Strings On Kings Presents: The Karpinka Brothers

The Karpinka Brothers nostalgic and pastiche songwriting lands the Saskatchewan based folk group in a genre all of their own. Joel Plaskett once described their sound as “Buddy Holly boogie meets Crowded House.” Their fourth album, Talk Is Cheap, is set for release in the fall of 2017.

Talk Is Cheap feels like a call to arms. It finds a seemingly impossible balance of sincerity and positivity. When they sing lines like “Where would I be without music in my heart?” You not only believe them, you relate without a trace of irony. The brothers have a longstanding reputation of putting their money where their mouth is, finding a delicate balance between professional musicians and community volunteers. In addition to sharing the stage with influential artists like John K. Samson and Gordon Lightfoot, they’ve played dozens of concerts for residents of a local long-term care residence.

Produced and recorded by Grammy nominee Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Leonard Cohen, Vic Chestnut) at his legendary Hotel2Tango in Montréal, Talk Is Cheap is the most realized and expansive Karpinka Brothers album to date. Their eloquent blend of timeless folk and 60s pop songs are complimented by an impressive list of contributing musicians including Mathieu Charbonneau (Timber Timbre) on piano and keys, Jamie Thompson (Unicorns/Islands) on drums and percussion, Sophie Trudeau (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) on violin, Joel Kerr (Sara Slean) on bass, and backing vocals by Krista Muir.

Aude Ray

Fantastico is pleased to present Aude Ray on June 29th for Be My Home album release Canadian Tour.

Aude Ray’s music brought her to BC fifteen years ago where she flourished as a singer songwriter. The Montreal culture and passion comes out in her energetic personality, style and lyrics. Her melodies share freshness from the Pacific Ocean and the majestic mountains of British Columbia. Aude Ray is performing from Great Vancouver to Halifax in the Spring-Summer 2017 as Artist on Board with Via Rail Canada for her tour Be My Home, her new bilingual album of Indie Folk with jazz undertones. The songs show and tell about Aude Ray, her philosophy of life, creativity, travels, nature and humanity.
