Back by popular demand, The Pearl Theater proudly welcomes Eden Oliver, Alex Rempel and Jeff Poynter, collectively the fiery Cascadian trio West My Friend, in concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, February 1,|
The three gifted and sonically adventurous band members from Victoria, British Columbia, thrive on creating a new box then thinking outside of it. Punctuated by musings on anxiety and belonging, song structures vary, and dynamics change from moment to moment, painting powerful lyrical portraits over backgrounds of violins and trumpets that swell, collapse, and tumble between bold harmonies.
In the modern musical landscape, its rare to hear something as put-together as folk outfit West My Friend - something so layered, deeply symphonic, baroque and mysterious in its own winking way while still courting an edge of disaster.
Simple is safe, but complex is fiery, intricate, and ultimately more rewarding.
Steeped in the visual styles of western Canada, West My Friend are veterans of the Victoria music scene. After 10 years as a band, they released their fourth album, In Constellation, in September.
West My Friend continues to refine the art of creating achingly poignant folk music, only this time, theyre backed by a full symphony orchestra, heavily layered while remaining lighthearted.
Intricate yet accessible. Melancholic yet optimistic.
With over 650 performances and several tours under their collective belt, West My Friend is bringing forth a new sound youve never known youve wanted and new meaning to the things youve never known you needed.
