Vinyl Envy presents an intimate evening of in-store music with the talented:
Greg Ashley (Oakland, California)
Texas-born singer/multi-instrumentalist Greg Ashley has been a fixture on the underground music scene since the late nineties. Since then he’s proven himself not only as a songwriter, singer and guitar player in bands like The Mirrors & The Gris Gris, but also as a producer/sound engineer via his Oakland-based Creamery Studio.
His career as a solo artist is vast & varied, spanning the gamut between fried & beautiful psychedelia, gorgeous & cathartic symphonic suites & gentle, damaged folk music, beginning with 2003’s “Medicine Fuck Dream” & last leaving us with 2014’s “Another Generation of Slaves”. His latest, “Pictures of Saint Paul Street” carries forward that album’s musical palette (a rootsy amalgam of tortured, Cohen-esque folk tinged with the beer soaked recklessness of a West Texas honky-tonk).
with Dylan Rysstad (Victoria, BC)
Local elusive singer-songwriter Dylan Rysstad has done numerous North American tours, solo and with a band, and more recently, Europe (with ISOTOPES Punk Rock Baseball Club). His band The Mandlebaums has rocked the record store before and rattled the windows!
As a solo artist he's opened for Corb Lund, Chilliwack, April Wine; and owes Bob Dylan $1800. Some of the bands he plays in, or has played in, are: The Mandlebaums, Isotopes Punk Rock Baseball Club, The Ramores, and The Jolts.
