Adyn Townes – December 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

a magical evening …..

 

Our final show of 2018 folks and it will be awesome.  We know this because we have seen this guy perform a few times.

At the place where endings become beginnings, you’ll find Adyn Townes. Formerly Andy Brown, he turned a fall into the ocean and months of recovery into his jumping off point. His music is challenging. Alternative indie-folk with raw and honest lyrics. Like finding your feet just before you fall, his songwriting is the gravity that pulls you back to earth.

Inspired by the equal-parts hard and smooth voice of David Gray and the clear electric guitar tones of James Bay, Townes is always pushing the boundaries and seeing how close he can get to the edge.

His debut album ‘After The Fall’, produced by Colin Buchanan (Paper Lions, Sorrey) was released this summer.  It sits in the ‘favorites’ pile next to some Andy Brown cds.  His songs are just so good; I want to listen to them again and again and again…..

Join us and discover why yourself!

Adyn Townes : Saturday, December 1 @ 8 pm (doors @ 7:30 pm)

$20 at the door

BYOB.  Snacks offered (shareable snacks welcome but not necessary)

Bringing extra cash for merch (Christmas is coming and fast!) and inviting friends to come along with you are both strongly encouraged.  So is sending us a quick note to say that you are coming and how many you shall be…..it really helpful for us to have a good sense for numbers as we set up for a show, so that everyone is comfortable (and I make enough brownies).

Best,

Monique & George

Christina Martin – November 2

Don’t settle for an any old Friday evening, come round for some great live music.

We don’t host shows very often on Fridays.  But when Christina Martin calls, we say YES!

“Impossible To Hold” is Martin’s sixth and strongest studio album, achieving a perfect balance between organic ambience and impeccable production. “I’m writing about faith and love more than ever with songs like ‘Keep Me Calm’ and ‘Always Reminding’, but I haven’t shaken the need to write about the darker things that are part of our human journey”. Combining good taste, passionate singing and thoughtful lyrics, “Impossible To Hold” is where music and poetry meet.

If you missed her big cd release show at the Marquis in September, here is your chance to catch Christina & Dale before they head back to Europe where they have an ever growing fan base.

Christina Martin : Friday, November 2nd 
Showtime: 8 pm; Doors: 7:30 pm
Tickets: $25 on EventBrite:  http://christinamartin.net/tour/

BYOB.  Snacks offered.  Shareable snacks welcome.  Sharing this email with friends strongly encouraged.

Rachel Beck & Adyn Townes

If you caught either or both of these performers during ECMA week (or earlier at the Carleton), you will be as excited as we are to have them perform together in the Patchwork living room.

Rachel Beck released her debut self-titled solo record on March 2nd of this year.  On March 8, its first single Reckless Heart hit #1 on the CBC Music Top 20.  You may remember her as one-half of The Beck Sisters, with her sister Amy.  They performed together for four years, sharing the stage with Serena Ryder and Tom Cochrane.  This year, Rachel set out to forge her own musical path and her debut record delivers.

Exposed. Confessional. Connective. These are words that come to mind when listening to Beck’s seven-track debut. Produced and recorded by Daniel Ledwell at Echo Lake (Jenn Grant, David Myles, Fortunate Ones), the album lures the listener into an ethereal and enveloping soundscape, as the songs take one on a trek across a wide emotional range – from from regret and grief to wonder and joy. “… the team kept the emotion and sensitivity of the songs in full focus, which is no doubt what’s hitting home with a country full of listeners discovering Beck’s solo debut.” (Bob Mersereau, Top 100 Canadian).

At the place where endings become beginnings, you’ll find Adyn Townes. He turned a fall into the ocean and months of recovery into his jumping off point. His music is challenging. Alternative indie-folk with raw and honest lyrics. Like finding your feet just before you fall, his songwriting is the gravity that pulls you back to earth. Inspired by the equal-parts hard and smooth voice of David Gray and the clear electric guitar tones of James Bay, Townes is always pushing the boundaries and seeing how close he can get to the edge.

Currently working on a new album, produced by Colin Buchanan of Paper Lions, Townes (formerly Andy Brown) is focusing on building the foundation. Formulating floor plans and building from the ground up.  Visit the video tab on his website for a sneak peak: http://www.adyntownes.com

Here is your chance to see these two performers in our living room while you still can.  Soon they will be on the big stage……

Rachel Beck & Adyn Townes: Friday, June 8
Showtime: 8 pm; Doors: 7:30 pm
Tickets: $20 at the door; RSVP to secure your spots

The LYNNeS – Mother’s Day Matinee Show (May 13)

Beautiful harmonies…….

The LYNNeS are Juno award winning songwriter Lynn Miles and award-winning songwriter Lynne Hanson.  These two Canadian heartbreak poets are not new to working together, having toured and written songs off and on over the past 10 years, and with Miles having produced two of Hanson’s albums (River of Sand, 2014 and 7 Deadly Spins, 2015).   Both LYNNeS are multi-instrumentalists (piano, acoustic, electric guitar, mandolin), and fuse tight vocal harmonies with hauntingly gritty lyrics.  They recently released their debut album Heartbreak Song for the Radio.

I took your words 
Stumbled strummed and hummed along
Hammered till they spelled out
The world’s saddest broken hearted song
 
– Heartbreak Song For The Radio – The LYNNeS 

The duo adopted an old school approach to recording their album, choosing to record to tape and recording all the bed tracks and many of the vocal and acoustic guitar parts live off the floor.  Each song on the album is a co-write, producing a truly collaborative effort, drawing on the strengths of two Lynn(e), to create a sum greater than two individual parts.

I’m tired of falling for cowboys in the dark 
I’m tired of giving away my heart
Of walking a line that’s always shifting
Being the hero and doing all the heavy lifting
 
– Heavy Lifting – The LYNNeS 

“[the album] has the kind of spacious, rolling thunder restlessness Bob Dylan attained with Daniel Lanois all those years ago. It’s that good.”  5 stars – Jeff Monk | Winnipeg Free Press 

“Individually, both Lynnes are formidable forces in contemporary country, together they just might be unstoppable.” – Mike Davies | folking.com (UK)

http://www.thelynnes.com

This is a rare opportunity to see these women perform together in an intimate setting.  Treat your mom or yourself and join us for The LYNNeS on Sunday, May 13 at 3 pm.  Tickets $25 at the door.  RSVP to hold your seat  mleblanc.patchwork@gmail.com.

BYOB.  Snacks offered and shareable shacks welcome.  Bringing friends encouraged.

Best,                                                                                                                                               Monique & George                                                                                                               Patchwork House Concerts                                                                                                           First Ave., Bedford
