Twin Bandit
 
 

The West End Cultural Centre is thrilled to announce Twin Bandit as part of our 30th anniversary presentation of artists in October!

Life and art both move in cycles.

While working on their second full-length album, the aptly titled Full Circle [NETTWERK], Twin Bandit grew personally and creatively amidst life’s unpredictable ebb and flow. Throughout that experience, the Vancouver-based duo—Hannah Walker and Jamie Elliot—progressed as songwriters and musicians, delicately expanding their sonic palette of folk, alternative, and country and opening up lyrically like never before.

“The concept of a full circle spoke to us,” admits Hannah. “When we started writing, Jamie and I were in not in very good places. Jamie was dealing with mental health issues. I was struggling with depression and the loss of family members and friends. There were a lot of funerals at the time. We sat down and made a decision to write music that’s positive and encouraging. When you focus on practicing positivity and gratitude, it can really change your outlook. Even though we began in a tough place, it was an exciting and beautiful experience. Everything came back around. We acknowledge that it will be difficult again down the road, but there’s always another day to keep trying.”

 

Post Script is a bilingual indie-folk trio from Edmonton, Alberta. The band is comprised of Steph Blais on vocals and guitar, Paul Cournoyer on vocals and upright bass and Brayden Treble on lead guitar and vocals. Post Script delivers songs that come straight from the heart.

What makes Post Script unique? Paul and Steph are both franco-albertans keen to share their musical expression in both languages.

“What makes their music so good is the incredible, indescribable vocal blending juxtaposed with the crystal clear vocals of Steph’s voice.”
