Joy of Life Festival weekend May 5 Alix @GooldenHall #yyjmusic

Joy of Life Festival weekend offers Juno winners and three musical thrills: Fiddle, song and jazz

VICTORIA, BC – A new combination of three unique musical experiences put together by the Victoria Conservatory of Music’s Chwyl Family School of Contemporary Music Head, Daniel Lapp offers a fresh sound sensation with a special Canadian twist on the first weekend in May.

“The challenge with celebrating Canada’s 150th and deciding to program ‘all Canadian’ content is that there is SO MUCH great Canadian music – many, many concerts worth of iconic music! Each of the 3 concerts will have a ‘Canadiana’ theme and we will traverse the country from East to West, North to South celebrating our culture in music and song,” says Daniel Lapp, the inspired brains behind the Joy of Life Festival.

The band members claim the name came when Brennan asked Drake, in a town somewhere on the BC coast, “What are the odds of us ever escaping bullshit gigs like this?” Continue reading “The Odds, Electric Timber Company @DistriktVic May 18 #yyjmusic @oddsmusic”

WOODHAWK live at @LogansPub @AsherMedia @WoodhawkRiffs #yyjmusic

Woodhawk - Beyond The Sun Logans Pub
May 6, 2017

WOODHAWK is performing in Victoria on May 6th in support of their debut LP ‘Beyond The Sun’ being released on April 7th. The album is produced by Jesse Gander (Bison, Japandroids) and also features guest vocals on their track “Living In The Sand” by Kevin Keegan (Dead Quiet, ex-Mountain Dust, ex-Barn Burner).

From the foot of the majestic Rocky Mountains comes Calgary, Alberta’s Woodhawk. Masters of straight ahead riff-rock wizardry, the power trio released an EP in 2014 and have continued forging ahead. Made of equal parts 1970s Birmingham and a myriad of 21st century heavy who’s who, Calgary trio Woodhawk are purveyors of riff-centric rock and roll. Capable and original, the band is able to craft anthemic fist-pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés. With time travel tested themes of science fiction, swords and sorcery, the band’s lyrics are born from snowy winters, hot practice spaces and pages of dog-eared paperbacks. While the musicianship reinforces recollections of Black Sabbath, modern influences that have helped you smash air drums or highway speed limits are undeniably present.
