ONLINE REVIEW BY MARK E. WATERBURY: Atlanta's Gilbert Kaneda is a singer/songwriter that seems to take pages from Dylan, Jim Morrison and Buddy Holly to heart, and then run them through his soul to create a hybrid of thought provoking lyrics sung in a robust and heartfelt timbre that lends a modern folk vibe to the music. The stripped down feel places you in intimate company of Gilbert's psyche on this debut. A twenty-first century poet with deep running roots.
