Liam Titcomb - Liam TitcombOn his debut album, Toronto’s 17-year-old Liam Titcomb writes and sings with surprising maturity and assurance. Songs like the upbeat “Sad Eyes” and the James Taylor-ish “Easy in My Sky” seem tailor-made for radio. But the memorable songs are more obviously autobiographical ones, including “My So Called Life,” which cites his mother and father, Canadian folk legend Brent Titcomb, and “Cover of 17,” which hints at the tension caused by parents who push for their child’s success a little too much.
