Milly's Cafe is Fred Eaglesmith's 16th release. It's raw, bare-boned and totally Fred. As his career has progressed, Fred's mercurial songwriting has defied description but has been pegged as bluegrass, folk, country and even rock n' roll. His rootsy songs reflect and comment on life and how we live it. With his new album, Eaglesmith's smoky voice delivers songs that expose everything from the hard knock life of truckers ('18 Wheels'), thieves and cowboys, ('Milly's Cafe', 'Rocky') to the soft twilight beauty of the prairies ('Kansas'). Eaglesmith's lyrics turn the lives of everyday people into poem and song. From his beginnings with self-titled debut album Fred J. Eaglesmith to the present, Eaglesmith's lyric-driven songs have enticed audiences across the country.
