885 Bank Street
feat. Tim Jackson
Campbell Woods released his debut record, "Oxford Street" in the spring of April 2017. He's been on the road ever since, performing everywhere from Vancouver to Halifax to Nashville to Austin. As a songwriter he's been compared to the likes of Townes Van Zandt and John K. Sampson. Powerful songs, simply delivered. "Oxford Street" debuted at no. 4 on the earshot folk/roots radio charts and has been nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award....
Jack Pine is the leader and songwriter of Irene’s favs Jack Pine and The Fire. The heat is still smouldering from the release of their 2nd full-length album “Left to Our Own Devices” which quickly became one of CKCU’s Top 3 albums of 2017 and led to the recent solo “Lone Wolf” solo Tour.
Jack Pine performs original alt-folk singer-songery that reveals the beauty in the wreck and the heart within the wretch. Known as the Lone Wolf, he howls and spits biting folk lyricism while his mandolin delivers the most furious of rhythms and the softest of melodies alike.
