About the Performers
Since releasing her debut album, Canadian singer-songwriter Jenny Berkel has been enchanting listeners with her evocative songs and voice. Born in the heart of Ontario’s lush forests and fields, Berkel’s music has drawn her from rural Ontario to Winnipeg to Toronto to Montreal. This constant shifting finds its rest in her songs: dreamy and piercing, Berkel’s lyrics shimmer with memories of childhood, place and home. Berkel’s new sophomore album, Pale Moon Kid (Pheromone Recordings) was recorded with gifted producer Daniel Romano. Described by Exclaim! Magazine as “a smouldering sound to behold” and “acutely poetic,” this glowing new collection is lush, dreamy and lyrically compelling.
Scott Brunelle is a 24 year old multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and visual artist residing in London Ontario. His work focuses on retaining the hopeful feeling of reconciliation with the self, others, and nature. His music is ethereal in its jazz and experimental influence, yet grounded in country, folk and the blues. Scott is also an accomplished visual artist and poet. He immerses himself in improvisation and traditional musics of various cultures to add an element of direct spiritual connection within compositions. Scott hopes that through performing for an audience, there can be space opened to share emotion.
A London-based writer, photographer and gardener. Denice’s work is deeply reflective and nostalgic, connecting emotion and imagery amidst playful structures.
