The Oh Wells with Jordan Carrier & the Soviets, The Boney King of Nowhere and Bumpin Uglys
The Oh Wells
The Oh Wells began with acne, corrective dental wear, and the inability to look the opposite sex in the eye without panicking and/or falling in love. In other words, the Oh Wells began with high school. At sixteen, Sarah Jickling was your average super-shy suburban teen. She spent most of her time baking cupcakes, re-reading the Harry Potter series and quoting Meg Ryan. Then, one day, everything changed. Sarah and one of her super-shy friends decided to start a band. Flash forward to now and the Oh Wells are CITR Shindig winners, EMP Soundoff finalists, and were in the Peak Performance Project top twenty! In 2012, the band ventured on their first tour across Canada, and are now preparing for a new album to be released in 2013. Sarah is currently a redhead.
White Rock local favourite Jordan Carrier has continued to be a critical hit, gaining rave reviews from local media on his last two albums. Entering the winners circle of the Fox's Seeds Competition, his song "Club People" became one of the most requested songs on the Fox which led to opening slots for Daniel Wesley, Wide Mouth Mason and The Odds and a place on the coveted Commodore stage. His most recent album Jordan Carrier & The Soviets was critically acclaimed locally with Tom Zillich commenting on its “…Beatles inspired melodic creativity” and Stuart Derdeyn saying “it’s hard to not replay the brilliant “To Here,” just to hear its gorgeous chorus break repeat.”
Bony King of Nowhere
Hailing from Belgium, The Bony King of Nowhere is the critically acclaimed musical project of alternative singer/songwriter Bram Vanparys. His album Alas My Love (2009) was released in association with EMI and along with the critical success of the record, he also scored a top ten hit on the Belgian album charts. Comparisons were drawn to similarly styled contemporary English-language alternative singer/songwriters such as Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, and Devendra Banhart.
Happy-go-lucky, old-timey rock n' roll can best describe the Bumpin' Uglys. Originally formed in the Okanagan, Kahlied Salem (drummer), Code Andrusko (lead guitarest and singer) and Josh Gatien (guitarest and singer) added bassist Pierce Kingan and classically trained pianist Hong Yeung to the band after moving to Vancouver. These boys thrive on high-energy, outgoing stage shows that should do more than arouse audiences.
