Bradford Loomis made his debut in Canada &
at Bozzini’s in November of 2015 and instantly became a favourite of
everyone in the audience. He finally returns to kick-off our 2017
concert season with a full show January 4. Get your tickets quick.
Had he lived one hundred and fifty years
ago, Loomis may have been riding rail cars out west or sailing down the
Mississippi on a paddle boat. Or maybe he would have claimed his stake
in the flat lands of the Midwest. Perhaps he would have plied his hand
on a ranch in Texas.
Born in the Northwest in more modern
times, Loomis has lived to tell a different, but no less exciting, tale.
Through years of choir, band and orchestra he discovered a powerful
kinship to the songs and stories of those bygone eras as they helped
show him a meaningful way to tell his story.
Bradford Loomis marries grit and melody to dig to the roots of American
folklore and speak of the raw reality of the human condition with
passion. His stories span several lifetimes of relatable emotions;
bitterness & loss, deep longing & regret, enduring hope & love, elation

The music that flows out of him is so
natural and authentic that it’s possible to forget all of the toil that
went into producing it.
Over the past two decades, Steve Dawson
has become such an indelible fixture on the Canadian musical landscape
that it’s tempting to take him for granted. The music that flows out of
him is so natural and authentic that it’s possible to forget all of the
toil that went into producing it.
Behind the seemingly endless stream of award winning musical output (he
has produced and/or played on more than 80 albums since the turn of the
millennium, 7 of which have won Juno Awards), is one of the hardest
working musicians this country has ever produced. Whether he’s turning
heads on the concert circuit with his incendiary playing, or pulling the
best possible performances out of the many artists that he works with in
the studio, Dawson is always striving to take things to the next level.
A native of Vancouver, Canada, but currently residing in Nashville,
where he works as a solo artist, sideman, and record producer, Steve has
forged an impressive career full of highlights and awards, including:
•7 Juno Awards as artist/producer, 18
•3 times named “Producer Of The Year” at Western Canadian Music
•3 times named “Producer Of The Year” at Canadian Folk Music Awards
•Recipient of many other awards including Maple Blues Awards, Grand
Prix De Jazz De Montreal, Blues Blast Awards, and many Western
Canadian Music Awards and Canadian Folk Awards as an artist and
Steve’s multi-faceted career has brought
him to countless international festivals, working on the stage and in
the studio with an extensive cast of musicians, including John Hammond,
Sonny Landreth, Van Dyke Parks, Colin James, Jim Byrnes, Jill Barber,
Dave Alvin, Bob Brozman, Tim O’Brien, Fats Kaplin, Colin James, Colleen
Rennison,The McCrary Sisters, Matt Chamberlain, Del Rey, Long John
Baldry, Bruce Cockburn, Kelly Joe Phelps, Linda McRae, CR Avery, Alvin
Youngblood Hart, Geoff Muldaur, Scott Amendola, Danny Barnes, The Deep
Dark Woods, Colin Linden, and many others.
He sees production as an exciting step in the creative journey that a
song takes from its beginning as a songwriter’s idea to a final recorded
product. The producer has to understand the music and be able to know
what will open possibilities in it. Being a musician is not essential,
but it helps, and Dawson brings enviable chops to his work. He also owns
a vast collection of unusual instruments, many of which he plays on the
recordings he helps to craft – modern electric instruments find
themselves blended in with weissenborns, marxophones, pedal steel, pump
organs and other odd antique instruments.
Steve’s studio, The Henhouse, located in Nashville (and previously in
Vancouver) has hosted countless artists and been the home to over 80
releases. With a beautifully warm and organic setting to stay and
record, it promises to become a destination for many more to come.
Between producing projects for other artists, Steve has recorded music
of his own that has explored blues, jazz, Hawaiian, rock, and
experimental music. Starting with 2001’s award-winning acoustic “Bug
Parade”, he next explored blues and Hawaiian influences in depth with
“We Belong To The Gold Coast” in 2005. 2008 saw the release of 2 albums
– “Telescope” which was the culmination of studies with Greg Leisz and
featured music written for the pedal steel guitar, and “Waiting For The
Lights To Come Up”, a collection of new songs. He followed that with
2011’s acclaimed “Nightshade”, which Acoustic Guitar magazine named to
it’s Top-10 guitar albums of the year. 2014’s “Rattlesnake Cage” – was
an award-winning exploration of solo acoustic and slide guitar. Dawson’s
latest release, 2016’s “Solid States and Loose Ends” is a mesmerizing
collection of new, original songs played with a band made up of some of
the finest players from Canada and Nashville. Critically-acclaimed, it
has been hailed as Dawson’s finest work to date and has earned glowing
reviews from all over the world.
