Inaugural Winner of the 2005 BWA Nina Simone Award, contemporary jazz vocalist/composer Adele M. Wilding and her trio will perform a sophisticated blend of jazz standards and originals at this evening’s The Gallery Sessions at Queen’s Park.

A graduate of the Jazz and Popular Music Program at the UOL Goldsmiths College, Wilding’s rich vocals have made her an audience favourite on both sides of the Atlantic. To date, she has released four commercial recordings. Recent highlights include three tours across Western Canada and a Christmas release of the Bruce Cockburn classic, ‘Shepherds’.

In addition to her many performances in Vancouver, Wilding was Creative Director of and performer in the Dixon Divas Benefit Concert, an event that included Dee Daniels and Gabriel Mark Hasselbach as special guest artists. She produced and performed in the Canada 150 show ‘A Celebration of Canadian Singer-Songwriters’, which featured a collaboration with Darlene Ketchum. Wilding also appeared as Guest Vocalist for the Miles Black Trio in the Canada 150 ‘Tribute to Oscar Peterson’. An advocate of jazz worship series, Wilding has performed at Jazz Evensong at The Sanctuary in Brentwood, Burnaby and at the North Shore Jazz Vespers at St. Andrew’s United Church, North Vancouver.

Miss Wilding is currently writing and touring her ‘Caribbean & Blue’ project, a collection of works that fuse contemporary jazz with Caribbean and Latin influences, whilst celebrating the colour blue. Plans to record the project will commence in 2019.

Exceptional singer…challenging and engaging arrangements…” Keith Ames, Musician Magazine

From the Düben Collection: Music that deserves to be heard

The extraordinary Düben Collection contains over 2,000 manuscripts of 17th and early-18th century music by more than 300 European composers, collected by members of the Düben family and donated to Uppsala University in 1732. The collection is thought to include the music library of the Royal Swedish Court, where four of the Dübens served as kapellmeisters from 1640 to 1726.

La Modestine (Marc Destrubé and Linda Melsted, violins, Natalie Mackie, viola da gamba, and Michael Jarvis, harpsichord and organ) will perform a selection of rarely-heard gems from the collection, including sonatas by Buxtehude, Becker and Reincken.

Featuring Matt Gibson

Matt is a Canadian indie/folk artist from Ottawa, ON, currently living in New Westminster, BC. He started teaching himself how play guitar and sing in 2010. With interest in artists like Elliott Smith, Ben Howard and Bryan John Appleby, among other folk/indie musicians, he began to learn some of their music, while continuously working on his own. He began performing for close friends which motivated him to pursue music more seriously. From there, he continued honing his skills while studying at Metalworks Institute in Toronto, ON, and graduated from the Audio Engineering and Production program in 2013. With a better understanding of the technical recording side of sound, he began to utilize that knowledge on his own music. Upon moving to Vancouver in 2015, he met many fellow musicians that eventually pushed him towards finishing his first album. A Trip to Remember, A Place to Forget, his debut album, was recorded in the summer of 2017 at Howl Studio in Oakville, ON. The album draws from his initial folk and indie influences but also from recent interest in ambient/post-rock artists like Hammock and Sigur Ros.

Featuring Bryan Anderson with Yuki Shimono

Bryan Field Anderson was born in Willowdale, Ontario and now lives in New Westminster, British Columbia. He is a teacher of English as a Second Language at International House Vancouver and a singer/songwriter having produced four albums to date – the first two with Bryan Anderson & The Keys, a third with Beat Seeking Missiles, and a solo album. Bryan likes a good musical project; he says it keeps him focused. From ‘Game On’, a song created to inspire Canadian athletes in Sochi, to ‘On The Edge Of Heaven’, a contest submission for the Rocky Mountaineer, which won him and his wife two first-class tickets on the fabled train, Bryan is always on the lookout for his next project to pour himself into. Bryan’s most recent project saw him switch from piano, his first instrument, to guitar ( an instrument he’s always wanted to play). With his new guitar in hand, Bryan set out to complete his most ambitious project: a song for Canada containing 150 references. His song, aptly titled We’re Canadian, is matched to a video slideshow taking the listener (and/or viewer) on a virtual journey far and wide.

Bryan has receded from the public eye in recent years preferring to work ‘behind the scenes’. He continues to hone his song-writing craft, though, with the hope of finding the right song and selling it to the right artist. April 25 at Queen’s Park will be a rare sighting for anyone wishing to see Bryan live in concert. He is, however, looking forward to the opportunity to share his music with the people of his adopted home.

Featuring George T Montebruno

Coming from a family of music lovers and musicians, and being the youngest of 7 siblings, George grew up in Montreal surrounded by music at all times. From Classical to The Beatles.  His father sang opera and would quiz George daily on what was playing on the radio. Music started popping into his head at a very early age, but didn’t know that it was from his own subconscious or imagination until he was 6. He thought he could sing but due to being a shy child, he did not sing in public until his senior year of high school where he was pushed to participate in a talent show and won 1st place.

At that time, his family moved to Chile, and he started a cover band, but after one show he discarded covers and started playing the dozens of songs he had already written. After writing a couple of hundred songs, he started a band called Beerfly with university mates, which lasted 5 years, made 2 indie albums, and had a large and devoted following. Realizing there was something in those songs, that made people he didn’t even know and that didn’t even know English, sing along to his lyrics at shows, he decided to return to Canada and start again and try from scratch. Which leads to 2Days&Counting, who have been playing together for 7 years. 

George is seen around New West every week hitting any open mic, or having his own solo shows.
