The Toronto Star declares Eaglesmith as an artist who is “without doubt, relentlessly true to his craft, to his world view, and to his fans.” With 16 independent albums to his credit, Eaglesmith has won a Juno Award – the equivalent of a Grammy in his native Canada – for Best Roots and Traditional Album – Solo and the Canadian Independent Music Award. He is the subject of not one but two tribute albums of Eaglesmith’s work that have been recorded, and his devoted coterie of fans, known as “Fredheads,” follow him from show to show. In addition to “Thinkin’ ‘Bout You” in Broken Bridges, his songs have also been used in films by noted director Martin Scorsese and actor James Caan.
