Ben Somer is a gifted songwriter with a knack for storytelling. His works are painstakingly candid snap-shots of the day-to-day which bring to mind the great songwriters of a bygone era. Armed with a razor-sharp wit and a gift for brevity, Somer crafts beautifully compelling songs that are as heartbreaking as they are tongue-in-cheek. His music has travelled across the country via radio, television, internet, and relentless touring. Part of a new generation of artists carrying on the Great Canadian Songwriting Tradition, Ben has performed hundreds of concerts ranging from intimate living room shows - playing to a handful of attentive listeners - to larger music festivals where he’s shared the stage with world-class artists. The future looks promising for the young musician, who has already garnered critical acclaim, and with a third studio album forthcoming it seems that Somer is well on his way to joining the ranks of Canada’s songwriting elite

Wired To The Sky is the ever-evolving solo project of Canadian songwriter, Dylan Perkons. After relocating from Montreal to the West Coast he began performing new material, frequently collaborating with a rotating cast of Vancouver Island musicians. In late 2016 the band entered the studio to record their debut album, produced by Juno Award-winner Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde). The upcoming 2017 release, titled Steady Sparrow, Steady Flight finds Perkons' residing comfortably in a post-Americana landscape. Though his dusty baritone remains at the front and center of the album, the dynamic arrangements carry the listener through the songs. The album features contributions from Pat McTaggart, Dave Thompson, Kathryn Calder, Laura Mitic, Marc Jenkins, Nevada Brown, Michael Lewis and Megan McCaffrey. Swaying between colorful indie folk and eerie country-noir, the music compliments the earnest writing woven throughout the songs.
