All the Way Home
Radiogram was formed by acclaimed Vancouver singer-songwriter Ken Beattie just before the turn of the century and their debut album, Unbetween, was released on Transsiberian/Scratch in April 2000. Their sophomore album, All the Way Home, is a rootsy mixture of country, pop, and americana distilled with a healthy dose of ambience, some art-rock, and a dash of chamber music. Combine all this with the world weary folk tales of Ken Beattie, and you have a concoction that is decidedly Radiogram. Music that is equally at home on the back porch or the balcony, a high rise or a homestead. 'Summer Song Summer' from All The Way Home is also track 2 on the Nettwerk Records Compilation The Grass Is Always Bluer, alongside such scene heavyweights as The Jayhawks, Iris Dement, Lucinda Williams and iron and Wine.
