This week’s featured act on TransCanada Music West (8pm MT Friday) is Jom Comyn, in concert in CKUA’s Performance Space. If there were a soundtrack to those cold, dark Canadian winters, it would sound something like Jom Comyn’s latest full length record In The Dark on 99, All The Time, All Time Time. That record made our list of the Top 40 most played releases in 2014 on these airwaves. Last year, Jom followed that critically-acclaimed record up with a new EP The Black Pits.
Both under his given name of Jim Cuming, and as Jom Comyn. Jim has released a slough of albums ranging from traditional folk to experimental psychedelia. He always has an incredible touch with melody, and a penchant for affecting lyrics.
This week’s set features Tom Murray on bass, Andy Mulcair on drums, Jessica Jalbert on guitar, and Jim Cuming, aka Jom Comyn himself on vocals and guitar.
