Vancouver’s Lion Bear Fox is three huge voices joined as one, telling the truth through compelling story, honest narrative and unbridled passion. Three men going to war onstage every night to share a message of hope, vulnerability and redemption. Lion Bear Fox is “a musical force of nature”, an “emotional awakening” that’s sure to “be around for a lifetime”. (Nanaimo Daily News/Songs in the Valley/Terry David Mulligan).
Originally known for their respective solo careers, Christopher Arruda, Ryan McMahon and Cory Woodward joined forces as Lion Bear Fox in 2012 and was immediately selected as one of the top 20 unsigned bands British Columbia (Peak Performance Project). The fall of 2013 saw the band release their self-produced breakthrough EP “We’d Be Good Men” and take Western Canada by storm, touring 15 times over the next two years including stops at Canadian Music Week (Toronto), Contact East (PEI), OSAC (Regina) Mission Folk Festival and The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC. They have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists like Tom Wilson, Good For Grapes, Elliot Brood and Kim Mitchell.

The Small Glories live at Streaming Cafe

tsg_crop-135x135

tsg_SC_webStreaming Cafe is very proud to present The Small Glories ( Cara Luft & JD Edwards) Friday, April 1 with special guest Matthew Hornell

Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a dynamic new duo planted on the Canadian Prairies. They are a study in contrasts; Cara, all earth mother on her 21-speed bike, helmet and backpack, environmentally friendly and wholesome, ebullient and engaging; and burly JD, looking like a cross between a biker and long-haul trucker in scruffy beard, ball cap, t-shirt and jean jacket, slightly intimidating (until you meet him). At first glance few would peg them for a highly creative musical partnership. Yet these two veteran singer/songwriters have teamed up and are building a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity and visceral performances. Luft is a Juno award winner, co-founder of folk trio The Wailin’ Jennys, and a touring road warrior. She has earned a solid reputation as an exciting live performer, accomplished guitarist, clawhammer banjo player and insightfully honest songwriter. Edwards has a voice that defies categorization, one that easily ranges from gentle and melodic to fierce and powerful, leaving listeners begging for more. He is truly one of the finest singers of his time. Together as The Small Glories, Luft and Edwards are a tour de force, a case of 1 + 1 = 3.

Kane (The Grapes of Wrath) & Potvin (The Northern Pikes)

web_kane_potvin1-135x135

Streaming Cafe is very proud to present Kevin Kane (The Grapes of Wrath) & Bryan Potvin (The Northern Pikes) on Friday, February 26.
http://www.kaneandpotvin.com/
From the mid-’80s to the early-’90s, The Grapes Of Wrath and The Northern Pikes were responsible for some of the catchiest and most heart-felt singles and videos to come out of Canada at that time. Fast forward some 20 years later and the vocalist/guitarists from each of these bands find themselves living just blocks away from one another in Toronto.

This realization led to Bryan Potvin (The Northern Pikes) and Kevin Kane (The Grapes of Wrath) getting together to hang out with a couple of guitars for some casual jams, and the conclusion: “This sounds good! Let’s do some shows!

Featured Visual Artist: Wayne Wilson

WayneWilson_art-135x135

WWl It is a pleasure to have Wayne Wilson’s art on our walls for the month of December! Come down to the cafe and see the works in person.

Landscape and panoramic imagery clearly dominate my current art work. For the most part, this grows out of a strong notion that there is something attractively primal in the panoramic format. The eye, sweeping side to side, pays a kind of homage to the horizon – and in every culture, it seems to me, the horizon both pushes and pulls us to its brink and beyond. Some of my other compellingly strong tendencies, however, are more strongly drawn toward the eclectic and bring influences from still life and the abstract.
As a geographer by training, it has always struck me that the nature of space and/or place are never merely important to the expression of who we are; they are critical. I try to find that in my art; to distil the place and reveal its own rhythm.

Biography
I was born in Lillooet, BC in a house my father built out of railway ties. He had grown up in the Okanagan (Oliver) and, after moving around British Columbia as a school teacher, we moved back to the Okanagan (Kelowna) in the 1960s. I have worked as a cowboy, truck driver, lounge singer, purchasing agent, college professor, narrator and at many other jobs – I spent most of my career, however, in the Museum field and loved every day of that work.
Sketching and other artwork have been part of my life since I was a teenager, and since then I have taken a sketchbook and paints with me wherever I go.

Danny Michel (LIVE!) & his vintage 1978 Star Trek Van

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).
