s world spills out well beyond the shores of Newfoundlandand Labrador, she is anchored heart and soul to this place. She seeks out what is special here and searches for a voice that will reflect her longing and love for the province. One way she has found to capture that voice is to go “Back To The Water.” Her wealth of experience and her longing for home have laid the foundation for “Back To The Water.” The album is filled with the sound and fury of a place that surges upward with a fist of rock and grabs life from the sky’s air. The album is enriched and enlivened by Newfoundland musical luminaries and session players who would shame the Nashville Scene. Kim has chosen her songs carefully, with the romance of the “St. John’s Waltz” held arm’s-length against the everlasting anguish of Atlantic Blue. Ron Hynes is served well here. The title track, “Back To The Water,” was written with her close friend, Damhnait Doyle and you can hear it now at thetelegram.com. Click here to here the title track.
