“I have two lenses,” admits Montreal-based singer-songwriter, Chris Velan. “The small one is focused internally, learning about myself. The large one point’s outward, observing how the world works in its complexity. I try to find my own truths on both those levels of inquiry.” Searching for these truths since first picking up a guitar at the age of nine, Velan's journey to understand how he and the world itself operates has taken him down two distinct paths: law and music. In his early 20s, Velan was determined to make sense of humanity’s struggles through a career in law, only to realize - after collaborating on the Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars’ documentary - that he could make as great an impact through music by its simple yet profound ability to connect people. Motivated by a range of influences spanning 70s’ singer-songwriters, blues, rock, 80s alternative, West African music and reggae, Velan continues his goal to carve out his own path, directly inspired by the loneliness, searching, exhilaration and exhaustion of a nomadic musical lifestyle.
Armed with violin, loop pedal and voice, sonic weaver Hannah Epperson creates elegantly fierce and moving musical landscapes. As an evocative solo performer, Hannah has been lassoed into opening for and sharing stage with some of Canada's favourites in the indie and folk scenes. After the informal debut of her home-produced and self-released solo album in August 2011, Hannah has quickly been embraced by Western Canada's music scene as a “wild talent” in Vancouver's “Super Group of indie musicians.”
