Mike Edel, Victoria BC
A delicately catchy record that rolls through its eight tracks as freshly and easily as wind across the harvest." - Calgary Herald. Fresh of the release of "The Last of Our Mountains" Edel creates catchy indie folk that paints nostalgia of a youth spent in the wheat fields and foothills below the Rocky Mountains. While "The Last of Our Mountains" has garnered much acclaim in 2011, Edel's live performances have propelled his show to a must-see prestige. Mike Edel is Victorias Zone Band of the Month for May 2011.

The Ruffled Feathers, Vancouver, BC
It began with the young mandolin playing existentialist Charley Wu singing anthems with a loop pedal in the Gallery Lounge at the University of British Columbia. There he stumbled upon the soft-spoken sparrow Gina Loes. in October of 2008. He invited her travel through the woods with him to sing songs at the piano in his birdhouse. Together they made beautiful music and stretched their wings so wide that in January of 2009 they spotted the gilded melodies of trumpeter Andrew Lee sparkling through the skyscrapers and trees. With a few gathered sticks and battered bows their housemates Alex Leckie and Brian Lerher emerged from their nests on drums and bass and stitched together the heavenly and earthly sounds for the many tuneful evenings that would lay ahead.

Cover: Doors: 8:30 pm. $8
