LIVE MUSIC (song circle cancelled this week)- Wired to the sky & Bird City
May 9 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
// Wired To The Sky
Wired To The Sky is the ever-evolving solo project of Canadian songwriter, Dylan Perkons. After relocating from Montreal to the West Coast he began performing new material, frequently collaborating with a rotating cast of Vancouver Island musicians. In late 2016 the band entered the studio to record their debut album, produced by Juno Award-winner Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde). The upcoming 2017 release, titled Steady Sparrow, Steady Flight finds Perkons’ residing comfortably in a post-Americana landscape. Though his dusty baritone remains at the front and center of the album, the dynamic arrangements carry the listener through the songs. The album features contributions from Pat McTaggart, Dave Thompson, Kathryn Calder, Laura Mitic, Marc Jenkins, Nevada Brown, Michael Lewis and Megan McCaffrey. Swaying between colorful indie folk and eerie country-noir, the music compliments the earnest writing woven throughout the songs.
// Bird City
With “Bird City” Jenny moves beyond her quirky omnichord project, playing sparse, personal songs on the banjo and tenor guitar. These songs have always been part of her songwriting process, but while her autobiographical and indie-pop songs would easily find a home on the omnichord or with her band, these exposed and poetic songs of paranoia, heart break and self-wondering have been carefully set aside. Jenny has been writing these songs and developing this project for nearly 15 years, and is ready to bring the project to the audience it deserves.
