Artist: Moonlight Graham (Greer), Album: Palookaville, Song: Time Flies

"Gotta get on an airplane and get out of here 'cus time is no longer on my side.  How the time flies."  Moonlight Graham is a singer songwriter by the name of Graham Greer.  Graham was born in Montreal but raised in the Cornwall, Ontario area.  He rose to prominence during the nineties as the front man for the band, The Barstool Prophets (see blog 8/23/10).  They signed with Mercury Records and had a string of solid albums and successful radio singles during the mid to late nineties.  They also toured Canada constantly during those years with band's like 54-40, Junkhouse, Big Sugar, Our Lady Peace and Moist to name a few.  They also opened for The Dave Matthews Band in Canada.  By 1999, the band unofficially stopped recording and touring and Graham went on to produce a record in 2003, under the moniker, Moonlight Graham.  The album, Palookaville, is a solid listen and perhaps a hidden independent gem.  The music is more alt country in comparison to the music of The Barstool Prophets although his trademark vocal styling and strong songwriting are certainly comparable.  There are so many good songs on this release and every listen seems to add more to their appeal.  Time Flies, is one such example and you can check it out on You Tube (  Graham would follow up this album with a sophomore release in 2009.  However, this time he chose to release it under his given name.  You can follow Graham at  You can purchase the album, Palookaville, on Itunes.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
