Inspired by uniquely popular artist’s ranging from Oasis to Mumford and Sons, GC plans to take over the world; one city at a time.
Jackson Reed: 9:30
Jackson Reed is a singer-songwriter and guitar player from Toronto, Canada. His songs are nostalgia, and when you hear them yer struck by reminders of elsewheres and befores, of summer’s past, and of love’s come & gone the same way. They send you somewhere but you can’t ever tell where exactly: maybe it’s the sounds of 1968 and yer in Chicago or Buffalo or Detroit; maybe it’s the sounds of up north and it’s winter or it’s Wednesday or it’s yesterday afternoon.
Maybe it’s all of them and maybe it’s none but it doesn’t matter, cuz what yer really hearing, after you go where you go and come back, is the sound of someone here and now: it is sometimes sunshine and sometimes rain, it is happy and it is sad, but it is Jackson Reed.
Inna Powell: 10:00
Inna Powell is a Toronto-based indie rock/alt-folk artist whose intense and engrossing performances contrast their anxious and soft-spoken offstage persona. While the songwriting is grounded in traditional folk arrangements, Powell fuses diverse influences – ranging from spoken word and bluegrass to hip-hop and emo – to present a unique musical soundtrack that varies from one composition to the next. Despite the shifting sound, one component remains constant: Inna Powell’s distinct, poignant vocals, which shift from quiet, warbled murmurs to intense, delivering visceral, vivid and intimate lyrics, reflecting Powell’s background in poetry. In addition to showcasing his controlled, impassioned voice, Powell’s impressive musical dexterity is on full display as he swaps between electric guitar, banjo and harmonica. Inna Powell released their debut EP, The Vanishing Act, June 10th and can be found playing shows in and around the Toronto area.
