Sam Tudor / Kirsten Ludwig
SAM TUDOR Tudor grew up at a forest research station, developing an affinity for both plants and outdated technology in the process. His 2014 album “The Modern New Year” was a campus radio hit and earned him a cult following across the country. Soon after, Sam began playing with a stellar live band and their album Quotidian Dream was released in September 2017 to critical acclaim in Western Canada and beyond. The Georgia Straight called it “a gem... with a penchant for everything left field” while Beatroute magazine describes it as “beautifully self aware, sonically interesting, and masterful.” Sam is a poignant, clear songwriter with experimental leanings that he proudly wears on his sleeve.
KIRSTEN LUDWIG We Get It Now’, Kirsten Ludwig's third release, is an infusion of dream-pop, haunt-folk, and Canadiana; with its low-key atmosphere, thoughtful arrangements, and honest sound guiding the way. With influences like Beach House, Laura Marling, and Sharon Van Etten, Ludwig set out to produce a record - alongside Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Sleepy Sun) - with strong melodic structures, catchy hooks, and soaring dynamic soundscapes. ‘We Get It Now’ is anchored by themes of loss, grief, fleeting optimism, and residual anger. $15 door $12 advance
