Rodney DeCroo
After returning from a five-year sabbatical from music in 2015 with the intimate collection Campfires On The Moon, Vancouver singer/songwriter, poet and playwright Rodney DeCroo’s musical evolution continues with his seventh full-length album, Old Tenement Man, a sprawling work of unflinching lyric-driven rock and roll, infused with the legacies of Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen.

“His powerful new album Old Tenement Man [ …] is a record of record of noisy peaks (the distortion -blazed “Jacob’s Well”) and delicate valleys (the lovely acoustic exorcism “Little Hunger”). The album is important because it showcases DeCroo as someone who- like Neil Young and Lou Reed – is capable of reinventing himself sonically.”
– Georgia Straight

“The album to make all sorts who didn’t “get it” before figure it out. He sounds like he’s having a blast and it’s infectious.”
– Vancouver Sun

“[DeCroo] turns up the volume on Old Tenement Man, with bracing results.”
– FYI Music News

“Tenement is, to borrow a phrase, a brilliant record. It’s a grit-caked, guts-stained guttural work that’s so immediate, alive and honest you’ll hear its heartbeat before you press play, but so timeless that you’d swear you could sing every line on first listen.It’s astonishing, really, just how classic of a contemporary rock record it is.”
