|SCENE AND HEARD showcases the independent music scene here in Vancouver.
With over 36,000+ artists, boasting more than 150,000+ tracks, the CBC Music/CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. With that massive library along with tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.
In what is becoming a pretty awesome tradition, the Biltmore is hosting another “Song of…” series featuring some of Vancouver’s best singers, songwriters, and bands. This week they have TWO nights of Neil Young songs for you to check out. Night One (April 22) features Skye Wallace, Rolla Olak, Lydia Hol, David Newberry, Shuyler Jansen, Redbird, The Reckoners, and Heard It In The Mountains – while Night Two (April 23) has Louise Burns, Jordan Klassen, Johnny De Courcy, War Baby, Failing, Dominique Fricot, The Wild North, and Altered By Mom.
I put together a playlist with most of the artists so you can get a preview of their voices and imagine them singing your favourite Neil Young songs. Click below to hear the playlist!:
