Lucas Chaisson's latest full-length release is a culmination of five years of life writing and playing music in Edmonton, Alberta. A brilliant follow up to the acclaimed, Colin Linden produced, "Telling Time" (2015), the aptly named "Most True Thing" dives deeper into Chaisson's journey to discover his true voice.

For the first time, Lucas takes on the role of producer - resulting in his most fully realized effort to date. Engineer Scott Franchuk and a lineup of some of Canada's finest musicians take the listener on a journey from soft, understated folk ballads to twang heavy electric guitar anthems. The band accompanies Chaisson in a way that serves his "freshly-familiar" style of songwriting.

At its core "Most True Thing" is a look inside the mind of an artist striving to find himself. Fans who have followed Chaisson since he broke onto the roots scene as a 16 year old kid will appreciate the growth and maturity displayed in his new release. New fans will appreciate the comfortable, seasoned atmosphere of the recording - a product of growing up in front of an audience. "Most True Thing" solidifies Lucas as a sincere artist who is in it for the long haul.

Tickets just $20 but VERY limited here: don't miss out. These shows sold out well in advance last year!

“The word Prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary Herald, CANADA

“Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in their thousands towards the main stage to witness a young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper.” The Firefly Column, USA

“Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation.” The Indie Blender, CANADA

“reinventing roots guitar” - Rhythms Magazine, AUSTRALIA

“Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.” BW Review, NEW ZEALAND

‘Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical’, AUSTRALIA

Mon. October 7th  Smoota, Fake Fake, Emily Bach

Smoota, Fake Fake, Emily Bach  @ Copper Owl Oct 7 2019 - Sep 18th @ Copper Owl
$10 at the door only.
the fifty fifty arts collective is get'n sexy with

Smoota aka Dave Smoota Smith

Smoota’s new album PHEROMONES is an arousing soak in the hot tub of your sexual imagination. Inspired by the warm and sensual sounds of 70’s soul, Smoota’s follow-up to his 2013 debut FETISHES is a risqué exploration of the modern sexual landscape. A New York City musician who has worked with TV On The Radio, Run The Jewels, Sufjan Stevens, Steven Tyler, Aaron Neville, and many others, Smoota performed all the music on PHEROMONES himself, adding only backup vocals, strings, and a (fake?) orgasm from a friend in Australia. With a unique mix of honesty, curiosity, and sly humor, the album puts both a dip in your hip and a smile on your face. Touching on the polyamorous urge, happy S&M relationships, taboo lust, erotic intimacy, and more, Pheromones will turn out the lights, liberate your mind, arouse your body, and then make you breakfast in the morning.

Fake Fake

is local R&B duo Charlotte Hynds and Justin Campbell.

Following a casual collaboration in August 2018, the duo became fast friends and writing partners, with an explosive creative energy and natural chemistry between them. Their self-described 'Disposable Love' approach to songwriting has been the result, with a focus on rich gospel arrangements, funk-drenched guitars, offset percussion reminiscent of the late J. Dilla, and a wry wit to Campbell’s contemplative lyricism.

Emily Bach solo (VAN)

Experimental violinist best known for their work with Big John Bates and the Dirty Spells plays a very special one time only solo set.

$10 at the door

This show is funded by Feed the Arts in the CRD

Scenic Route to Alaska are once again hitting Canadian highways for a string of intimate and high-impact live dates this fall all in anticipation of a jam-packed 2020.

For two straight years between 2016 and 2018, the heralded Edmonton-based indie pop trio worked tirelessly scaling the summit of the music scene. They dropped two acclaimed LPs Tough Luck and Long Walk Home that weaved memorable melodies and catchy vocals through compelling, musically-rich arrangements and earned a slew of awards and accolades on their backs. Theyve toured relentlessly across North America, Europe, and Australia and subsequently watched their fanbase grow exponentially the world over.

Following some overdue and well-deserved downtime earlier in 2019, the band is now preparing to share their first taste of new music in over 18 months ahead of a handful of highly-anticipated shows between B.C. and Ontario that are sure to satisfy loyal fans and new followers alike.
