Canada’s contribution to the international music scene is well documented, but it’s not just musicians we’re exporting south of the border. One of the most successful producers in all of North America is Quebec-born Daniel Lanois. Since 1970, he’s been twisting knobs and offering his expert insight to countless acts, including U2 and Brian Eno, so it’s easy to forget that the guy is also a talented solo artist.
Here Is What Is is the soundtrack to a documentary film of the same name that basically follows artist Daniel Lanois around the world for a year. The album was originally released in late 2007 from Lanois' Red Floor records website in a variety of packages. Ultimately, while packages are nice for collectors and dedicated fans, it's the music that matters.
