It has been said that “time and tide wait for no man,” but haven’t you ever wished that time could slow down, even if it’s just for a while? Maybe you don’t “wanna” have to wake up just yet, or you just want to savor those precious moments in life, milk them for every second they are worth? Tod Hughes echoes those sentiments in the title track of his new album ‘Time Slow Down.’ The Canadian singer/songwriter makes music that “comes from the spirit inside and is meant to touch the soul of the [listener].]
‘Time Slow Down’ has all that soul-touching crammed into one memorable album. Stand-out tracks include ‘Coming Home to You,’ an energetic piece that will have you on the edge of your seat, ‘One of a Kind’ with its sizzling guitar lines, and definitely ‘Drinking Coffee in a Hipster Place’ which takes a cheeky glance at millennials flooding coffee shops with their faces glued to their monitors.
Hughes is also generous with his talent, performing a number of shows where all proceeds go to support those in need. These charities include education in developing countries, micro-finance, and the recent refugee crisis in Syria. If you are one of those that miss the golden era of American Folk, then ‘Time Slow Down’ definitely deserves a place on your playlist.
