In the hands of this powerful Toronto quintet, it’s a vessel of uplift, a call for camaraderie, an act of resistance against jaded nihilism. Though not explicitly political, the lyrics of vocalists Graham McLaughlin (guitar, violin) and Sheila Hart (keyboards) reflect the zeitgeist: addressing the anxiety of the modern age, crying out for a sense of connection, driven by a sense of carpe diem that stems from personal tragedy.

Special guests: SHYRE

SHYRE is a creative collaboration launched by Montreal-native vocalist/pianist Sarah Rossy in 2013. SHYRE mixes instrumental textures with ethereal ambiance all while taking the listener on a journey through passages of prose in a unique aesthetic. In summer 2016, SHYRE made a 3-night sold-out debut at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. The group is in pre-production for their first full-length album, set for release in October 2017.
