Glen MacNeil‘s debut solo album has legs – long legs and his album has reached the hands of No Depression contributor John Apice with a stellar review.

"Where The Heart Remains" by Glen MacNeil

“Where The Heart Remains” by Glen MacNeil

MacNeil has mastered the art of sewing melodies and perceptive lyrics to a performance presentation that has a wool-blend texture. Nothing stingy, (controversial) or soft, (pop-folk) but, comfortable in any weather music. Yes, that’s it. Glen MacNeil’s music is airy, comfortable and satisfying.

Glen MacNeil is an acclaimed acoustic singer-songwriter, whose music embodies the spirit of his Cape Breton Celtic roots, flavoured with hints of country and folk. A man with a guitar, songs in his heart and roots born of the Maritimes, Glen’s well-crafted lyrics, give rise to songs of life, love and hope while bridging the distance between his hero’s and everyday people, reminding us all that the ordinary always leads to a path of extraordinary.

As you listen to the title song: “The Island Is Where the Heart Remains,” — you’ll pick out grains of James Taylor in the gentle melodic guitar and the storyline as it unfolds with impressionable lines. There is no over dramatizing. No whiney pop-folk stance. The sincerity is authentic, balanced and anyone who has a heart will relate to this material.

“..another glittering melody in “Celtic Pride,” that features a haunting, mournful J.P. Cormier fiddle. The melody redeems the sadness of the song and MacNeil’s vocals are optimistic and warm.”
