    Jenn Grant

    Jenn Grant expands to a galactic realm never before explored by the songwriter with Paradise. While Grant’s 2014 JUNO twice nominated (Songwriter & Contemporary Album of the Year) Compostela focused on Jenn’s own personal experience of loss, this time Grant points the compass towards the epic and intimate and explores a new depth of sound.

    “I wanted to explore new soundscapes,” Grant explains when describing how piano came to be the primary songwriting instrument. Grant created new shapes and colours with an array of new instrumentation and song collaboration with producer Daniel Ledwell. “I thought about my singing much more. I feel like I am a completely different artist from when I began performing. I don't feel like I really heard my own voice until recently. 

    Paradise feels personal and emotive, but it was born from a vantage point of watching as the world flexes amidst great joy and sorrow. Through her lyrics, Grant tells us of the world she watches from a distance, touching on global themes like love, growth, faith, longing, sex, death and reinvention. 

    Paradise’s songs reach out with world-weary awareness, that’s most evident on lead single “Galaxies,” a song that is the aural equivalent of star-gazing. “I pictured people standing at the edge of the earth, hands outstretched, asking, ‘What is bigger than us, than any of this?’” Grant says.

    Foxwarren with Hannah Cohen

    Foxwarren's North American tour kicks off in their hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan on May 29th at their favourite old haunt The Exchange.

    Foxwarren’s backstory reads like a page torn from the manual of rock & roll authenticity, as this group of siblings and childhood friends originally formed more than a decade ago. Growing up in scattered small towns across the Canadian prairies, Andy Shauf (guitars/keys/vocals), Dallas Bryson (guitar/vocals), and brothers Darryl Kissick (bass) and Avery Kissick (drums & percussion) eventually found themselves in Regina, Saskatchewan. The initial sessions for their self-titled debut began in the Kissicks’ parents’ farmhouse while they were away on vacation. Upon their return, Foxwarren were forced to relocate and recording resumed back in Regina in a rented house where the members lived as roommates. The band's name comes from the Kissick brothers’ family home in Foxwarren, Manitoba.

    Foxwarren has a special guest on this tour. Hannah Cohen has arrived home. From the title of her new album to the depth and beauty of the music, the Woodstock, NY-based singer-songwriter’s third album, Welcome Home, displays a new level of confidence and comfort with the many creative tools at her disposal. Cohen’s remarkably evocative voice is surrounded by dreamy, swooning incantations. With Welcome Home, “I don’t feel I have to cover up anything, or not be able to share,” Cohen says. “There’s less to interpret, I’m more visible. And as to reflecting on the past when things didn’t go well, I’ve left that behind. It was all worth it, to make my way to this point.”

    Presale is on now! If you don't have the presale password tickets will go on sale March 1st.

    This show will have limited seating.

    • Doors open at 7:30 PM
