Thu. August 18th 2011 Railway Club (No Minors)
$8 at the door only.
With the recent release of their debut EP, "we're all friends and lovers until it falls apart", Vancouver's Redbird is quickly winning over fans and critics alike. "Savannah Leigh Wellman has a clear, true voice and a touch for folk-pop that mingles the melancholy with the melodic. Naturally, it's a seductive mix." (Georgia Straight). They will be joined by New York's Ana Egge, who is set to release her new album Bad Blood, produced by Steve Earle recorded at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY, via Ammal Records on August 23rd
Steve Earle stated,
"Saskatchewan-born, Brooklyn-based folk troubadour Ana Egge isn't your run-of-the-mill alternative-country singer. Using unique production and rock-based chord progressions, Egge has made a name for herself as a Gillian Welch figure with a rocker attitude, which once prompted Lucinda Williams to call her "the Nina Simone of folk." Her upcoming 12-song record 'Bad Blood,' produced by 'Treme' star and country badass Steve Earle, gives new life to the folk genre, especially on the title track: Egge's soft-spoken lyrics float lucidly beneath a driving bass-heavy beat, tremolo guitars and spastic and distorted slide guitar."
- Cameron Matthews, Spinner
Bad Blood will be released August 23, 2011 via Ammal records. The 12-song set was produced by Steve Earle and recorded at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY. Bad Blood was mixed and mastered by Ray Kennedy (Earle and Kennedy's production partnership includes the Grammy winning Lucinda Williams album Car Wheels On A Gravel Road, the Ron Sexsmith favorite Blue Boy, and many more.
Steve Earle stated,
"Ana Egge's songs are low and lonesome, big square-stare noir ballads which she plays on a guitar she built with her own two hands and sings like she's telling us her deepest, &&."

Lakefield (Indie Pop)

From the first cry to the final breath, Lakefield’s story has been a humble one, co-authored by five complicated friends. It’s one well known by anyone who has ever longed to live and love through music: the euphoria of a perfectly executed decrescendo; the long fall on to deaf ears; the big-kid, major-label ambition, radiating energy into the ... more info
