Kitchener-Waterloo artist, JoJo Worthington, has won numerous awards + accolades, yet hasn’t stopped pushing her work to uncomfortable boundaries. Forging ahead with Epoch producer Connory Ballantyne + engineer William Crann, Worthington’s latest work ’\\’ or ‘Two Lines’ is a surge into new territory.
Her vocalizations reminisce of Kate Bush, her ingenuity with looping techniques remind one of the omnipresent Canadian force of Owen Pallet, and her completely refreshing take on the [often blasé] ukulele is pushing the experimental-folk musician to create some of the most forward-thinking music of her generation.
With special guest: Samson Wrote
Samson Wrote creates experimental alt-folk. This work confronts the ways in which sexuality, community, family, and anxiety interrelate.
Rebekah Hawker is a country folk singer-songwriter from Barrie, Ontario, that city you drive through on your way to the cottage. She sounds like an equal-parts mix of the following artists: Kathleen Edwards, Joni Mitchell, Kacey Musgraves, Patsy Cline and Martha Wainwright. She has played in venues across Canada, most recently as an artist on the Via Rail Train. You can catch her on tour this summer in support of her debut EP, ‘Careful Women,’ out August 23rd.
Crafting songs about all the intimate moments of youth, from dysfunction to desire to death, Missy Bauman performs folk music with fangs. She is not afraid to sit you down on the bed, look you in the eyes, and tell you the painful truths you need to hear.
