About this Event

Brielle Ansems

Born in Hamilton, Ontario and raised in Montague, PEI, Brielle has grown up with music on her lips and a creativity fostered by the Island’s artistic community. Now a Charlottetown based singer-songwriter and actor, Brielle fuses folk with pop and r&b influences to create an emotionally charged, poetic experience for her audiences. Notable performances have included both opening for and sharing the stage with the likes of Ben Caplan, Liam Corcoran, Tim Chaisson, Matthew Barber, and Adyn Townes. She graduates this spring from the Holland College School of Performing Arts Theatre Performance program, and her debut album, This New Hurricane, will be released this summer.

JERRY LEGER

"Jerry Leger has that spark in him that all the great songwriters have. He's the real deal." - Ron Sexsmith

"Time Out for Tomorrow has the compelling stories and great energy that I've come to rely on from this talented and prolific songwriter. Take the time to listen to Jerry Leger!" - Doug Paisley

Time Out For Tomorrow continues Jerry Leger’s run of consistently high output and displays the finely honed artistic vision that has been evident since 2005 when, at age 19, he released the first of nine studio albums, along with three more with his side projects The Del-Fi’s and The Bop-Fi’s. It’s added up to a body of work that was recently celebrated with the European-only compilation Too Broke To Die, aimed at Leger’s growing fan base in Britain and the EU. Most of those listeners didn’t discover Leger until his 2014 album Early Riser, his first with Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies handling production duties, as well as the first to be released on the Junkies’ label, Latent Recordings. The combination of Timmins’ capture-the-moment production aesthetic and the Rolling Thunder-esque chemistry of Leger’s longtime band The Situation (plus a few special guests) now appears unbeatable. And although Time Out For Tomorrow may not be as expansive as Leger’s previous Timmins-produced effort, the acclaimed 2017 double album Nonsense And Heartache, its more concentrated dose of everything Leger does best is just as potent. Songwriters such as Ron Sexsmith, Doug Paisley and outlets such as Rolling Stone, PopMatters and the Toronto Star have sung Leger’s praises. He’s also shared stages with The Sadies, Justin Townes Earle, Deer Tick, Tift Merritt, Dawes, and others.

“When snow falls in hell you’ll come around you’ll put the bottle down.”

With one line you are introduced to the simple, elegant music of PEI singer & songwriter, Scott MacKay. MacKay’s country-ish songs are standouts, riddled with one-liners that sparkle like rhinestones on a Nudie suit.

Scott MacKay was raised in a house that straddles the line between city and country, with farmland in the back and a view of the city in front. If a place has any influence on an artist, then this may be where MacKay began to develop his attraction to contrast. Since the release of MacKay’s most recent offering “Twin” he has been dedicating much of his time on writing, and in doing so has found himself creating songs that are very much antithetical to what he has done in the past. Songs that do not evoke teardrops but rather smiles. Songs that make you think while wearing a grin.
