Late show: JOHN LEFEBVRE with guests KYLA COOPMAN BAND
John Lefebvre has, to say the least, a pretty unusual profile for an emerging rock artist. He didn't write his first song until his was 45, and didn't record his first album until he was 56. A busker during his roustabout youth in Calgary, he was a lawyer during what he calls his "wasted" adult years, when his musical interests had to take a back seat to supporting his family. Then, in 2007, he found himself with time on his hands in Los Angeles. As co-founder of Neteller, a Pay Pal-like system for online gamblers and other consumers that made him millions, he was busted for violating a New York State ban on online gambling. While awaiting trial, he went into the studio with veteran producer Brian Ahern (Anne Murray, Emmylou Harris, George Jones), a fellow Canadian who had been impressed by a demo that Lefebvre's friends had talked him into sending, and recorded "Psalngs," an oddly compelling double disc of snarling anti-establishment commentaries, spiritual hymns to God's green Earth and love ballads. Lefebvre’s rough and tumble rock and roll, contemplative piano ballads, boozy rockabilly and west coast groove come together in his new record 'Initial Album'. This artist really spans the stylistic gamut, and ties it all together with scathing wit and commendable wisdom.

"We are a small collection of hairy musicians, we like to jam, we like to dance & we like creating cosy psychedelic, folk-rock type environments for people to space out to.
Playing live is what we do best, if you would like to book us to play at your venue, party, festival, or in your house, boat, garden, train or canoe then get in touch"
