Kevin Hearn & Thinbuckle - Havana WinterWhen not playing keyboards for Barenaked Ladies, Kevin makes adventurous yet accessible music he calls “avant rock.” His solo work certainly comes from a brave, whimsical place. The talented artist named his fine 2001 album H-Wing, after the ward at Toronto’s Princess Margaret Hospital where he was treated for leukemia. Kevin’s latest is another daring delight, with dreamy pop concoctions featuring stellar guests like Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Chantal Kreviazuk and the wondrous Mary Margaret O’Hara.
