One of my musical heroes.

Reviews for... THE OX THAT PULLED THE CART

A collection of intricate, luminescent gems.

David Wilcox

LJ Booth is hands down one of the finest songwriters I've had the pleasure to encounter. The Ox That Pulls the Cart is a recording of rare insight and artistry.

Carrie Newcomer

To say that L.J. Booth's new CD THE OX THAT PULLS THE CART is intensely personal is an understatement. To say that it's a new level of achievement for this singer-songwriter, is too. To add that it hangs its hat on some of the best songwriting this accomplished wordsmith has ever penned and includes some topnotch musical accompaniment, would also be correct.

Bill Berry, THE GAZETTE

Few writers I know are as musical, literate and elegant.  I love his stuff and can’t wait for each new song, each new album.  The song, 'The Ox That Pulls the Cart' is the kind of song I wish I wrote…it’s a total gem.

John McCutcheon

LJ Booth is as literate as they come.  As a lyricist, he has the light touch of Lyle Lovett, the unabashed honesty of Leonard Cohen and the sprawling, joyous life of Walt Whitman.  The plainness of his imagery and the economy of his phrasing is only made more effective by his glittering guitar parts and the simple grace of his songs.

His vocal approach also possesses the effective simplicity of Lyle Lovett with a little Gordon Lightfoot thrown in.  On the more raucous tunes like “Hold On!” and the fiddle-driven “Changing Sky”, Booth is still completely in control, driving the songs straight through to their satisfying conclusions.  But it’s on the quiet moments that Booth really shines, wheeling through joy, freedom and longing with simple grace.
