March 31st Double Bill: Isabelle Young Trio & John Speed Band

Isabelle Young Trio

Isabelle Young is a Montreal based singer/songwriter who has been surrounded by music since her early childhood. She was raised in a small town in a musical family that includes the great Karen Young and her daughter, Coral Egan. Inspiration is abundant in her early years, where she draws influences from her family and the many different musical genres played around her home. After completing her vocal jazz performance and composition studies, she began writing her own music. Retaining her schooled and distinctive vocal sound, she crafted new original material that draws from her alternative, jazz and electro/pop influences. Isabelle Young’s debut EP Sirens includes six of her original compositions dealing with the turbulent effects of falling in and out of love. Driven by Isabelle’s striking vocal clarity, honest lyrics and the lush, moody sounds of the musicians, Sirens offers an emotional experience. Sirens is a waterfront of human relationships. Since it’s release in 2014, Sirens has created waves in the UK. Young was the Audition Poll Winner on Amazing Radio and has captured the attention of influential music blogs such as Crack In The Road. The title track of the EP was also played on Sirius XM and 94.7 Hits FM. In early 2016, Isabelle appeared on Québec french television show La Voix, where she competed on Pierre Lapointe’s team and met influential artist, Diane Tell. She also represented Montreal this Spring in CBC’s Searchlight competition, where she was among the top 25 regional finalists with her song Sirens. Today, she is working on a new album that is set to be released next Spring 2017.

John Speed Band

ABOUT JOHN SPEED John Speed is a Canadian singer songwriter, originally from Winnipeg, grew up in Montreal, and now lives in the Châteauguay Valley, in the heart of Quebec’s artistic and musical scene. Wise, soft spoken, unsettled and still searching, John’s music takes shape through lyrics that grasp the essential truths often hidden in life’s awakenings. His thick and soulful sounds bring light to uncharted territory where his melodic quest is most welcome. It is an intimate experience with music that soothes the soul !

No More Cowboys Travel through time and space, human frailty, hope, and love sublime. Picked and tailored from more than a decade of writing, hear these fruitful culminations of life experiences in song. See through a window of insightful honesty. Feel the blanketing effect of the vocals set into instrumentation that instills a comfortable rubato groove … Steer away from short-term gratification and re-discover the depth of soul music. The John Speed Band plays the music of singer songwriter John Speed. Nicole Poissant, vocalist; Roger Coderre, double bassist; Joëlle Lanoix, percussionist and vocalist; each bring their own wash of colours to the music. Performed and recorded at Island Time Studio. Mixed and mastered by Padraig Buttner. If you are pressed for time, track (3) Holy Shame, (12) Take Me In, (13) Rolling Sun, should give you an idea of the musical diversity of the album.
