Artist: John Henrys, Album: Sweet As The Grain, Song: Truth Be Told

"Truth be told, I was a puppet on her strings.  The John Henrys are a band from Ottawa.  They are Rey Sabatin, Steve Tatone, Doug Gouthro, Darryl Quinlan and Geoff Ward.  They released their self titled debut locally in 2004.  Sweet As The Grain, was their second album released in 2008 and picked up by Linus Entertainment in Burlington, Ontario.  This album really opened the band up to a wider, international audience.  They've toured Canada and the US in support of the album and received favourable reviews from the UK press.  Their sound is country rock.  This particular track, Truth Be Told, is a jangly country song with great harmonies.  Their sound is fresh while conjuring up memories of bands like the Byrds.  They just released their third album entitled, White Linen, this past year and it is available in limited edition white vinyl.  You can follow the band at  You can hear the song, Truth Be Told, on You Tube (  As always, you can hear this song as well as others that I blog about each day on Live 365 (  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
