BROS is the new project from Ewan and Shamus Currie, front man and keyboardist, respectively, for platinum-selling Canadian band The Sheepdogs. Although they are indeed brothers, the name was chosen with tongue firmly planted in cheek, a reflection of the 10-song self-titled debut album daringly expanding their sonic range in unexpected and playful ways.

This isn’t Sheepdogs-style rawk; in fact, there’s not a lot of guitar on the album at all. Instead, the sound of BROS, encapsulated in the album’s first single “Tell Me,” combines vintage funk and power pop in the spirit of what Sly & The Family Stone once called a whole new thing.

March 15 - Many Visions: Plumes Deconstructs the Music of Grimes

Co-presented by the Central Student Association & CFRU 93.3 FM 

UC Courtyard

“With its assortment of strings, various brass arrangements, guitars, and so much more, Plumes is a glorious crossover of classical music grace and indie-pop catchiness” – Greyowl Point

Producer/singer Grimes has become one of Canada’s most intriguing talents, whose highly detailed yet insanely catchy sonic constructions provide much to explore. Powered by the imagination of thirteen composers, Montreal’s Plumes Ensemble takes inspiration from Grimes’ breakout album Visions to create an entirely new sonic universe. 

Plumes, a hybrid pop/classical group originating from Montréal, is the ideal group to take on this mission. Singer/guitarist and songwriter Veronica Charnley, former frontperson for Canadian indie rock group Flotilla, is joined by musicians from diverse backgrounds, including composer and multi-instrumentalist Geof Holbrook, harpist Éveline Grégoire-Rousseau, drummer Karl Jannuska and an expanding cast of chamber musicians including violist Pemi Paull and bass clarinettist Louise Campbell.

Many Visions’ composers are Carmen Vanderveken, Veronica Charnley, Isaiah Ceccarelli, Giorgio Magnanensi, Nicole Lizée, Marielle Groven, Jennifer Bachynsky, Emilie LeBel, Fjóla Evans, Tawnie Olson, Stephanie Moore, Eliot Britton, and Monica Pearce. Each reconsiders the songs of Visions to create original compositions celebrating subversion and deconstruction.

March 22 - CSA Noon Hour Concert: The Small Glories

Co-presented by the Central Student Association & CFRU 93.3 FM 

UC Courtyard

"I actually heard someone in the audience gasp! ... The Small Glories had us all totally enthralled." – Whitstable Sessions Music Club, UK

Folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories are Cara Luft & JD Edwards, a dynamic duo planted on the Canadian Prairies. They are a study in contrasts; Cara, all earth mother on her 21-speed bike, environmentally friendly and wholesome, ebullient and engaging; and burly JD, in scruffy beard, ball cap, t-shirt and jean jacket, slightly intimidating (until you meet him). At first glance few would peg them for a highly creative musical partnership. Yet these two veteran singer/songwriters have teamed up and are building a buzz around their tight harmonies, authenticity and visceral performances.

Luft is a Juno Award winner and co-founder of the folk trio The Wailin' Jennys. She has earned her rep as a gutsy live performer and insightfully honest songwriter, with serious skills on the guitar and clawhammer banjo. Edwards is a riveting live performer and prolific songwriter, a soulful singer blessed with one of the most versatile and powerful voices in Canada. Both are musical road warriors who have racked up many miles on both sides of the Atlantic.
