Carleigh Aikins is debuting the live version of her eclectic pop/soul/rock studio album JUNK JEWELRY (featuring Marcus Paquin, Don Kerr, Brad Barr, Drew Jurecka, Evan Tighe, members of The Mynabirds, Dwayne Gretzky, Zeus). Over two decades, Aikins has appeared on countless recordings and the worlds’ biggest stages as vocalist/member of many acts including Paper Bird and John Oates, Bahamas and Jack Johnson; Jon Russel and Josiah Johnson (The Head and the Heart), Macy Gray and Galactic, Dan Mangan and La Force, Patrick Watson, Royal Wood, Rich Aucoin, Hannah Georgas, Donovan Woods, The Weather Station and Jeremie Albino (plus many others). She brings to her songwriting and performance the influence and flavours of the Artists whose work she’s contributed to- with an electrifying dynamic voice that is distinctly her own.

Folks may recognize Dave Dalrymple(Wax Atlantic) and Carleigh Aikins from the musical collective Dwayne Gretzky; and this offering they bring to the Dakota stage features members of that extended family of Toronto musicians.


Wax Atlantic is the words and music of Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist Dave Dalrymple, as realized with a rotating cast of friends and collaborators. Drawing alternately on Brit balladry, garage bombast, hymnal reverence, and neo-psych sensibilities, the Wax Atlantic catalogue features confessional, melody-driven songs that revel in hope and sorrow in equal measure.
