Beautiful Scars

It’s a busy time of premieres from Tom Wilson, aka Lee Harvey Osmond, aka one of three Rodeo Kings, aka that large, melodic growling man from the former Junkhouse.

He’s premiered the latest video for the captivating single Blue Moon Drive from his upcoming album, Beautiful Scars. The video itself is best described by Wilson as “Toontown goes Sin City.”

Produced by Michael Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) in the intimacy of his Toronto Roncesvalle studio, the humanity of Beautiful Scars is like the warmth of blood that rushes to the cut: A sudden alive jolt in the middle of peril and uncertainty; a suspension of possibility that anything can happen next, says his press release.

Set for release on April 7 via Latent Recordings, Beautiful Scars is the third solo album from Wilson’s Lee Harvey Osmond alter ego, and follows two albums, A Quiet Evil and The Folk Sinner which were previously long-listed for the Polaris Prize and nominated for a JUNO Award.

In addition to releasing another album, Wilson has recently signed a deal with Random House to publish his first book. Lee Harvey Osmond heads for Canada’s West Coast for a string of dates with Colin James, stopping March 28 at the Kelowna Community Theatre.
