Winterruption 2017: Said the Whale and Northcote at Louis’
January 21, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - January 22, 2017 @ 12:00 am
Vancouver’s Said The Whale has been on a steady upward trajectory for the past six years, as relentless touring and a prolific string of releases have led to successes including a JUNO Award in 2011 for New Group of the Year and nationally charting singles. Last year, the tireless five-piece – which includes dual songwriters Tyler Bancroft and Ben Worcester, drummer Spencer Schoening, keyboardist Jaycelyn Brown and bassist Nathan Shaw – embarked on a cross-Canada tour during which they wrote, rehearsed and performed a whole new slate of songs.
They’ll be bringing that new material to WINTERRUPTION this year to cheer up the longest, darkest, coldest time of year.
NORTHCOTE is Matt Goud, Stephen McGillivray, Mike Battle & Derek Heathfield.
Hope Is Made of Steel is the third full-length album from Northcote, the moniker of Canadian songwriter Matt Goud. The album arrives September 2015 and is an exciting step forward for the hard working artist. 2014 saw Goud and his band mates build their audience around the world with over 160 shows throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and the UK. The new record reflects Northcote’s punk rock and folk influences while sonically embracing the rock sound that they have developed through 18 months of near constant touring on the road.
