The Biltmore Cabaret & Steam Whistle Pilsner Present:

"FIVER is the solo project of Toronto-born and raised singer and songwriter Simone Schmidt, known for fronting The Highest Order (a band that just released its debut album, If It's Real, back in March) and the acclaimed country outfit One Hundred Dollars. No matter which name she is performing under, two strengths of Schmidt’s that immediately arrest you are that voice – awesome and haunting, strong as oak but sanded with sublime vulnerability - and the palpable Dust Bowl-thick instrumental air that fleshes out the mood of every song. Each is so commanding that it’s a testament to her gifts for bleak, poetic firepower and sure-handed nuance that neither crumbles under the magnitude of the other."

- Justin Wesley, No Depression

Schmidt just wrote a bunch of jams for the Timber Timbre record and is touring central and west coast of Canada, with Will Kidman of The Constantines backing her up in Fiver.

As one of Vancouver’s most sought-after sidemen, there’s no questioning Andy Bishop’s craftsmanship and musical smarts. Just as importantly, he also knows when to trust his instincts, and it’s this balance of precision and spontaneity that shaped the sound of his sophomore album as White Ash Falls, Over the Night.

In the couple of years that led up to this new LP, Bishop served time as a touring member of the rock band Yukon Blonde, as the live bassist for popsmith James Younger, and as a singer-guitarist in the atmospheric folk group Twin River. Having soaked up so many new sounds, Bishop rode a creative high when penning his own country-tinged material.
