Michael Gresham w/ Jake Touzel
Hailing from Victoria, BC, Michael Leigh Gresham has spent the last few years weaving together emotive vocals and sounds that make you feel removed from lifes stresses. Growing up, Gresham sought inspiration from Ben Harper, Matt Costa, Jack Johnson, The Beatles, Arcade Fire, Bahamas and Lovin Spoonful. He left the coast and moved inland to Winnipeg to study Environmental Design. It was during this time that he began writing his own songs. After one year he headed further east to London, UK where he continued writing and playing music. He found himself working in the film and visual effects industry, which led him back to the beloved West Coast. He commuted to film school in Vancouver from Bowen Island everyday for two years, and used the islands inspiration to continue making music. He is now nestled in Vancouvers Railtown working on an EP that shares the essence of the island and the grit of the big cities.Jake Touzel was born in Deux-Montaignes, QC. Discovering music at the age of 13, he continues to practice and perfect his craft to this day. Drawing inspiration from artists including but not limited to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Constantines, and Jeff Buckley, Jake has developed a very unique, incomparable sound.
