Sam Weber is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in the vein of Jackson Browne, The Band, The Wood Brothers and Gillian Welch.He has released two LPs to date — 2014’s Shadows in the Road and 2016’s Valentina Nevada — as well as his recent digital EP New Agile Freedom (to be issued on vinyl this summer through Sonic Unyon Records). Through the characters and anecdotes in his songs,Weber’s sings about the truths of love, life and family. Touring independently and internationally with his band since 2013, the years spent refining songs at home in North Saanich, BC and working in studios in Los Angeles have honed his craft to a fine point. His live show, which local audiences may remember from his killer opening night set at Supercrawl 2018, pairs heartfelt songwriting with world-class musicianship and three-part harmony. Sam usually plays with Marshall Wildman on drums, Jacob Weil on bass and sometimes Chris Van Sickle on piano.
“I think the song of the year is ‘Ex-Lover’ by Sam Weber” – Afie Jurvanen, Bahamas
“Sam Weber’s expansive blend of roots influences is a testament to fierce ambition.” – Anil Prasad, Guitar Player Magazine
“Some guys can sing. Some guys can play guitar. Some guys can write songs. Some guys know their way around the recording studio. Then there are guys like Sam Weber. He’s one of those guys who can do it all.” – Darryl Sterdan, Tinnitist
For the past year and a half, Gareth Inkster has been gradually establishing himself as a regular in the Hamilton music scene. Having spent the better part of a decade performing extensively with many local artists, he has now focused his attention on his own act. The result is comprised of three singles and an EP, to date, as well as a second EP slotted for later in 2019. Having mixed up their live arrangement, Inkster, along with his band, have achieved a tight, vibey, yet high-energy set which has been garnering high praise with each showing. It’s early days for this ensemble, but the future is more than promising.
