Morgan Doctor - Is This Home Review
by Sherrill Fulghum
Morgan Doctor moved from California to Toronto in the mid nineties. Besides sponsoring numerous drum circles she has also performed with Bob Wiseman formerly of Blue Rodeo, Ron Sexsmith, MC Hammer, Broken Social Scene, and members of the Barenaked Ladies. Doctor has also participated as the percussionist for dance workshops. It is from these improvisational sessions that Doctor got the material for inclusion in her debut album "Is This Home"
Doctor's talents as a drummer and percussionist are matched only by her songwriting abilities. She has crafted some beautiful percussion progressions. They are a study in how music should move and progress in a smooth pattern. The occasional idle chatter and even sometimes her singing distracts form that beauty.
A musician often lives on the road and at times to a point where they aren't even sure where home is anymore. The overall theme of Doctor's album "Is This Home" is about where people call home; may of the titles refer to places where people can be found.
"Is This Home" by Morgan Doctor is a masterpiece of percussion and drumming.
