ABOUT THE BANDS
HOLLOWSAGE | @hollowsagemusic
Sept 3rd, 2022 | 6–8 PM
Funeral director by day, songwriter by night, Sagen Pearse’s life lessons, stories from past lives, and alternate dimensions penetrate each song he writes. Sagen’s unique perspective on life, love, and death create songs that really make you think of your own morality and mortality. Hollowsage along with his band The Three Mile Islanders, composed of long-time friends Kevin Ker, Justin Dillon, Matt Gunn, and Joshua Veens, manages to build huge crescendos and beautiful melodies while still directing attention towards the lyrics that carry the songs. Hollowsage & the Three Mile Islanders recently won Album of the Year for their debut 2020 release of “Nuclear Home” and Emerging Artist of the Year at this year’s OMAs.

Philadelphia’s Jerome Tucker is a lead vocalist and bassist who joined the US Navy, ending-up in the Gulf Coast and moonlighting for various Blues and Cajun artists. Following the Navy, he co-wrote songs with Ivan Neville, moved to Chicago and performed with the city’s greats. Today, Tucker calls Toronto home, playing with his own band: Carl Harvey (guitar), Unionville’s Rob Christian (sax, flute & keys), Kingsley Etienne (B3), Neil Brathwaite (sax) and Rich Greenspoon (drums). The result is a polished explosion of funky soulful blues that’s made them a true favourite on the local scene.

BERNADETTE CONNORS | @bernadetteconnors
Sept 24th, 2022 | 6-8 PM
Bernadette’s style is truly authentic and pays no attention to what conformities the industry demands. She had developed a dynamic and expressive vocal range, earnest and emotional lyrics, and playful interpretation of song-craft. Her full-length album “Monarch” was produced by Canada’s own John-Angus MacDonald (guitarist for The Trews) and recorded during the pandemic. It touches on the magic of small-town Ontario and highlights the importance of one’s local community. Her new music has a unique, yet classic sound that’s been missing in this country and can truly be described as Canadiana. Featuring some of Canada’s top musicians and a voice that sounds just as good on stage as it does on the recording, Bernadette takes listeners on an intimate and exciting journey that resonates with audiences of all ages.
CONOR GAINS | @conorgains
Sept 24th, 2022 | 9-11 PM
Born and raised in Cambridge, ON, Conor Gains grew up in a musical household. After taking lessons in violin and piano as a child, he developed an appreciation for the guitar; observing a wide range of artists, from Bob Dylan and George Harrison to Jimi Hendrix and the Allman Brothers, all of which helped shape his early writing and musicianship. The 27-year-old singer-songwriter, instrumentalist, and producer makes music that evolves freely because it’s been crafted outside of the box — effortlessly synthesizing the unmistakable warmth of Classic Soul and Modern R&B, with the soaring melodies of Psychedelic Southern Rock and Pop and bound together with the precision of an artist with an ear for Jazz. It’s both timeless and distinctly of the times; the product of a skilled artist whose deeply soulful and unyielding voice anchors a medley of sounds; the result of a musician with an earnest curiosity in the world, and whose lyrics reveal a salt-of-the-earth honesty.
