Event Archive - JEFF YOUNGER PRESENTS volume 59 featuring: Joseph Blood, Aaron Joyce, David Ward, Andre Chrys

Mon. November 26th 2012 Railway Club (No Minors)
$7 at the door only.
A killer night of men who write killer songs. Joseph Blood will be fresh off the road from an epic Bend Sinister tour. Aaron Joyce will be performing in Vancouver for the first time in a LONG time. David Ward brings his magic back to the Railway stage, and Andre Chrys brings the heart and soul to the evening.

Joseph Blood
He’s been called the “Second coming of Gram Parsons” a “true renaissance man” and “one of the classiest musicians you’ll meet”. However you want to see him Joseph Blood strives to entertain and expand his horizons at every turn on the road. “Hitting all the best parts of modern Americana” Blood’s songs are a blend of dark country, celtic punk and chamber pop. His self described “acid-country” has been winning him fans across North America and Europe as more and more people latch on to his urgent, captivating melodies and songs.

Aaron Joyce
Supremely talented and especially thoughtful, one of Vancouver's favourite sons returns for his first performance in Vancouver in far too long, premiering a bunch of brand new songs penned in the sunny heart of Naramata.

David Ward
“Imagine Jeff Buckley’s untethered falsetto with Stevie Wonder’s warm, grainy tenor…David Ward has mastered both, plus all point between. Ward is clearly a versatile and ambitious talent.” UNCUT

Andre Chrys
Vancouver roots rock with plenty of soul, a touch of twang and stellar songwriting.
The Georgia Straight said: “Andre Chrys is a singer-songwriter with a taste for the sort of barstool wisdom and dirty-old-town laments that used to be the sole domain of Tom Waits. The lyrics of "Guardian Angel (You've Been Drinking on the Job)", for instance, are cute in a way that the author of "The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me)" might appreciate, even if the title gives everything away. "The Modification Song" is equally clever, with its observations of our constant drive--and utter failure--to perfect ourselves.”
