Vicki Brittle and Graven In Concert

Northern Ramble Concerts presents Vicki Brittle and Graven In Concert - Doors 7:30pm, Music 8pm - Tickets $20

Vicki Brittle... Intimate, Raw, and New to Solo musicianship. With many recent changes in life's journey, and a new album released on May 4th, Vicki takes a new direction and embraces Folk/Roots Rock as a solo musician. Vicki provides emotion and healing through her music. Allow yourself to be lost in the music and carefully placed lyrics, as Vicki shares her stories. Vicki's goal is to see smiles, and feel connection throughout a room when her lyrics are shared. Writing since the age of 9, Vicki has developed as an indie singer-songwriter since the age of 15. Playing guitar and piano, uke and foot tambourine, Vicki holds her music's hand with lyrics from the heart.

Growing up, once-rapper Nepean white kid Matty ‘Graven’ McKechnie was a massive teen listener of J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), Stephen Malkmus (Pavement), Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin and old school hip-hop. Having played in suburban garage bands since his mid-teens, he began to adapt and progress with the shifting musical terrain around him while still staying true to his idyllic influences. Graven’s songs are truly atmospheric, raw, passionate, personal and rare – and with a wild, rotating and circus-like band of hyper-talented individuals backing him (including his band The Dirty Hustle), his music generates interest and intensity. Having opened for and shared stage space with such artists as Dave Gunning, Tanya Davis, JD Edwards, The Wooden Sky, The Good Lovelies, Steve Poltz and Al Tuck, Graven is an active player in a few different collectives, and a consistent guitarist and vocalist for Lanark, Ontario songstress & up and comer Ali McCormick.

Delicate picking gives way to powerful strumming. Melodic whispers ascend into a booming chorus. Songs about lasting friendships end, memories of fleeting moments begin. Songs that invite you for the ride down the highways of the prairies. Songs that paint a picture in your mind that go well with a full glass and your mates by your side. Canadiana folk rock, your son is calling.
