East Vancouver artists Beastie and Mary Matheson are joining forces with Cumberland singer/songwriter, Seraphina Mountain and piling into her Westy! The three will be slinging their sultry folk weirdo tunes up the coast of Vancouver island as well as on Pender and Salt Spring. Come get your ears charmed off!
Born and raised in Vancouver BC, Beastie recorded her first demo at 15 and has been a professional singer/songwriter for over 15 years, with a wide variety of styles of gigs in Canada, Central America, the US and Europe. Her performance style is intimate and sincere – An often eccentrically costumed blend of blues, old country, soul, folk and heartbreak with a sense of humour. She is currently working on a new album set to be released in the coming year.
Plucking a ukulele from the front seat of a 88’ Westfalia, Seraphina Mountain grew from the artist roots of Salt Spring Island. Inspired by the vast oceans and towering mountains, an element of the west coast and whimsy can be found within their music. Often a two piece but also performing as a solo act, there is a dynamic quality and sometimes haunting feeling that follows the band’s sound. www.soundcloud.com/seraphinamountain
