ROB VAARMEYER – Poster Child


This solo release from Winnipeg’s Rob Vaarmeyer is a nice little display of the songwriting chops that RV commands. With just a voice and acoustic guitar (occasionally tracked with a second guitar courtesy of another quintessential local artist, Bobby Stahr), Poster Child is far from a highly produced, polished product, but it gets the job done. Tunes like “Snowbank” and “Famous in Winnipeg” will elicit smiles from proud prairie people, while “Do You Smell Something Burning?” and “Hard On Things” are bound to get chuckles from anyone.
