Oh Hey Royal City Lovelies!
Here it is Vol.6 of the Royal City Music Series!! We are thrilled for all the rockin’ magic that will ensue as the dreamiest bands join us at the The ebar on March 17th. f*ck yeah!
Featuring: Run Coyote, Let’s Just Be Friends, & Charlotte Cornfield
Run Coyote is a Canadian rock ‘n’ roll band. The band evokes dark backwoods and haunted city streets through twanged guitar, vocal harmonies, melodic bass, and swing and break beats. Run Coyote is brothers Sam (vocals, guitar) and Jake Allen (guitar), Amanda Grant (bass, vocals), and Jeremy Ramos-Foley (drums). Their dynamic live show is not to be missed.
“A savvy combination of swinging 50’s beats, country twang and hometown rock ‘n’ roll”
– The Deli Magazine
//Let’s Just Be Friends//
Let’s Just Be Friends is a candid, four-piece folk/pop collective formed amongst friends and family in Guelph, Ontario.
As we forge on in our mutual endeavour to resist the constraints of folk music (or a least the general understanding of the genre), we find ourselves struggling to classify our style and we hesitate to tie it to any recognized categorical name. Instead we prefer to provide our own nomenclature. So when asked, “What type of music do you play?” we find it best to be simple, polite, forthright and slightly tongue-in-cheek:
We play folk-fuck.
Sarah Gabriel – vocals, guitar, drums, Teo Schwartzentruber – cello, Katrin Sawatzky – vocals, guitar, keyboard, glockenspiel, drums, & Jordan Gabriel – vocals, guitar, keyboard, glockenspiel, drums.
Charlotte Cornfield describes herself as a “song farmer.” At 27, the Toronto native has already been releasing music under her own name for 10 years, and penning verses for longer than she can remember. A clever and innovative lyricist, she exists in the same continuum as progenitors of song like Bob Dylan and Neil Young, as well as more contemporary writers such as Courtney Barnett, Angel Olsen and Will Oldham. Vocally, Cornfield stakes out her own territory; by turns a lived-in, streetwise drawl, an octave-sweeping falsetto, and a comfortably crooning alto.
“Unpretentious, clever and direct folk rock that’s so big-hearted it hurts, every time Cornfield straps on a six-string, you just know that Joni Mitchell is smiling somewhere.”
