About Kaley Bird:
Kaley Bird emerged onto the Canadian music scene producing “music that is quirky, smart and full of musical goodies” The Gauntlet (University of Calgary). Bird’s debut release was immediately welcomed by campus and community radio and was soon being heard nationwide, quickly climbing campus radio charts and receiving regular play on CBC, CKUA and select commercial radio stations. Relentlessly touring, Bird has shared the stage with the likes of Steve Earl, Kathleen Edwards and many others. Bird has performed at venues and events across Canada and the U.S. Highlights include performances at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Canadian Music Week, North Country Fair, the Canmore Folk Festival, and as one of the fates in Anais Mitchell’s folk opera: Hadestown.
Working with critically acclaimed musician and producer Russell Broom (Jann Arden, The Dudes), Bird’s latest album, Don’t Say You’re Sorry was released January 10, 2014. Bird wrote much of this album between 2011-2012 while living 3 hours south of her hometown of Edmonton, AB. The songs pay tribute to the people and landmarks of Alberta’s beautiful and harsh northern capital.
About Todd Stewart:
Veteran of the Western Canadian music scene, Stewart is the Songwriter and Front Man of Calgary’s popular Western Roots group the Northern Beauties. In 2016 he received a pair of awards, Western Canadian Music Award for Roots Group/ Duo of the year and a YYC Music Award for Folk Recording of the year. Showcasing Nationally and Internationally in Europe & the U.S with a recent feature in Nashville at the legendary BlueBird Cafe, his songs have broken out of the local walls of Calgary. His upcoming solo release “Everything You Want”, November 2017, is stripped down and heart heavy with the haunting melodies about love & empathy he has become known for. It is a collection of songs that take a side step from the Harmony rich Northern Beauties to feature his tender vocals and hard won lyrics that shine a deathless light on his love for songwriting and the craft of the performer.
