David Simard

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre
Sunday September 18, 2016 – 7:00 PM

With supporting local artist: Trevor Davis (of Silver Hearts)

David Simard comes to Market Hall Performing Arts Centre with a four piece band to celebrate the release of his sophomore full-length, The Heavy Wait.

Born in a small fishing village in northern British Columbia, David Simard has always imbued his work with a sense of space and a hint of nostalgia. Simard’s arrangements evoke the landscapes he’s studied and lived in, while his lyrics intimately relate the stories of characters met and imagined, along with more than a few of his own experiences.

The lyrical and musical makeup of The Heavy Wait is an effortless combination of gilded European elegance and small-town noir. Simard and his band recorded most of the album in a charged, live-off-the-floor session in Arcade Fire’s old “Petite Eglise” studio. They dug in hard and deep to produce a quiet intensity so palpable and persistent that the album builds in strength with each passing track. Waves of horns and lap steel guitar, sparsely placed piano, and haunting clarinet lines recorded later in Paris and Vancouver rush to complement the live performances. “The Heavy Wait” was the band’s chosen mantra during that first session and it persisted until the final note was captured.

Philip Sayce

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre
Thursday November 17, 2016 – 8:00 PM

Influence is an apt title for an album from arguably the most underheralded guitar hero on the circuit. Philip Sayce, the Welsh born axe hero, came of age in Toronto, Canada during the 90s and was weaned on such guitar heroes as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Healey and Mark Knopfler. I have such distinct memories listening to these incredible musicians, Sayce says. Their music had a huge effect on me.

Hence, the title Influence. Sayce knocks it out of the park with an array of visceral covers and inspired originals. The blues guitar whiz is wise enough to realize that it doesn’t matter if you’re an interpreter or a writer, its about delivering a song that’s going to sear the listeners brain. You want to make some sort of emotional connection, Sayce says. The charismatic Sayce is a throwback. That’s evident after a spin of Influence.

Special offer! A digital download of Philip Sayce’s forthcoming album, Scorched Earth: Volume 1, is included with every ticket you order for this show. You will receive an email with instructions on how to receive your download following your ticket purchase.

Séan McCann seanmcannsmall

Saturday November 26, 2016 – 8:00 PM

Séan McCann’s love for Newfoundland and Labrador folk songs shot him to international fame as a founding member of the renowned group Great Big Sea. After millions of albums sold, countless hit songs, and record breaking tours around the world, Séan realized that his 20 years with the band had to stop. Music is meant to connect, heal, and bring happiness. While Séan was giving that to thousands of people a night he was slowly losing his own way. Instead of seeking truth he was hiding behind his music. This was unfair to both himself and his fans so he left the band and started over.

In January 2014 Séan released his first post-GBS album. Produced by Joel Plaskett, “Help Your Self” is the sound of a man facing his demons and ultimately overcoming them. The songs helped him deal with his issues of addiction and abuse and showed him how to find strength in pain. It reminded him of the power of music which at one time would have been used to cast a Friday night spell over a sold out hockey arena on a Monday, but now finds him touring the country as a solo artist in intimate venues where he can sincerely connect with his audience in the way he always hoped to—face to face. Séan has also found himself using music as therapy, working with people who face physical, mental, and addiction challenges, and has become a sought after speaker trying to help others to help themselves find light through the darkness.

Séan’s journey to find his own peace, love, and happiness continues through his new music. “You Know I Love You” is a happy collection of songs sung by a man intent on sharing his joy directly with you. The world has changed. Today the only thing left between Séan’s music and those who wish to share it is a cellphone. Despite how small social media has made the world, and how it has included all of us into the same conversation with a simple hashtag #, the basic human quest for a connection to something real is too difficult to fit in just 140 characters. Luckily, through the years of technological advancement and subsequent social change, two universal energies remain constant— Music and Love.

Craig Cardiff

Presented by Market Hall Performing Arts Centre
Thursday December 8, 2016 – 8:00 PM

With a voice described as “warm, scratched, sad and sleepy,” Cardiff sings songs that expose the human condition, putting a magnifying glass to the clumsier and less proud moments. He can turn any setting into an intimate affair, infusing his music and lyrics with an uncompromising humanism.

Cardiff makes it a point to keep the relationship with his fans personal, inviting and accepting any opportunity to make his audience as much a part of the performance as he is.

LeE HARVeY OsMOND leeharveyosmondsmall

Thursday January 19, 2017 – 8:00 PM

There’s so much creative energy coursing through Lee Harvey Osmond’s veins, he can’t contain it all in one form of expression — or even one identity. Which is why the Hamilton, Ontario, man known as Tom Wilson has forged an alter-ego from a pop-culture mash-up of JFK’s killer and the famed family of singing Mormons. That’s in addition to his identification since the ‘90s as a member of now-defunct Canadian rock band Junkhouse and the very-much-alive Americana entity of Blackie & the Rodeo Kings.

Wilson has used the Osmond moniker for three solo albums, including his 2015 Latent Recordings release Beautiful Scars, produced by the Cowboy Junkies’ Michael Timmins. The songs on Beautiful Scars take more zigs and zags than a stitch job on a bad cut. Aaron Goldstein’s crying pedal steel might segue into Michael Davidson’s cool vibraphone notes or harmonies by Andrea Ramolo, who duets with Wilson on the beguiling, yet melancholy “Hey Hey Hey.” “Shake the Hand” echoes with funk and twang, while the fluttery flute groove brass/woodwind player Darcy Hepner blows in “Black Spruce” sounds as if it could have flown out of Creed Taylor’s ‘70s CTI jazz catalog. The delicate “Dreams Come and Go” casts a glow on Wilson’s rich, unvarnished baritone and accomplished picking, not to mention the potential of his co-writer and harmony vocalist, son Thompson. (He’s also heard on “Planet Love.”) On the creepy, haunting — and quite compelling — “Oh, the Gods,” Wilson’s whispers combine with drum rhythms, keyboard twiddles, electric guitar notes and other sonic effects to achieve an almost meditative drone.
