**** ABOUT THE ARTISTS ****
LUKA is nylon string poet-crooner Luke Kuplowsky and his gentle rock n’ rollers. In their first two albums, Calling All Cats Black (2013), and Summon Up a Monkey King (2016), Kuplowsky has developed a vocal and lyrical style of opposites: deadpan spoken-word delivery transitions into a rich melodic tenor; poetic musings fall alongside conversational and plain-spoken observations. His latest work What Kind of Animal (2017) was recorded live in a single session and showcases eight poetic works that unravel questions of self-doubt, companionship, integrity and faith amidst sonic extremes of patient stillness and careening noise.
DAN EDMONDS (toronto)
After releasing his critically acclaimed debut album, Ladies On The Corner, over a year ago, Dan Edmonds toured extensively and built a reputation for being one of this country’s unique young voices and musical talents. Dan has just finished working on his following up album, that was co-produced by Graham Walsh of Holy Fuck. It will be released later in 2019.
Piner is a local artist from Kingston. Although she is a young artist, she is an old soul. Growing up Piner was surrounded by musicians who taught her to write her feelings and thoughts on paper and sing them aloud for anyone who cared to listen. One of Piner’s inspirations is her neighbourhood. Growing up in the environs of Skeleton Park she experienced the wealth that comes from community while witnessing the reality of struggle. Piner writes songs that let her empathy and understanding take over, by stepping into the stories of others. Piner released her debut album called ‘The Breaking Point’ in July 2018 which has received recognition by Dominionated, an independent Canadian Music blog. The author Mac Cameron writes that “The Breaking Point is a display of pure confidence and vulnerability.”
