Ryan Driver is this unstoppable, quietly torrential flow of music, that has been coming out of Toronto, Ontario for a number of years now.

He's been a key member of a number of the most interesting ensembles in the city. He's worked with Sandro Perri , Eric Chenaux and Jennifer Castle and he has his own mutant jazz standards group, The Ryan Driver Quartet.

He plays guitar and sings, but while he's recognised as an accomplished improviser he has also just made the greatest soul record of the decade.

'Who's Breathing?' is the follow up to 2009s incredibly promising debut "Feeler Of Pure Joy " ("Remarkable" 4/5 UNCUT).

Sounding like JJ Cale, Joao Gilberto and John Martyn; soft, powerful and precise, it's achingly fleeting, poignant and underpinned by incredible song writing.

"A formidable songwriter" UNCUT
