Thu. February 28th  Matt Storm, Ivan Hartle, Cara Bateman

Matt Storm, Ivan Hartle, Cara Bateman @ Copper Owl Feb 28 2019 - Feb 18th @ Copper Owl
2000
$10 at the door only.
Come join us for a night a Soul, Folk, Blues and everything in between. This will be the kick off for Ivan Hartle and Matt Storm's 4 day tour through Vancouver Island, with local artist Cara Bateman lending her talents for the first night!

IVAN HARTLE

Ivan Hartle was born and raised in Vancouver B.C. His influences and style have been shaped by an upbringing surrounded by music as well as his time playing college baseball in the southern United States. His music elicits vintage vibes and floats between the blues, soul, and folk genres. Characterized by his strong vocals, Ivan’s talents are evident in his guitar playing and percussion accompaniment.

Ivan's burst onto the Vancouver music scene with gigs at The Railway, The Belmont, Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza, The Anza Club, Cafe Deux Soleils, Mahoney and Sons, and many others. He was selected to perform at the Vancity Feature/Vancity Studio artist showcase event in September of 2018, Live Acts Canada Best in Vancouver Competition in the fall of 2018, and the Anza Live community showcase event in late 2017.

CARA BATEMAN

Though she stands small, singer-songwriter Cara Bateman’s voice is anything but. Bold and intoxicating, her sound has been described as a rock-gospel fusion. Her powerful vocals are coloured with a natural rasp that is at times gritty and soulful, and other times warm as honey. In her live performances, Cara is known to captivate, and literally silence, an audience – it is not uncommon for a hush to fall over the crowd when she belts out her first notes.

Cara entered the music scene in 2016 with the release of her debut EP, and has since gathered impressive momentum. After a spotlight feature on Roundhouse Radio in Vancouver, B.C., she went on to tour Canada and win a talent contest that gained her a spot on the lineup for Song & Surf Music Festival on Vancouver Island. Through this contest, Cara caught the attention of other bookers and promoters, and became connected with Rob Zifarelli of Paradigm Talent Agency. She went on to be booked for several tour dates with The Elwins and Dashboard Confessional, including a date at the legendary Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, B.C. Festival season ended on a high note in 2018 when Cara brought her band to rock out at Sunfest Country Music Festival; one of Canada’s largest.

All of these experiences have generated considerable growth in Cara’s artistry and sound. Staying true to her folk roots, she continues to tell powerful stories that speak open and honestly about mental health, love, relationships, and the human psyche. In preparation for another release, Cara is currently experimenting with a darker, earthier, and rawer soundscape. Though she continues to grow and evolve, one thing is forever constant – her flawless vocals are like nothing you’ve ever heard before.

MATT STORM

Matt Storm is an Indie Soul Singer-Songwriter hailing from Vancouver B.C. Stepping on the scene around 2014, Matt has been writing, recording and performing his own work, and collaborating with other artists for quite some time.

His latest EP “Major 7th Medicine” came out mid October 2018, and was met with a warm reception in Vancouver, and Canada wide. The EP’s first single “You Still Stay” has been featured on CBC Radio Two’s “Afterdark” and “Nightshift”, and the music video has garnered over 4,000 views on Youtube. The second single “Floating”, was featured on multiple Spotify editorial playlists, and streamed over 60,000 times.

Matt has been performing solo, as well as with his band extensively in 2018, at venues such as The Biltmore, The Railway, Cafe Deux Soleil, Sofar Detroit/Seattle, Calabash and many more. As a backing musician with artists like Vancouver’s Desirée Dawson, he has more live experience at venues/events like The Vogue and Vancouver’s “Celebration of Light” Festival

His sound can be described as indie soul, playing on classic references such as Bill Withers intertwined with new sounds like Emily King, and Ray LaMontagne. His soulful lyrics and jazz influenced chord progressions make for a unique and relaxing listening experience. Drawing on life experience and introspection, his songwriting searches for meaning through melancholy, and hopes to define love through vulnerability.

ARTIST INFO

Tourist Company - "Apollo" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAnc-Xmq1b8

Tourist Company formed after meeting in 2013. After that they teamed up with singer-songwriter Jordan Klassen to produce and record their EP Space Race, which they released in May 2014.

In June 2014, the band was accepted into the Peak Performance Project. In November of that year, they won the $50,000 3rd place prize.

The band toured and recorded throughout 2015. Their debut single "Shouldn't Believe" was released and sent to radio on September 14, 2015. On April 29, 2016, the group released Mercury EP.

The band's second single "Pedestals" was released on August 16, 2016 ahead of their debut record, which was announced for an October 21, 2016 release date in North America. "Pedestals" broke into the Top 30 of CBC Radio 3 that September, reaching a peak of #21 on the chart. It then crossed over into the Top 20 of CBC Radio 2 at #20 on October 28, 2016. It peaked at #8 on December 1, 2016.

The group's full-length debut LP Apollo was released on October 21, 2016. It was placed on The Georgia Straight's Best Albums of 2016 list.

Their third single "Apollo" premiered on The Strombo Show on February 12, 2017, and was sent to radio on February 13, 2017. It debuted at #22 on the CBC Radio 3 Top 30 on March 13, 2017, and peaked at #5 on April 10, 2017.

Apollo was released across Europe on October 20th, 2017, and featured as a NoiseTrade "New + Notable" for the same week.
On May 18, 2018, the band released a standalone single entitled "Spokane" and stated they were working on their sophomore record.

“Conflicted/Restricted” has been announced as the lead single from their sophomore record and will be available on all platforms on January 25, 2019.

Long Range Hustle - "Crush You" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rklqIrRHC4Q

If you're new to a Long Range Hustle show, it only takes a minute to feel how their contagious energy connects with everyone in the room. From a sweat soaked club to a breezy festival stage, Long Range Hustle brings the warm infectious melodies, driving rhythms, and gorgeous harmonies, in spades.

A mix of high school and summer camp counsellor tenures brought the core of this southern Ontario five-piece together - Paul Brogee (vocals, guitar, violin), Jay Foster (vocals, piano), Mike Brogee (bass, vocals), and AJ Fisico (drums, vocals) with Ryan Pritchard (guitar) solidifying the line up in early 2017. Each of the five members come from diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz to rock to classical, but all share a common love for songwriting and performing.

The August 17, 2018 release of their new single, Morning Clover, brings the dawn of a new era for LRH. This offering is the first cut from their upcoming 2019 album. A recording session at The Bathouse Studio near Kingston, Ontario with acclaimed Scottish producer and mixer, Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Wintersleep, Snow Patrol) brings about a refined and evolved sound for the band, reflective of their persistent drive to push themselves.

The band started to gain momentum with the release of "From Seedlings to Saplings…" in 2016. Confront Magazine noted, the sound "strays from the guitar-drums-bass formula to incorporate violin and piano in every hook-laden song." Over the last few years, touring has taken them from the Maritimes to Manitoba, they've shared stages with Arkells, Matt Mays, Big Wreck, and delighted hometown crowds with month-long residencies at Toronto's Dakota Tavern. http://www.longrangehustle.com http://www.facebook.com/long.range.hustle http://www.twitter.com/longrangehustle http://www.instagram.com/longrangehustlemusic\

Tickets $15

The award winning Bombargo brings a vibrant splash of soul to their funky indie vibes with layers of rock, disco, and R&B infused throughout; they’ve created a sound that truly moves and grooves, inspiring the world to feel their music. Opening for legendary acts like John Butler Trio, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Joel Plaskett, the band has been rapidly making a name for themselves with their unrivaled live show, catchy-groovin’ hooks, and good time guarantee.

Bombargo received massive acclaim when pop icon Taylor Swift added their 2018 single ‘Mr. No Good’ to her first and only Spotify playlist entitled ’Songs Taylor Loves’. The playlist features artist including Ed Sheeran, Camilla Cabello, and Kendrick Lamar. Being a part of this star-studded playlist saw Bombargo featured on CBC’s the Q, NME, Exclaim, Fashion, Noise, People, and Billboard. The aftershocks of this exposure has been monumental and have set the stage for Bombargo to become a household name globally.

Following up on the success of ‘Mr. No Good’, the band dropped their new disco single ‘All the Same’ in June of 2018 reaching #1 on Spotify’s Indie Allstar playlist. Their latest single ‘Oxygen’ released in August 2018 has landed itself on several new music, indie and pop playlists and it’s music video features Instagram/Youtube celebrity @Dreaming_Outloud. Bombargo has over 1 million streams on Spotify, half a million views on Youtube, and was just nominated as the Saskatchewan Music Awards “2018 Pop/Rock Artist of the Year”.

The group was originally formed by Nathan Thoen and Spenncer Chilliak after the two met and spontaneously decided to drive 16 hours to attend Sasquatch Music Festival. The duo found songwriting together effortless and wrote their debut single “Let it Grow” (Back on Main, 2015) during their very first writing session. Bombargo’s debut EP “Back on Main” would go on to be included in “The Top 10 Best Saskatchewan Albums of 2015” by SaskMusic, further inspiring them to continue writing, touring, and releasing multiple singles and CD’s. The group has since evolved into a larger touring band thats bought new possibilities to Nathan and Spenncer’s vision. This revived 7-piece lineup adds keys, saxophone, and massive 4-part harmonies; allowing them to grow their epic live performance and push their creativity in the studio.

Bombargo brings an unrivalled energy to the stage with sing along anthems, magical harmonies, life changing power hums, wild acrobatics, stunts, and heartfelt messages that combined make for one of the best live shows on planet earth. With frontman Nathan Thoen's passionate conviction and contagious ‘Jagger like’ dance moves, even billionaire and music industry icon Richard Branson was impressed “I haven’t seen this type of energy since The Rolling Stones” … and he would know, having personally signed The Rolling Stones to Virgin Records.

Bombargo has always remained a conscious band with a focus gibing back and making the world a better place. 100% of sales for their EP ‘Back on Main’ were donated directly to victims of Saskatchewan Forest Fires in 2015. Their song ‘Heroes Never Die’ was written as a tribute to Michelle Curtis who tragically passed away after rescuing over 8 drowning children in Nova Scotia (Full Story on CBC). And in 2018 Bombargo wrote and released the single “Share the Light” in tribute to those lost in the Humboldt Broncos accident, and donating 100% of sales to the families affected.

In short, Bombargo provides the perfect balance of conscious good times and wild energy recharging fun; reminding everyone how magical this life truly is and how each of us have the power to come together and use our magic to make this world a better place.

The Copper Owl and VILA Presents have teamed up to bring you a killer night of dark electronic dance music.

SIGSALY (VAN)
https://sigsaly.bandcamp.com/
B. West and S. Lloyd are SIGSALY. Drawing influence from Techno, Minimal-wave, and Industrial, SIGSALY weaves hard hitting electronics, and powerfully dark vocals; lyrically inspired by love, loss and bleak winters.

SIGSALY is electronic music for dancing
SIGSALY is rhythm for movement
SIGSALY is cadence of the body

Psychic Pollution (live PA)
https://psychicpollution.bandcamp.com/
Vintage synths, dark soundscapes, analog rhythms. Psychic takes their moody epic cinematic pieces to the dance floor with minimal wave, techno, house inspired beats. "A stranger, stranger things"

Consumer Report
https://consumerreport.bandcamp.com/
CR has been on the scene for some time in Victoria infusing live dance music into all kinds of different music events. CR has made a name for themselves as a consistent live PA artist in Victoria making dance music with a dark edge.

Holosapien
https://holosapien.bandcamp.com/releases
Inspired to make dark electronic music after seeing Sigsaly perform not long ago, Holosapien are beginning to make a name for themselves already in Victoria delving in the dark chaos of gothic dance music. Prepare to have your mind blown!

NESS-T

DJ Ness-T favors deep bass lines and rocking girl vocals. From smooth deep house to trap bangers and everything in between. Always leaning towards to darker, bad ass, lip-biting-sexiness of electronica.
Music has always been the driving force behind her creativity, her best friend on rough days, and ever present soundtrack to life. Ness-T believes all genres have their place and time, and there is no need to limit yourself to only one. Ness-T strives to incorporate the best of each category with each individual situation, while creatively blending it all together with a sprinkling of high energy live drumming on top.

Here are links to some of my mixes:

DJ Marlee

Marlee first stepped to the decks at age 19 and enjoyed a meteoric rise within Canada’s West Coast scene; particularly hometown Victoria, BC where she was known for creating romping dance floors through dirty rhythms and big bass. She packed clubs, stood beside legends and carved herself a following, but 20 years later, Marlee is rediscovering her first love.

FAQ:

> Why the Name "Ladies Night?"

The intention behind this event is to bring our community together to support female DJs in the Bass Hive brand. Doesn't mean it's only women-identified only able to come into the space. This is definitely a collective, community, we appreciate our male-identified friends who post for us, support the female djs.

It's a ladies night because we are promoting empowered female-identified DJs. Empowered ladies being featured, plus a nod to a song called "Ladies Night" from back in the day.

Please be respectful of the space you are in. Everyone is welcome. We are in the space together. Be respectful of who is and who isn't a "lady". We all have perceptions of ourselves. This is a safe-space, queer-friendly. Let's be there for the Bass. Bassey-Housey night of music.

Only 120 people capacity at The Copper Owl. Let's get out there and have a good time!

______________________
Born and raised in Lethbridge, AB, Ty Vanden Dool has been recording and performing his personal style of synthpop since his studies in the University of Lethbridge's Digital Audio Arts program, blending elements of past new wave favourites like Depeche Mode and Tears for Fears with those of recent electronic bands like CHVRCHES and M83. Besides an appearance at Reign Bough Fiddle near Smoky Lake, AB, Vanden Dool has played numerous local shows, sharing the stage with artists like Fox Who Slept the Day Away, Hello Moth, Kane Incognito, King of Foxes and Too Soon Monsoon.
After amassing a large collection of original recordings (one collection of which has made electronic chart appearances on community radio stations in Edmonton, Kamloops and the top 30 here in Victoria), Vanden Dool has collected some of his best work into a self-titled debut album. Rife with personal themes of loneliness, unrequited love and unfulfilled desires, it's sure to be one of the most upbeat downers of 2019.
