Another Last Call
'Folkins craftily adds dollops of blues guitar and tiny tinges of modern Americana to his solid creations making 'Another Last Call' a truly international sounding release.' - Martin Smit, The Next Big Thing (Nov 09, 2009) 'Another Last Call' is a CD of Doug Folkins in which various styles are nicely interwoven into a unique set of fresh Celtic-inspired songs. Fun is 100% guaranteed! - (valsam) (Belgium), Rootstime.be (Nov 01, 2009) 'Comparisons have been made to the folkpunk & pop of the Pogues & indeed there is that barroom swagger & glee in a lot of the tracks, which let the tragic edges of human behavior colour murk and heart, light & shade to the bounciest of tunes. ' - Martin Smit, The Next Big Thing (Nov 09, 2009) 'Smooth-rolling americana with an Irish chaser. I'm not entirely sure where Folkins wants to lay his sound, but he's adept at whatever he plays. He even changes his voice to fit whatever sound he's in at the moment. Fine music for a back porch autumn afternoon. ' - Jon Worley, Aiding & Abetting.com (Oct 27, 2009) 'There is something very Nick Lowe/Dave Edmunds about this new collection from songwriter Folkins, something very good, very pure and very in love with good Pop.' - Martin Smit, The Next Big Thing (Nov 09, 2009) 'Canadian Celt rocker Doug Folkins gives us music to drink by'' - Q, Qs House Podcast and Blog (Oct 06, 2009) 'Doug Folkins can be defined as a celtic rock songwriter: he loves the characters and human stories that can enrich his songs. He says to take note of each adventure to draw inspiration in his words. ' - Davide Albini, Roots Highway (Italy) (Sep 30, 2009) Doug creates the perfect pub music, while giving the listener a bit more to think of. Imagine Great Big Sea having a 1 night stand with Tom Petty & getting knocked up. Doug would be the product of that union. Another Last Call is one of this year's finest releases.' - Andrea Guy, Artists to Watch-Mossip Music (Aug 21, 2009) 'Another Last Call' has a folk rock sound mixed with country & Celtic. This CD is definitely a surprise to ears that are unfamiliar with this genre. Folkins sings his songs from experience & he takes great pride in his music. Folkins has a strong voice and his fans will appreciate his 5th album. - Lawanda Johnson, The Celebrity Cafe (Jul 27, 2009) 'Folkins brings his rootsy musical sensibilities to his story of longing, featuring Italy & Emily (the girl)and you know he's planning to stay there for as long as it takes for her to show up.. watching the flow of city life pass by him as he scans the crowds for her face. Streets Of Rome.' - Chuck Brown, Free MP3 Music Downloads (Jul 20, 2009) 'Doug Folkins CD - (Another Last Call) is highlighted as 'Cool Celtic to Watch For' by Worldbeat Canada - May 2009.' - Worldbeat Canada, Worldbeat Canada (May 11, 2009) 'Doug Folkins reminds me of Kevin McKrell as I listen to him. There is a definite tendency to mix other musical styles with Celtic sounds on Another Last Call. The play, singing and writing/arrangement on Another Last Call are all very much above average. It is very, very, very good.' - Wildy Haskel, Wildy's World (Apr 25, 2009) 'Another Last Call' lives up to it's name by being the perfect music for an evening at the pub. The songs have enough punch and bounce to keep spirits high, while providing meaningful lyrics. A song like Streets of Rome belongs with some of the best Celtic music out there. - Peter Snow, The Alder Fork Blog and Podcast (Apr 05, 2009) '"How do you describe Doug Folkins? A little bit of Great Big Sea mixed in with a little bit of Blue Rodeo. Folkins can go from traditional Maritime reels, to driving sing along tunes, to songs with emotion and poise. He's simply...amazing." ' - Karen J. Brady, Celtic MP3 Music Magazine, March 2009 (Feb 27, 2009) 'Doug's performance was extremely entertaining, with great energy and a positive vibe. Doug has an amazing ability to relate to his audience and engage the crowd.' - Ian Borenheim - Entertainment Coordinator, Festival Review- Morfee Mountain Music Fest, Mackenzie, BC.
