MYRIAM GENDRON (http://myriamgendron.tumblr.com/)
Montreal folk guitarist Myriam Gendron writes delicate finger style songs that seems to flow effortlessly. Acoustic guitar notes almost pluck themselves, as her voice carries overtop. Small flourishes becoming beautiful ramblings, notes roll over each other like water in a stream over rocks. Gently dancing upon one another, her guitar work ebbs and flows under humbling vocals. Gendron tells essential stories, they become living whispers embedded in the air, as she imparts their essence upon us.
SANDRO PERRI (http://www.sandroperri.com/)
One of Toronto's most interesting & inspiring composers, Sandro Perri returns to Feast In The East in duo formation with bassist Josh Cole. His pop songs are layered deep in textures and full of meanderings. Synth hums and bubbles float above carefully placed percussion like some slowed down jungle dance party. Guitar notes dissipate into hums & lost flourishes. Sandro's voice moves over the instrumentation, almost caressing it like a sheet. His music creates it's own environment, it's own weather conditions, with seamless movement, sounds & textures flow into each. Don't miss this prodigy of the avant smooth.
L CON (https://lcon.bandcamp.com/)
Lisa Conway's ever evolving project, hot off the release of "Moon Milk" dips into languid dance-y territory. Conway's vocals croon and drift over robust & buzzing synth tones, tight drum programming, and full on horn & string arrangements. Her compositions juxtapose sparse vocals and string duets against lush almost orchestral blasts. Balancing electronic & acoustic elements in her often downtroddenly soulful songs, she dances on the knife's edge. Drawing influence from western classical traditions, brooding pop music, and electro-acoustic manipulation L CON births a sound that is reminiscent of post punk infused soul tunes lost in the bleak vastness of space. Drops if glittering synthesized hope cut through her entrancing songwriting. Don't miss this!
Folk singer/songwriter Anna Horvath stretches her voice over spectral folk compositions. Her songs unfurl like spooled ribbon, running away from her in a playful chase. Horvath's voice soars piercing the sky only to drop back down to earth and meandering among her careful guitar strumming. Weaving back a forth, notes sparkle under buoyant verses, and angelic melodies.
