Stanstead QC – An Evening with VOA

VOA doesn’t want to be cool, or trendy. The collaborative project wishes to write “good music” for music’s sake. Every note of every work is examined through the lens of “is this what will make the song the best version of itself”. It is a study of the pop rock genre, a conscious effort at creating self-supporting works of musical magic.

Glistening guitar tones over a driving foundation are at the heart of the VOA sound. Since the founding members of VOA are established pillars of their local music scene, regal rock is the term used to describe the musical origins of the project. Music for movies is what they produce: deep imagery to be paired with amazing images.

JF Coley, a fifth-generation musician, songwriter, arranger and producer, has been active in the Canadian music scene since 2002, as a member of Flicker, Coley, and now VOA. A multi-instrumentalist JF‘s demos for an upcoming Coley album are what started VOA.

Pascal Desmarais, also a musician, songwriter, arranger
and producer, was a member of Coley in 2006. He has also played in DelaVoy, Union of Slaves and Fable; as well as performed in a variety of other musical projects. Without Pascal there is no VOA.

Potluck vegetarian dinner at 6 pm. Concert goes at 7.30 pm. $20 at the door.

Stanstead – Dennis Ellsworth & Kinley Dowling

An evening with Dennis Ellsworth & Kinley Dowling in Stanstead.
The Brunelle-Newman House, 18 ch de Fairfax.

RSVP: newman.hal@gmail.com / 819-238-1470

Ellsworth makes no secret that his songs are characterised by a kind of dark optimism that is informed by early influences such as Roy Orbison, Kris Kristofferson and Neil Diamond (he recalls singing “Forever In Blue Jeans” in front of the mirror while brushing his teeth as a child!).

And although he’s refined his sound and approach to writing over the years, some things remain constant. Like his acoustic guitar that he rescued from a 1970’s era cottage in the Catskills – a guitar on which he’s written almost every song he’s put down on tape and believes has a lot to do with his gift for songwriting.

But while his latest album “Romantic As It Gets” dwells heavily on the necessity of remaining positive, Ellsworth himself says bluntly “I’m hopeful but I’m not a firm believer!”. The result is a seamless blend of modern East Coast folk and rock and roll, with shades of classic Americana, roots and country haunting the edges.

Kinley is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. While she’s well known as a member of Newfoundland’s indie ensemble Hey Rosetta!. she’s also an emerging singer-songwriter and recently released her solo debut album “Letters Never Sent” in October 2016.

Kinley is one of the most sought after string players when a group decides to make an album, and she has recorded on over 50 records over the span of her career.

She’s also seen multiple appearances with Grammy-winning artist Anne Murray. She has also toured Australia, USA, Canada and Europ multiple times appearing at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Mumford & Sons Gentlemen Of The Road tour.

“This promises to be a magical evening! World class talent, up close and personal! Don’t miss it!”

What’s The Story about Tim Moxam?

The songstresses Ivy Mairi (The Weather Station, Bruce Peninsula) and Raffa Weyman (RALPH and formerly Queen of the Fleet) provided accompanying vocals on several tracks. The album was recorded, mixed and produced by Chris Stringer, who has worked with Timber Timbre, Ohbijou, The Wooden Sky and Gentlemen Reg, among countless others. In 2016 Tim shared the stage with The Strumbellas, Donovan Woods, Coeur de Pirate, to name a few. His single Harvest For The Queen was #63 on CBC Radio 2’s Top 100 Songs of 2016 and #76 on CBCMusic’s Essential Songs of 2016.

What’s The Story about Liz Stringer?

Melbourne’s Liz Stringer, one of Australia’s most respected songwriters and musicians, returns to Canada in summer 2017, following a year of international touring to support the release of her acclaimed 2016 LP “All The Bridges”. Recorded in Portland, OR at Type Foundry Studio, with producer Adam Selzer (M Ward, The Decemberists, Jolie Holland) at the helm, and released in North America through Roaring Girl Records, “All The Bridges” has continued to solidify Stringer’s reputation for the highest quality musicianship, creative autonomy and intensely moving live shows.

All The Bridges hit a swag of favourite lists for 2016 in Australia, including the Inside Sleeve’s top five records of 2016 (ABC Radio National) and number one in the Best Australian Releases at Basement Discs record store, Melbourne.

An afternoon with acclaimed Australian troubadour Jordie Lane (featuring Clare Reynolds) – Montreal QC

Jordie FSMF

“Displaying the soulful tenderness of Ron Sexsmith and Ray LaMontagne…Lane’s gentle finger picking and intimate vocals lend a somber grace that is universal” – Rolling Stone Magazine

Lane’s music, seems like it comes from another place and time. The songs are nostalgic and immediately affecting, his rhythmic guitar playing is authentic and raw, and the rich resonance of his voice is simply otherworldly.

It is a voice that has taken Lane around the world, performing major festivals in the US, Canada, UK and Australia, and touring with the likes of Billy Bragg, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Old Crow Medicine Show, Neko Case, Cat Power, Ruthie Foster and The Moody Blues.

Australia’s leading folk/roots magazine Rhythms have called Lane “one of Australia’s brightest new roots music stars” and Rolling Stone Magazine said his debut album Sleeping Patterns “may well come to be regarded as one of the most assured ever by a local artist”.
