Halifax-based songwriter Ria Mae is a complex person. There's Ria the songwriter, and Ria the performer - then there's Ria the poet, and Ria the person. All related but somehow different. But Ria's been given a great gift. The ability to be weave all those personas into one clear focus.

The music of Ben Caplan & The Casual Smokers is diverse, ranging from poetic ballads to frenetic gypsy anthems, but even when the band delivers the roughest of bar room stomps, there is a surprising depth and musicianship to the songs. Expressive percussion, upright bass, violin, sax, clarinet, flute, and terrific use of call and response sing-along choruses all help Caplan & The Casual Smokers stand out from the masses influenced by the same sounds.
