Glowing with catchy pop hooks, Rachel Beck’s distinctive piano melodies and emotive vocals are captivating audiences across Canada. The PEI songbird’s first single, Reckless Heart, hit #1 on the CBC Music Top 20 in March 2018 after earning the most online votes for six weeks straight. Beck’s stunning debut, produced by Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant, David Myles), lures the listener into an ethereal and enveloping soundscape, as the songs take one on a trek across a wide emotional range – from regret and grief to wonder and joy.
With Special Guests Evangeline Gentle & Kelsey Hayes
The stunning vibrato, richness, and depth of Evangeline Gentle’s mighty voice is reminiscent of the vocal greats of soul and folk. Her songs draw inspiration from the pop and folk triumphs of the late 20th century. Queer, and passionate about acceptance for all, Evangeline appraises the remarkable resilience of love and writes music with her findings. Viewers are charmed by Evangeline’s effortless ability to enthrall an audience at only 22 years old. Born on the Northeast coast of Scotland, Evangeline’s family lineage tells all. A descendent of the Cadona Circus family, Evangeline Gentle is, by blood, no stranger to the stage and was given an unequivocal name for it too. Awarded Emerging Artist at the 2015 Peterborough Folk Fest, Best Female Vocalist of the year at the 2015 Wire Awards and opening artist for notable names such as Basia Bulat, Craig Cardiff, Matt Andersen, and Terra Lightfoot, Evangeline’s astounding debut album will halt and marvel it’s listeners. Evangeline lives in Peterborough, Ontario where by day she works in a small hair salon, and by night, makes music with her band.
Writing from a position of strength and independence, Kelsey Hayes is an Ottawa based pop, singer-songwriter who takes the listener on a journey of love, longing, and betrayal. She released her debut EP to a sold-out crowd at Ottawa’s own Mercury Lounge in Fall 2015, going on to win the Musik Ottawa Competition. In 2016, Kelsey made her international debut, touring multiple cities in China between playing shows at Ottawa's Bluesfest and Cityfolk Festival. Her most recent project was released on February 8th 2018 with her song “Is It Like That” winning the Performance category of the Canadian Songwriting Competition.
