Concert: Tiny Bill Cody, Fri April 15

tinybillcody_tinyheaven_600.jpgFriday April 15, at 8:30 pm $5 at door, at Artword Artbar, 15 Colbourne St. Tiny Bill Cody‘s Spring Special Concert, with special guests Jeff Griffiths on drums and Fehn Foss. An evening of Cover Songs, Originals, Spoken Word.
Eclectic Songwriter Tiny Bill Cody re-vamps songs which have haunted him since his youth, tells the odd tale of his private and public failings, and test drives a few new original tunes.

Tiny Bill Cody is the stage name of visual artist and writer Tor Lukasik-Foss, who was born and raised and is still living in Hamilton, Ontario. Tiny Bill Cody yodels, preaches, and sings earnestly on topics including electricity, small animals, nautical issues, and the human heart. Tiny Bill Cody has been performing since the early 1990’s, sometimes performs alone, sometimes in very odd and obscure circumstances of his choosing and design.

Tiny Bill Cody also plays with the Liquormen, (and has done so for at least five years) a small musical combo which tastefully presents his songs with whatever jazz, latin, country, or rock flourishes they require. Tiny Bill Cody sometimes refers to this music as “post cabaret”, although he is not entirely sure his use of the word is correct. “Post-Cabaret” seems better than saying “theatrical and old-timey”.

Tiny Bill Cody and the Liquormen have just released an eponymous release, containing 13 original songs, each one of them very good. This record features both live and studio tracks, was recorded in Hamilton and Toronto, and is the fourth independent Tiny Bill Cody release. It is for sale now.
