Side-Eye and Grace

Side-Eye and Grace at LIVE! on Elgin
With Special Guest Alex Moxon

Side-Eye and Grace:
Side-Eye & Grace is an Ottawa-based chamber-jazz outfit. Their sound is a melting-pot of influences ranging from Maurice Ravel and late Romanticism through to modal jazz, east-coast fiddle music, and the avante-garde. Their lineup includes Garrett Warner and Kyle Jordan on guitars, Chris Pond on bass, and Erik Johnson-Scherger on the violin.

Alex Moxon:
Guitarist Alex Moxon has been a familiar face on the Ottawa jazz scene for more than a decade. The Ottawa-raised musician has spent this time refining his artistic voice while performing with a who's who of local and national talent, including Kellylee Evans, HILOTRONS, Miguel De Armas, Roddy Ellias, Shawnee, Iskwē, Michael Greilsammer, Petr Cancura, SOCALLED, and the National Arts Centre Orchestra. He has opened for Brian Charette, Bernie Worrell, and Brian Blade. An up and comer on the world jazz stage, his debut record as a leader, “Alex Moxon Quartet” has received international radio airplay and stellar reviews. On Moxon's first record, Peter Hum of The Ottawa Citizen says "[Moxon] blends shards of the blues, modal motifs and flashes of guitar wizardry." Says Raul De Gama of The Whole Note, "Moxon is a shining example of what true musicality means." "Overall, Alex Moxon Quartet delivers an experience that uplifts and excites listeners as it leads them along a path of varying emotional landscapes... Let it be an antidote for gloom and despair, and a reminder that the future will be a wonderful place," says James Hale of Downbeat.
