Actor/carpenter/songsmith Ben Kunder has been working on his music for the past seven years, and has finally released a debut solo record, Golden. A lovely effort it is too, featuring strong and warm vocals, nicely-crafted folk-rock songs, and top-notch production and playing. The latter is provided by co-producer John Dinsmore (NQ Arbuckle) and such noted guest players and harmony vocalists as Kirty Scholte, Rick Knox, Aaron Goldstein (Cowboy Junkies), Brian Murphy (Alvvays), John Connolly, and Ladies Of The Canyon Anna Ruddick, Maia Davies and Jasmine Bleile. Kunder is equally convincing on a sparse voices and guitar only ballad like "Don't Dance" and fuller-sounding band numbers.

Kunder played a number of T.O. shows prior to the official album release gig at the Dakota this week. More Ontario and Quebec dates are listed on his website.
