Live Music Featuring:

Distance A. Bullock

"Distance Bullock is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Calgary Alberta. Looping his voice and any number of instruments in his live performances he paints a rolling landscape with his sound that captures the imagination. The music grows and blooms pulsing with life. His voice can be furious and melancholy often at the same time with lyrics that evoke feelings of longing while leaving the listener plenty of room to fill in the blanks or read between the lines".

Amy Carson Hunter

Amy Carson Hunter, folk-pop musician from Toronto, may still be relatively green to the Canadian music scene, but this scotch-scarred songstress doesn’t have the same wide-eyed naivety as most developing artists. “Amy writes as if she’s been doing it for fifteen years,” explains singer-songwriter Richard Garvey, though in reality she’s only been at it for about four years—and what an impressive four years they have been, too.

Amy has shared bills with acts such as Juno award-winner Cara Luft, and Juno-nominees Craig Cardiff and Sarah Slean, as well as Kevin Drew (of Broken Social Scene), to name a few. In 2012 alone, Amy played her way across Canada with shows from Toronto, ON to Victoria, BC, and played many festivals, including NXNE (Toronto), the Beaches International Jazz Festival (Toronto), and SummerFolk (Owen Sound).

Hunter’s debut studio EP, “Call Me the Wind” (May 2013) is a small collection of songs that reflect on the theme of moving forward. In collaborating with Grammy award-winning producer Dalton “D10” Tennant (Drake), Hunter’s songs find their inner playfulness, exposing the pop in her song writing while still showcasing her soft, yet incredibly soulful vocals and poetry-driven compositions.

Spoken Word Poet:

Wakefield Brewster

Performing in a musical capacity since age 6 and writing for the past 20 years, Wakefield Brewster, aka: ‘da lyrical pitbull’, has made his dynamic presence on the scene with no uncertain terms. Writing in a political and lyrical voice and performing with audaciousness yet unseen, he has blasted onto nearly 1300 stages in the past 13 years.
His poetry is in print and online, not to mention that he performs prolifically, rotating between open mics, feature performances, fundraisers, workshops, political functions and multimedia exhibitions. Since relocating to Calgary from Toronto, Wakefield has enjoyed success with having his words broadcast on two local radio stations, CJSW 90.0FM for example, competing in Calgary Poetry Slams, performing for Reading Series’ such as ‘Single Onion Reading Series’ featuring with award winning Canadian poet and professor, Christian Bok, volunteered at the ‘Calgary Centre for Newcomers’ and has been visiting schools with students of all ages, bringing his brand of lyricism to their attention and spreading his message that “poetry is not boring.”
Wakefield Brewster's passion for poetry and excellent performance delivery will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more.
