About this Event

For his eagerly-awaited sophomore album, songwriter William Prince begins with single word, Reliever, which informs a collection of exceptionally rendered explorations of what, who and how peace is found. Relievers come in all forms; for Prince, it is song. With its emphasis on words and confidently unfussed accompaniment, Reliever puts Prince’s gift for sparking powerful emotions of both personal and communal relevance at the fore.

A masterclass in skillful simplicity, Reliever works a generous and profound kind of magic.Prince’s influences and references, from the gospel of his childhood to Christopher Wallace’s sermons of a different sort, the pantheon of classic outlaw country singers, baseball and the great beyond, shape Reliever into a collection that approaches the big questions with humility and curiosity.

To make Reliever, Prince reconvened with producers Dave Cobb in Nashville and Scott Nolan in Winnipeg, the team behind his JUNO Award winning debut and subsequent Glassnote Records reissue, Earthly Days. With the song “Breathless,” Earthly Days introduced Prince’s poignant philosophy and rich baritone to the world. Prince’s trajectory from Peguis First National in Manitoba, Canada, to opening for Neil Young, has seen the relative newcomer find esteem and career-changing opportunity wherever he performs.

"A folk-country troubadour on the cusp" – The Globe & Mail

"Prince offers himself as an anchor for those feeling rudderless. This is the artist at his most inspirational, thankful and powerful" – Exclaim!

It’s the kind of sound many musicians take years searching for, and since the rave reception of Mariel Buckley’s acclaimed sophomore album, Driving In The Dark, she continues to set the bar for roots music in Canada. Buckley’s momentum has built quickly, and she finds herself as one of alt-country’s busiest acts, with recent performances in support of k.d. lang, Hayes Carll, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, The Deep Dark Woods and Serena Ryder; as well as entertaining audiences throughout North America.

Buckley is currently incubating and writing feverishly for her official full-length follow up: a cinematic take on her assured, semi-traditional style. Like Roy Orbison singing The War On Drugs, Marty Robbins’ gunfighter ballads dripping in the melancholy of '90s production, Buckley is set to take the world by storm with this succession to the critically acclaimed Driving In The Dark. Debilitating depression, dark mornings and bleak new beginnings; her signature candour is awash throughout a new collection of songs, to be released in 2021.

A mesmerizing performer and studious songwriter, Mariel Buckley proves that with each new endeavour, she is bound to vulnerability and truth. This signature candour is what captivates audiences and listeners alike, and has planted her flag firmly as a songwriter in it for the long haul.

"With her sun-washed, melodic Americana music, Calgary’s Mariel Buckley is poised to make her mark" – PopMatters

"Mariel Buckley is the new Loretta Lynn: Speaking her mind, offering a straight-up, no-nonsense set of songs that go back to earlier country styles"– No Depression
