Skye Wallace's latest work - L I V I N G || P A R T S - is finally ready to see the light of day.
After months of arduous labour - and lots of help from friends - let us make this impending completion a
Skye Wallace works to compile all of the stark elements of the Canadian landscape into a sort of musical archive. Inspired by historical non-fiction and field recordings, particularly the esteemed National Parks Project, her songs are made out of stories hidden in plain sight. The resulting sound is melodic, gritty, and orchestral.
She is currently residing, performing, and writing in Vancouver, BC.
After a successful nation-wide tour and West Coast festival circuit in 2013 (Artswells, North Country Fair, Khatsalano!, Sled Island, Edge of the World), Skye Wallace now plans to record, release, and tour a new album by next spring. The new sounds and compositions of the highly anticipated release are comprised of influences from classical string pieces, the grunge-folk movement, and her own vulnerable storytelling.
Joining us on this night of nights:
A journalist once described Honourary MD's music as "danceable freak folk." The band was immensely flattered. Honourary MD is comprised of a bunch of multi-instrumentalist medical students and a couple losers that pretend to be med students too sometimes. Reunited after an almost two-year hiatus, if ever you planned to have a heart attack at a concert, this would be the show to do it at.
"’s tough to argue with something as monstrously hooky as “In the Hands of Ghosts”, which splits the difference between the Pixies, Vancouver’s exasperatingly underrated Blue Violets, and Wellman’s own highly developed grasp of songcraft. “In the Hands of Ghosts” is the song that attaches itself to you like a super-aggressive brain slug, but closer “Oh Please My Heart” is barely less memorable."
