The Roxy Cabaret, Nimbus School of Recording & Media & Budweiser present:
The Roxy Launch Project Showcase #7
Featuring Westwinds and Komodo Wagon
Thursday, August 4th 2016
Westwinds is a music project by Vancouver folk artist Gareth McDonnell.
While serving in the Royal Canadian Navy, Gareth re-kindled his love for creating and performing songs while playing with his crew mates aboard HMCS Ottawa during his numerous sails.
The newly refurbished hobby quickly became obsession, and before his eventual release from the military, he had begun the first recordings to be featured on his debut release: 'The EP'.
The EP is an alluring, melodic and sonically satisfying 4-track record. Each song tells a new tale of longing, heartbreak, or coming of age built upon his experiences in work and life.
Gareth McDonnell and Producer Greg Drummond teamed up with few simple instruments and bright ideas to provide each listener with quality music good for anything from dancing, to the song that helps you fall asleep.
Not Metal, but the Metalheads might like it. Not Punk, but the Oi's might dig it. Not Indie, but it's fun to see a Waif Rock Out. Not Hardcore, cause they ain't rich kids. Not Glam, cause nobody can top Ziggy and Bolan. Not Grunge cause most of those guys are dead.
