Dan Bern has released some two dozen studio albums, EPs, and live recordings since his first CD on Sony/Work in 1997. Either fronting various bands or as a solo performer, he is convincing, funny and timely, with an unassuming tip of the hat to the spirits of the past greats, all while sounding fresh and original. Dans songs pack a punch, and are engaging and often cinematic.

Berns singular songwriting has led to work on such projects as the Judd Apatow features Walk Hardthe Dewey Cox Story and Get Him to the Greek. His songs have appeared in countless TV shows and independent films, been covered by The Whos Roger Daltrey, and lately, comprise all the songs for Amazon Primes The Stinky and Dirty Show, a cartoon for youngsters, now in its second season.

In addition to the music, Dan Bern is a prolific painter, with works hanging in The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and The Bobby Feller Museum. He has published several books, the latest being a collection of poems, encounters, which recount his real-life encounters with, among others, Wilt Chamberlain, Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Carter and Hunter S. Thompson.

Exciting new projects in the works include new recordings with his much beloved band, The International Jewish Banking Conspiracy (IJBC).

***************************************************************

Since arriving in Vancouver in 2004, Christies song writing has taken shape in the city’s course of life, amongst circles and scenes where music and poetry converge. With a reverent awe of songwriters like Paul Simon, John Prine, and Joni Mitchell, hers are lyric-driven songs that could stand alone as poems, combined with striking melodies, delivered with a voice both powerful and nuanced. Her debut album and even the lion tamers got that same old blues is marked by shades of rockabilly, folk, doo-wop, rock n roll, and atmospheric ballads.

In addition to performing as a solo artist and front woman, she has also been active as a live back-up and studio musician/singer, most recently touring with groups including The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer, and Miss Quincy & The Showdown.

Christie is currently working on arrangements for her latest songs, preparing to embark on new recording projects in 2018.
