EAMON McGRATH w/ NICK FAYE
October 1, 9:00 PM
At 23, Eamon McGrath has a list of accomplishments under his belt that would echo that of a writer twice his age: 250+ songs written and recorded, album of the year credits, multiple tours through the UK, Canada and Europe, and stints playing in the backing bands for both the legendary Daniel Johnston and Julie Doiron.
McGrath’s style is constantly changing and his shows range from sweaty, bombastic, punk and noisy garage-rock inspired barnburners, to quiet, intimate country best fit for a Western saloon. In the span of a single concert, and sometimes in the span of a song, heart-wrenching confessional lyrics pave the highway towards string-shredding guitar solos and an adolescent howl like no other.
Nick Faye is a musician from the dusty metropolis of Regina, SK. After composing his first songs at the age of 16, music took root in Faye like a wild prairie flower. A collection of EP's and basement recordings followed. "The Last Best West" is Faye's latest full-band offering that was released on Urban Planning Records on May 5, 2011.
