Air Stranger with special guests Belcarra, Slevyn and Prepurity
Air Stranger (Vancouver) // https://www.airstranger.com/
Air Stranger is a group whose musical style emerges from the conjunction of funk and progressive rock. It is at this unique crossroads where the band synthesizes their seemingly disparate influences, merging the technical intricacies of Victor Wooten and Guthrie Govan with the harmonic progressions of John Coltrane and Danny Elfman. They then superimpose these concepts over the backdrop of contagious grooves reminiscent of James Brown and Rage Against the Machine.
Seb Chamney contributes solos of virtuosic flare and progressions of harmonic boldness. Our vocalist Sophie Rischar enraptures audiences with her emotional and powerful voice and her unique vocal rasp a-la Janis Joplin. The grooves and backdrop provided by brothers Eric and Colin Sankey govern the rhythmic direction of the piece, grounding the musicians playing over them, whilst compelling the audience to incessantly tap their feet.
Air Stranger's ultimate goal is to merge a variety of musical idioms whilst delivering keen lyrical insight. Just be careful when you listen to them, because you never know when the Thought Police might be listening.
BELCARRA (Vancouver) //
Belcarra is an Indie Rock band hailing from Vancouver BC. Formed in the Fall of 2016 by solo singer-songwriter Jaron Chidiac, members Roan Wallace, Ricardo Germaine and Adrian Fitzpatrick draw on a variety of musical talent and experience. As previous session musicians, producers, and writers, all four members bring an excellent focus, and professional work ethic to the project.
As a result of their hard work and dedication, Beclarra - after only being a band for one year - has seen great sucess in the local music scene. Belcarra have been featured in the top four in "The Best of Vancouver" Music competition, and recently tied for first place in the "Sham Rocks" music festival. Belcarra's live performances have been called passionate and energetic. This recently drew the attention of local upcoming producer Matt Di Pomponio. Over the past year Belcarra worked with Di Pomponio to release their debut EP - "Hollow Tree" - completed in the fall of 2017. The EP was recorded near Belcarra National Park at Echo Plant Sound Studios in Port Coquitlam.
Upon release of "Hollow Tree" Belcarra is planning small spring tours and more local shows in the Vancouver area.
