JACK CONNOLLY: For Jack Connolly, it's all about the song. His latest album, Great Big Soul is the songwriter's most diverse and sonically rich material yet. "Lock Your Doors" mixes a breezy folk/country gallop with a hint of melodic darkness, while the dobro-laced "You Without Your Makeup On" is simply and unmistakably in the vein of the Canadian singer/songwriter, and the folk-rock cinematics of "Anyone Who Wishes Prays" complement its poignant spiritual commentary. The full-bodied arrangements are all in service of the singer's stories, which blend autobiographical emotions with insight and convey his knack for finding the extraordinary in everyday events.
DYLAN HENNESSY: Dylan Hennessy is a Torontonian singer/songwriter who's passion for the art has lead him to pursue music as a career. As a graduate of Seneca College's "Independent Music Production" program and intern at “Music Mentor Productions”, he is a versatile musician, spanning an array of instruments in a variety of genres, with his show consisting of a combination of thoughtful ballads and "Progressive Singer/Songwriter" music. Dylan has played some of Toronto's most competitive stages, including both independently organized showcases and festival performances, including advancing to the semi-finals in Indie Week 2014 as well as showcasing at NXNE 2014. Dylan incorporates many styles and influences into his creations, with elements of soul, folk, metal, and unconventional guitar playing. His Debut 6-song EP was released November 16th 2013, and he's planning have his sophomore release available by the end of 2015. You can find additional material on his YouTube page.
CALUM GRAHAM: At just 23, Calum Graham has already enjoyed a career that would be the envy of most artists double his age. The Alberta-based guitarist and singer/songwriter has released four acclaimed albums, won major national music competitions, performed at the Olympic Games in both Vancouver and London, racked up some phenomenal views on YouTube, and was most recently named one of the top 30 guitarists in the world under 30 by Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Andy McKee, one of today’s most popular acoustic guitarists, calls Calum “the most promising young guitarist I’ve seen. His command of the guitar is already really impressive!”
This will be ALL AGES, with doors opening at 7:00 and the show beginning at 7:30 SHARP. $10 cover. Plenty of surprises are in store for this one, it's seriously going to be one of the best Acoustic Addiction showcases ever put together!
