Bozzini’s final show of the year will be a perfect evening of music for a cool December night.
Featuring two artists who’s musical sensibilities are similar yet differ — Nashville’s Ben de la Cour and his Americana folk noir music meets East Vancouver’s Shiloh Lindsey and her open country tunes.
Not only will this be both artist’s Chilliwack debuts, it will be de la Cour’s first and only performance in Canada to date.
De la Cour’s Americanoir features a uniquely modern, haunting and darkly humorous sound that is all his own. Songs filled with tales of substance abuse, murder and mental illness sit in perfect juxtaposition with playful lightheartedness and an ever-present glimmer of hope.
Seasoned songwriter and storyteller, Shiloh Lindsey, is a most unique character in Canadian music. Hard-raised on a ranch in south central Alberta, based for many years out of Vancouver, and most recently returned from a residence in Halifax, she pairs open country authenticity with big city sensibilities, for a complex blend of prairie, mountain and coastal textures. Painstakingly documenting the triumphs and failures of life and love, her honest words and spine-tingling melodies pull the listener in close to rest their ears against the comforting heartbeat of each song she sings.
Ben de la Cour and Shiloh Lindsey perform at Bozzini’s Upstairs Lounge Friday, Dec. 2. Doors at 8 p.m., show at 9 p.m. Tickets $15 at Bozzini’s or call 604-792-0744 to reserve by phone.
