Noah Derksen

March 22, 2019 8:30 pm. Born and raised in Manitoba, but steeped in BC, Noah Derksen's songwriting mixes the fortitude of Prairie winters with west coast optimism. A spritely 24, Derksen's folk balladry feels like your first long-distance love affair: contemplative, brooding, and wrapped in a youthful optimism that despite our best efforts, often washes away silently into wilting tides of time.In spring of 2018, Noah released two new singles: Wilderness of Oregon and Nothing. While still maintaining the vulnerability and simplicity found in previous recordings, these songs - produced by Bowen Island's Winston Hauschild (Hey Ocean!, Hannah Georgas) - present a new sonic direction for Noah, indicative of things to come.. 53 Elgin StreetOttawa, ON K1P 5W1..

Alexandra Stréliski

March 22, 2019 8:00 pm. One of the rare women in the neoclassical world, Alexandra Stréliski creates music that enthralls listeners, filling their minds with rich, cinematic images. An artist of Polish Jewish origin who grew up between Paris and Montreal, she made her debut with the 2010 album Pianoscope. The general public discovered her via Jean-Marc Vallée's films Dallas Buyers Club (2013), Demolition (2016) and the trailer of the acclaimed HBO series Big Little Lies (2017). More recently, "Plus tôt" and "Changing Winds," songs from her upcoming album Inscape, were heard on Sharp Objects (HBO, 2018). Building on this momentum, the composer and musician is ready to make her next artistic statement, due out in October 2018 on Secret CityRecords."To me," says Stréliski, "Inscape was an existential crisis. A year where everything capsized and I had to go through various interior landscapes – hectic, beautiful and painful at the same time." In her attempt to fill a certain emotional emptiness, she follows a creative urge that commits to taking the listener back to a form of lost sincerity. "A piano, on its own, is a very vulnerable thing, and I want to share this moment with the listener."The aforementioned support of Jean-Marc Vallée, which allowed Stréliski's music to be heard during the Oscars ceremony, brought her streaming numbers up to nearly 15 million streams. UK newspaper The Telegraph praised her debut album as "distinguishable by its simplicity, its sensitivity and softness" and "imbued with both melancholy and light.". 53 Elgin StreetOttawa, ON K1P 5W1..
