Victoria-based artist Dylan Perkons upcoming debut, The Healing Day is a collection of richly orchestral songs that reveal an experienced songwriter finally stepping out to record under his own name. Perkons has spent his career to date working under various aliases and projects honing his craft, so while The Healing Day is his first solo outing, it represents a much longer journey. Produced by Evening Hymns’ Jonas Bonnetta at the secluded Port William Sound, The Healing Day is slated for digital release October 18th
Ottawa singer-songwriter Birdie Whyte is at home on the stage with her banjo. Songwriting is Birdie’s passion
and her lovely voice lends an aching depth to the simple country lyrics she lays down. Birdie’s songs are witty, insightful and mindfully crafted, drawing the listener in and leaving them with melodic imagery that’s vividly colorful and true to the storytelling form of the folk tradition.
While Sparklesaurus is adorned by synths, sparkles, and hard-hitting rhythms, Fliss strips it all back to its core – where her spellbounding lyrics and melodies are raw and exposed. DeCarle’s songwriting is mature and measured – never does it dip into self-indulgence or musical extraneity. She is a master of analogy and concentric wordplay, and her songs often delve into the darkest depths of humanity, but always with a gentle undercurrent of sweetness and optimism. Her music is oddly intoxicating, her voice honest and lilting, drawing the listener into each song and into themselves.
