Darryl Webster, Paul Federici, Emilio Bonito, Fri May 1

darryl-webster-closeupcFriday May 1, 2015, at 8 pm, $10 / pwyc. Canadian author and former Sunriser frontman Darryl Webster (aka OLD KID) performs a special acoustic show to celebrate the release of his new EP This Echo on Hamilton indie record label Maisonneuve Music. (http://maisonneuvemusic.com/artists/old-kid/)
A departure from the sparse acoustic tone of his last release (OLD KID, 2010), This Echo resurrects the singer/songwriter’s indie rock roots. Electronic undercurrents run beneath hypnotic, lilting guitars in “Yorkshire Lady.” The restless, expectant energy of “OK, Okay” dissolves into a wash of resonating guitars and synths. “[This Echo] is more than just okay — it’s deep, soulful and moody…” David Mooney, 104.9 Imagine FM (Manchester, UK). The release of This Echo follows Darryl’s recent 70,000-km trip around the globe, and the book he wrote to chronicle his journey. Released by Pitch Publishing in November 2014, Pride in Travel: A Title-Winning Season Exploring the World of Manchester City is a captivating exploration of local culture and sport, set against the author’s journey towards self-discovery. This Echo is a musical snapshot of one Canadian musician’s evolution from indie rocker to incisive storyteller.

Featuring opening sets by singer/songwriter Paul Federici (http://www.paulfederici.ca/) and instrumental guitarist Emilio Bonito (http://emiliobonito.com/).
