Joline Baylis Album Release with The Crackling and Vi An Diep
April 13 @ 8:00 pm$15.00 - $20.00
Canadian indie folk-rock artist Joline Baylis brings her eloquent songwriting and superb band to the WISE Hall, to celebrate the release of her debut album, “Break Me Down.” The evening will feature performances by dark folk powerhouse The Crackling, and mesmerizing intuitive improviser Vi An Diep.
Joline’s meticulously crafted songs are fresh, haunting, and profoundly honest. For “Break Me Down,” she has gathered some of Vancouver’s finest musicians to create a lush sound that provides a firm foundation for the raw emotion and vulnerability of her songwriting. The album feels slightly nostalgic, with echoes of classic rock and laid-back country, yet the band plays with a chemistry and inventiveness that yields something altogether new.
Joining Joline at the WISE Hall will be:
Kenton Loewen (Dan Mangan and Blacksmith, Haram, Marin Patenaude)
Wynston Minckler (Emily Millard, Aerialists)
Paul Pigat (Cousin Harley, Neko Case)
Nick Peck (Filling in forTyson Naylor)
