To celebrate the release of their new album, Let's Call It a Day. Tickets redeemable for digital download code upon attendance.
Let's Call It a Day is a minimal and intimate, jazz-inspired guitar/voice duo featuring the compositions and sweet yet strong vocals of emerging artist Renée Yoxon with the stark and beautiful arrangements of veteran guitarist René Gely. The release concert will also feature the brilliant Montreal guitarist Mike Rud.
This is Yoxon's debut album. It showcases her clear and unembellished lyrical delivery, poignant song choice, and emotionally charged performance. Using a wide variety of guitars, Yoxon and Gely create atmospheric, folk-influenced interpretations of jazz standards.
Some of Yoxon's tracks have been getting play on CBC's All in a Day with Alan Neal, and CBC's Bandwidth with Amanda Putz. On Bandwidth, Yoxon's The Look of Love was named track of the day on August 31.
