CORY OWENS:

Cory Owens is a songwriter from Victoria, living in Vancouver British Columbia. He grew up listening to the likes of Supertramp, Jann Arden, Shania Twain, Bob Marley, Van morrison, Warren G, Eminem, Big Shiny Tunes 4, The Backstreet Boys, Now That’s What I Call Music 5, Much Dance 2000 and Coheed and Cambria. But perhaps his biggest musical influence is a cassette of Phil Collins’ 1989 album “...but seriously”, which he fell asleep listening to countless nights as a child. He continues to listen to a variety of music searching for “that feeling”. The same feeling he strives to put into his own songs. “My grandpa once told me, if it doesn't have feeling, then it doesn't have anything. That really stuck with me.” said Cory, in a recent interview with Dad Joke Magazine. These days you can find him driving around Vancouver, bringing cold fresh beer to thousands. But later on, when the kegs have settled, he’s probably turning a feeling into a song somewhere, hoping to share it with you.

WHELMING:

Bohemian rock music for the over-worked and under-stimulated. In 2017, singer/guitarist Erik Severinson released his first album of solo music under the name Whelming. The 'Where You Are Now' EP was written and recorded out of love, and without expectation. There were no plans to perform those songs as a band, or to follow up the release with any new material. Fast-forward to 2019 and Whelming is performing loudly and proudly as a three-piece rock outfit in and around Vancouver. Expect to be drawn in by the subtle complexity and raw power of this up-and-coming rock band.
