web windmills copyStreaming Cafe is proud to present Windmills for the release of his new album “Measures” with special guest Andrew Judah

Show at 8pm – Doors at 7pm

SOLD OUT

Windmills is the moniker of genre-bending experimental ambient-indie loop artist, Cory Myraas.Since 2011, he has released two records, his debut, FACTOR funded LP,Keep Moving (2012), and 2013’s follow-up EP, Tilting. Both have been well received in Canada and internationally, from the US, Europe, Asia, and many countries in between. Perhaps most importantly, there’s evolution between the two releases with the Windmills sound progressing and his song-writing becoming stronger and more mature.

2014 saw the release of “Face To A Name” via Indie Shuffle, the first single from upcoming LP Measures, to be released in October 14, 2015.

The Bros. Landreth
http://www.thebroslandreth.com/
The Bros. Landreth earned their first JUNO for their debut, Let It Lie, which won for Roots Traditional Album of the Year in the group category. The band has been on a hot streak, signing with U.S. label Slate Creek Records, winning a Canadian Folk Music Award for best new act, launching a video on CMT, and garnering accolades from international media, including a spot on Rolling Stone’s list of country artist to watch at SXSW

“Leave it to a group of Canadians to dish up some of the best Southern-style blues we wolfed down all weekend. …a quiet storm of slide guitar solos, blue notes, three-part harmonies…” Rolling Stone: 20 Best Things We Saw at Americana Music Fest 2014

Donovan Woods
http://www.donovanwoods.net/
With a voice as notable as his lyrics, Donovan Woods is a critically acclaimed and in-demand Canadian recording artist, performer and songwriter. His third record, “Don’t Get Too Grand”, featuring the hit single “Put On Cologne” garnered radio airplay around the world, and was nominated for “Roots & Traditional Album of the Year” at the 2014 Juno Awards. Splitting his time between Nashville and Toronto, Woods’ versatile songs have been recorded by everyone from Canadian indie artists to established stars like Tim McGraw or Alan Doyle (Great Big Sea), and been featured in television shows, major motion pictures and commercials. Piercingly honest and quietly anthemic, Woods sings with a striking sense of the world that produced him – the unsung towns of Canada’s industrial heartland. The result is music that’s transporting, but never loses the dry, self-deprecating humour that has endeared Woods to audiences from the start.

dannyvan

Life’s too short not to tour Canada in a vintage 1978 Star Trek Van, right? So that’s exactly what Danny Michel be doing this June. Before recording a new album Danny thought he’d hit the road and test drive any new songs in front of some live audiences. But that’s not all. Along the way he’ll also begin filming a music show called “Dan’s Space Van” that will become a free webcast in the following months. The show will feature and interview musical guests across Canada. Of course, they’ll also perform IN the van. We’ve already lined up a bunch of familiar faces. He also tracked down the artist that airbrushed this gem in 1980. We’ll definitely stop and visit him too. Think of it as a mobile version of our “School Night Mondays” shows…it just happens to take place in a Star Trek-themed van”.

danny michel SOLD OUTWith two Juno nominations and six solo albums to his credit, Danny Michel is one of the finest and most charming songwriters to grace the stage. His honest and straight-forward lyrics, earnest live performances and witty stage banter have earned him a devoted global fan base. If you’ve seen Danny live in concert, you’re probably already a fan. If you haven’t, you are missing out on one of this country’s undiscovered musical treasures” (Toronto Star).

Featured Visual Artist of the Month: Hayley Stewart

887322_744680032217344_1065850448_o-135x135

We are so happy to have the amazing works of Hayley Stewart on our walls for the months of March & April. Come down and take them in and join Hayley and local folk duo Tiger Moon on Wednesday, March 4th for the art opening.

More about Hayley Stewart:
Originally from Ontario, Hayley studied fine art at the Ontario College of Art & Design. Toronto’s culturally rich metropolis, although inexhaustibly energetic, left a void in her style. She migrated west lured first by the ocean to Tofino and later by the mountains to Golden, British Colombia. In these flourishing landscapes, Hayley developed a voice synchronized to the natural aesthetics of the world. Currently residing in Calgary, Alberta, Hayley works part time in the theatrical industry as well as pursuing her own artistic career.

Hayley’s most influential discoveries as an artist were made exploring the beautiful and vast wilderness of Western Canada. In these inspiring settings she became vividly aware of some peculiar connections. A glance at nature reveals an overwhelming diversity. However, it turns out patterns and forms are repeated and the immense variety that nature creates emerges from the workings and reworking’s of only a few formal themes. Hayley often emulates these patterns of tree roots, veins, grains, and intestine-like meanders.

Hayley’s process begins on canvas with aerosol paint. There are typically two stages; chaos & order. Phase one, is explorative and expressive. Aerosol paint is applied, using a variety of techniques, with no intentions or foresights of the outcome. The second phase, is much more deliberate & controlled. She sketches, maps and plans the foreground, with meticulous detail. This contrast in her work creates balance & visual complexity. Common in all her work, is the use of bold colour. Hayley has an undeniable and inescapable attraction to saturated colour. Fascinated by the beauty, mystery & behaviours of animals, the appearance of intriguing creatures is common in her works.

Continuously exploring new processes, techniques, and mediums, Hayley aims not only for her pieces to be aesthetically pleasing, but also to draw attention to the beautiful details in life that are sometimes overlooked.
