In 2008, Daniela Gesundheit of Snowblink moved from California to Toronto, irreversibly altering Snowblink from a whimsical warm-weather band touting four male backup singers to the current acclaimed duo with Dan Goldman (Luxury Pond). Snowblink quickly became “one of the most compelling new voices on the Canadian scene” (CBC) as 2010 saw them opening up for Owen Pallett, Timber Timbre, and The Hidden Cameras on extended tours throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. Gesundheit also toured extensively through Canada as part of the Toronto band Bruce Peninsula, and recently participated in the National Parks Project trip to Cape Breton alongside Tony Dekker (Great Lake Swimmers) and Chris Leudecke (Old Man Leudecke). Snowblink’s debut record, Long Live, was recorded in California, Toronto, and Brooklyn, bringing together Gesundheit’s far-reaching communities. The collaborators and guest appearances on the record include Jay Pellicci (Deerhoof), Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Vetiver), Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), Frank Lyon (Keepaway), and Ryan Driver. Though Snowblink is currently a Toronto-based duo, the line-up of Snowblink past has been known to expand to include other extended community members — MGMT as backup singers, Frank Lyon (Keepaway), Caley Monahon-Ward (Extra Life), and Ryan Driver among them.

Legendary secret Toronto genius Alex Lukashevsky (Deep Dark United) preforms his solo compositions with a trio of singers. Quirky avant blues, jazz inspired weirdo compositions unfold as Alex playfully navigates the acoustic guitar and juxtoposes his grizzly voice against those of his crooning female back up singers. They interact playfully as Alex sing talks his tales. Sometimes accompanying his instrumentation the singers act as an extension of Alex’s imagination. Singing from the heart, but never forgetting the joker in his mind. One of Toronto’s best kept secrets!

Del Bel began in early 2010 as the recording project of Tyler Belluz. Throughout the 18 months of Oneiric’s development, the contributing musicians agreed that the music should be launched in live form. Experienced and diversified veterans of Toronto’s music scene, each band member brings unique, experimental and earnest musicality. Del Bel has become a collaborative collective, drawing players from such groups as Do Make Say Think, Broken Social Scene, Ohbijou, Entire Cities, Sun Parlour Players, Kite Hill, and others. Stylistically, Del Bel embodies an eerie cinematic sound infused with darkened soul and surf rock qualities. This show marks the release of their debut L ‘Oneiric’.
