FEATURED EVENTS IN VANCOUVER
A Future for Memory: Art and Life After the Great East Japan Earthquake, February 11 to September 5, 2021
Vancouverites who are missing the energy that only comes from a live music experience can look forward to Live from Inside presented by Jim Beam Bourbon.
The series highlights live shows broadcast from popular music venues across Canada, allowing attendees to enjoy multi-camera performances with concert-quality audio and crisp visuals right from the comfort of home.
On Thursday, January 14, Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Award nominees JoJo Mason, Shawn Austin, and special guest Kristin Carter will be performing live from the Commodore Ballroom on Granville Street.
BC-based, two-time CCMA Rising Star Award nominee Mason has five top 10 tracks under his belt. In 2019, his sophomore EP Chapter Two included fan favourite “Future,” a song that became his highest streamed track to date.
The star’s most recent EP Changes sees him blend county music with a touch of soul. Renowned for showcasing the relatable layers of relationships through his incredible vocals and vibrant personality, Mason’s performance is a must-watch.
Attendees of the virtual event can also look forward to hearing the magnetic vocals and honest lyricism of Vancouver singer-songwriter, CCMA nominee, and presenter Austin. With his laid-back vibe, the star is often compared to a hybrid of Brett Eldridge and John Mayer.
Austin became a finalist on season two of NBC’s Songland original songwriting contest, pitching country superstars Florida Georgia Line in the ground-breaking series.
The special guest at Vancouver’s upcoming Live from Inside showcase is choir girl turned country music sensation Carter.
Born and raised in White Rock, she grew up listening to the music of Faith Hill, Shania Twain, The Dixie Chicks, and Beyoncé. Today, Carter’s stage presence and vocals empower the audiences she performs before.
