Joey Wright with Brownstone & Jenny Whiteley in concert!

Joey was one of the leading lights in the explosive bluegrass, old time and traditional country scene in Toronto in the late 90’s. Joey joined Jenny Whiteley’s band in 1999, and their first two albums (Jenny Whiteley & Hopetown) both won Juno awards for Best Roots Traditional Album.

In 2005 Joey joined Sarah Harmer’s band to record the album I’m A Mountain which earned him a gold record. In 2007 Joey collaborated with Jesse Zubot, Steve Dawson, Dan Whiteley and Joe Phillips to create his own album, Jalopy. Jalopy received a Juno nomination for Best Instrumental Album. The album Hatch followed in 2010 with 2017’s Country, Music just out.

The album explores new sounds combining pedal steel, beautiful brass, and angelic harmonies with creative textures, focused writing and inventive composition and includes Amy Millan and members of Montreal’s Stars, Evening Hymns, Christine Bougie , Aaron Comeau and Jenny Whiteley.

Blues on the Rideau : Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar

Ever since this band’s debut release “Send The Nightingale” came out in 2015 garnering 4 Maple Blues Award nominations and major national and international attention we’ve wanted to have them come to play BOTR. Samantha’s dynamic Blues/Soul/Gospel voice has been further enhanced in Delta Sugar by two great femaie co-singers – Sherie Marshall and Mwansa Mwansa with a full rhythm section behind them lead by guitarist Michael McCallum.

The band consists of 6 to 11 players depending on the venue. Their latest record “”Run To Me” released in April 2018 took an even larger leap forward involving a number of Canada’s best Roots/Blues/Soul artists including special guests Steve Marriner of MonkeyJunk fame and Suzie Vinnick.

Nolan Hubbard at the Cove Inn!

 

Nolan Hubbard boldly emerges as vocalist, guitarist and composer of evocative acoustic-pop masterpieces with the forthcoming release of his debut album and his moving and memorable lead-off single Today.

The album was recorded in Nashville alongside top session players, and was produced by Canadian industry veteran Douglas Romanow. The time spent in Music City USA proved to be edifying and encouraging for Hubbard, as he felt both in awe of the surroundings but also emboldened by the experience – awed by the significance of being one of the mecca’s of the music business, but also emboldened because he came to realize that he had what it took as a songwriter and player to hang with some of the world’s best.

Born and raised in the small eastern Ontario community of Gananoque, just east of Kingston, Hubbard grew up in a home immersed in music, particularly what might be called the modern Great Canadian Songbook.

Hubbard got his first guitar at age 11, taking to the instrument with a dedication and obvious ability and quickly becoming a self-taught prodigy. By 17, his tastes had begun to change as he became more artistically confident and adventurous, expanding his repertoire into a more acoustic style. At the same time, he started to experiment with singing along to his playing, revealing a voice that was surprisingly soulful, impactful and one that made people listen intently. He knew immediately he wanted to be able to move people with just a guitar, his voice and his songs.

The song Sandbanks is an affectionate ode to a popular beach area in Prince Edward County in Ontario, but Hubbard said it could apply to any place that evokes warm, wonderful affectionate memories.

This album is a game changer for Hubbard, as he’s stepped out with a confident and strong debut – a collection of songs that are accessible, compelling and which wind their way into people’s souls. It’s a record that will undoubtedly make music lovers, cultural tastemakers and the music industry feel good about the future of popular music in Canada.
