Vinyl Envy is proud to present another live show in-store featuring the talented:
Steph Macpherson (Victoria, BC)
Victoria’s Steph Macpherson’s debut folk-pop EP, “To You” showcased an ear for melody, and a knack for honest words and powerful lyricism that was dominated by acoustic guitars and rich harmonies. Her new album, “Bells & Whistles” picks up where “To You” left off, establishing Macpherson as one of Canada’s up-and-coming singer-songwriters.
She has performed at events such as Lilith Fair, CIMA/Canadian Blast in Los Angeles, Canadian Music Week, Rifflandia Festival, BreakOut West, Blue Sky Festival, SHOREfest, Pop Okanagan, 100.5FM The Peak Performance Project Top 20 and Main Stage of both Tall Tree Festival and the Legislature Lawns in Victoria for Canada Day. Her music can also be heard on many radio stations around Canada.
This Western Canadian Music Award nominee has been fortunate to share the stage with the likes of Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, Sugarland, Tom Cochrane, Colin James as well as opening for Don Mclean, Men Without Hats, Hannah Georgas, Jon and Roy, Jesse Winchester, Leeroy Stagger, Yukon Blonde, Aidan Knight, Vince Vaccaro, and Jeremy Fisher.
"Macpherson’s voice is clear, well-trained and hauntingly beautiful, and her vocal melodies are deadly infectious". - BC Musician Magazine
"The one thing that can be said about Steph Macpherson’s music with certitude is that, hands down, it is absolutely beautiful" - Canadian Music Blog
BoneHoof (Solo Set!) [Victoria, BC]
Bonehoof (the pseudonym of singer-songwriter Chris Lloyd) has a sound and writing approach reflective of early exposure to both classic folk and blues music. Shaped by the likes of John Martyn, Richard Thompson and John Fahey, yet it's clear his influence and cross-genre appreciation for music runs deep and transcends many decades.
Throwing any effects out the window, he runs straight into an old tube amp with a ’59 Harmony Stratotone; a true companion that supports both his meandering finger-picking and hypnotic experiments with reverberation.
The Dylan Rysstad Band (Victoria, BC)
Dylan Rysstad is a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer currently living in Victoria, BC. Radio Silence, his 8th album for Sakamano Records, was released summer 2017 and features a who's-who of Victoria talent: Dylan Stone, Gord Light, Ray Mohr, and Evan Matthiesen.
