COLLEEN BROWN & ELIJAH ABRAMS (Folk/Pop, Edmonton)

May 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$10

Colleen Brown + Elijah Abrams 2016

Prairie-bred musician Colleen Brown is a force on the national music scene, traveling coast to coast, singing and playing guitar, piano, and bass. She writes music that takes on the subjects of love, fate, and psychic retooling; she is often compared to Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Heart.

‘Direction’ is her fifth release, co-produced by Brown, beloved Can-rocker Joel Plaskett, and Los Angeles’ Raymond Richards (Local Natives). Released in March of 2015 with live performance recordings on CKUA and CBC Radio, the album charted in the Top 50 earshot, and propelled her first European forays into Germany and the UK. Kerry Doole of exclaim.ca says ‘she is the rare vocalist that impresses equally on vibrant soul and quiet folk…travelling in Brown’s Direction is one very pleasing trek.’

Having released 4 full length albums, an EP, several collaborative projects, and criss-crossed the country several times, Brown has shared stages with Frank Black, Jim Cuddy, Rufus Wainwright, Jakob Dylan, Kathleen Edwards, Hawksley Workman, Don MacLean, and appeared on CBC’s Q, Drive & Canada Live; as well as touring Canada with Hannah Georgas, Crash Test Dummies and Buck 65.

This evening, Eli Abrams will join Colleen. Eli is a talented young multi-instrumentalist from the area who recently uprooted to Edmonton where he joined forces with Colleen. He is most well known for his work in the famous Abrams Brothers bluegrass band playing with the likes of Bob Burtch!

“The talents of this Edmonton-based vocalist shine like a beacon. Her boldly written originals…have the good bones and great melodic rhythm of classic big-screen pop songs” – Robert Everett-Green, Globe & Mail

“One of Canada’s premiere songwriters. With a voice like a clarion call she’s one of our premiere singers, too.” – Judith Lynch

“CBC’s First Play‘she is the rare vocalist that impresses equally on vibrant soul and quiet folk… travelling in Brown’s ‘Direction’ is one very pleasing trek.” – Kerry Doole, www.exclaim.ca
