Skye Wallace, Wooden Horsemen and Jasper Sloan Yip
October 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
FREAKY FRIDAY OCT 13th! The Record Centre has got one heck of a lineup coming to Ottawa.
Featured are three up and coming acts from Vancouver and Toronto, performing at one of Ottawa’s raddest venues. Friends and family, don’t miss out, this one’s gonna be fantastic!
MUSIC AT 7PM
Skye Wallace is what happens when a classically trained singer with east coast roots discovers punk rock in their youth.
Hailed coast to coast as a “national treasure” (Sad Mag), Skye Wallace bases out of Toronto, Ontario. Her newest album “Something Wicked”, produced by Jim Bryson, was listed as one of Vancouver Weekly’s Best Albums of 2016 and CBC’s Top 8 Albums You Need To Hear. “Something Wicked” will “burn you to the ground” (Vice/Noisey)!
Garnering critical praise with their folk-laden debut album in 2013, Wooden Horsemen have expanded their sound considerably since embarking on multiple cross-country tours. With the addition of horns and an expanded rhythm section, the group now seamlessly fuses elements of raw blues, soul, gospel and rock. The outcome is a distinctly unique flavor of pop sensible melodies, driven by a pulse for which the band has built it’s reputation as a must-see live set.
JASPER SLOAN YIP
Jasper Sloan Yip’s start was humble. A self-taught musician, he gave his first performance in 2007 on a stage he built in the backyard of his Vancouver home.
Fast forward to 2017, ten years after his debut backyard performance, as Jasper sits on his most realized collection of songs yet. Produced by John Raham (Dan Mangan, Frazey Ford, Dralms), Post Meridiem refines the elements he has become known for, with eloquent reflections of life and loss woven through arrangements that climb from whispered confessions to soaring soundscapes.
Post Meridiem will be released in October 2017 on Afterlife Music, and distributed by Membran. It will be supported with tour dates around Canada as well as a return to Europe – perhaps inspiring the next chapter for this introspective troubadour.
