An evening of song from five of Vancouver's finest makers. 

Capo Nero 
Steady Folk-Rock with a mediterranean breeze: Capo Nero is a new duo comprising of Nicki Carbonneau and Marina Benitez Lazzarotto. 

Emily Best
Emily Best is a musician from Vancouver, BC. With a background in jazz piano and classical voice, her compositions are a confluence of dreamy contemporary soul, avant-pop and folk-rock. Her songwriting openly explores the human condition with simplistic lyricism and occasionally complex harmonic textures that unite to underline a raw authenticity present in her work. 

Lajla Jean
Lajla Jean (Ly-la) is a Yellowknife born singer songwriter, living in Vancouver BC. Her music been described as light and enchanting. She draws inspiration from an array of different artists, genres, and her especially her dreams, producing the emotional and whimsical tone that is her songs. She is a creative idealist, truly depicted through her lyrics and her warm and endearing voice. She has a bubbly and captivating stage presences thats is inviting. It surly extends to her listeners, taking them away on a journey through the liminal spaces of her mind.

Laura Reznek
Crafted from jazz and folk traditions and contemporary genre blends, Laura’s music is characterized by dusky, ethereal vocals, and the bold instrumentation of downtempo cabaret pop. Her lyrics draw on history, memory, and philosophy, and they sing of a tangled internal world, and the things that keep us up at night—storms and cityscapes, guilt and ghosts.

If folk music is “all the music that fits between the cracks”, then ursidae springs forth from the lush, dark soil that lives between rocks and sidewalk squares. ursidae is the alternative-folk expression of Vancouver musician Carolyn Deady. Tapped into tradition, and stirred by the indie folk stylings of Daughter, Bon Iver, and Sharon Van Etten, ursidae gives voice to her own stories in her newest release, almost//closer, an EP steeped in dusky blues and the salty waters of lonely love. Tender and whimsical, honest and fierce, ursidae takes listeners on a journey through dreamscapes and back alleys—all the while reminding us that there’s beauty in sadness, that we should savour the emotions that make us oh-so-hopelessly human.
