Eamon McGrath, Amy Nelson and Lucid 44

$10

Eamon McGrath
With over 300 songs written and recorded, album of the year credits, and multiple continent-spanning tours, Eamon McGrath has developed a body of work that could rival that of any artist 15 years his senior. This is the house that punk rock built: a fierce DIY attitude and constantly-changing style has guided McGrath across the globe on countless tours, stories from which have been cultivated in innumerable journal entries and song lyrics. He is based in Toronto, Ontario.

With over 100,000 kilometres of highway, railroad and sky behind him, McGrath continues to blaze an impassioned trail of music that finds a sound and voice somewhere between punk rock, country, folk and rock and roll. Taking him to locations as geographically diverse as Reykjavik, Palma de Majorca, Warsaw, and everywhere in between, McGrath and his guitar represent a new dawn of singer-songwriting that’s injected with the raw, fierce energy of punk rock: not in the sense of an acoustic performer hollering at the top of his lungs to simulate the energy of a full band, but instead something more rooted in a passionate commitment to your craft and a blind and zealous determination to your vision, wrapped in a sonic texture as rough as the road itself.

Amy Nelson
The sweet, sad longing and play of words and phrases, delivered in a voice from days far gone; holding the plaintive echoes of the struggles of women who bore the weight of abject sorrow and hardships, reaching through the ages and channeled through this figure of a girl. Amy Nelson’s songs display a veracity and rawness that is uniquely her own.
Amy is also known for her visual art presence and prose with a following of over 60,000 on instagram.

Lucid 44
Markus Overland, the creative force behind Lucid 44, is a real Calgary original, and there may be no other songwriter that has come from this town that has possessed such an idiosyncratic creative voice. Lucid 44 is folk that takes a dark turn, and this validates the fact that you don’t need a good time to have fun. – https://m.sledisland.com/2019/lucid-44
