Mixing rock and roll with modern electronic sounds and psychedelia is part of what gives Luke his unique sound. Inventive lyrics, funny stories, tripped-out scenes that truly captivate the listener… Check out Luke singing The Wind Cries Mary with his homies:
So … what’s your story, Rebecca Binnendyk?
“I studied voice at Wilfrid Laurier University, recieving my degree in Music Therapy and recording a Contemporary Christian CD in Nashville in 2004.
After university, I taught English in Shandong, China and traveled through Southeast Asia. In 2006, I started to build my practice in Music Therapy, before returning to school to complete my Bachelor of Education. When I graduated, I was able to backpack through Central and South America, gaining a love for the culture and language and have added many songs from this culture to my repertoire.
Since returning from these travels, I have been actively pursuing a singing career in Jazz and Entertainment. In 2011, I was awarded a FACTOR grant and was able to record an eight-song album of Jazz standards, produced by Rick J. Hutt. These are found on my website, www.rebeccabinnendyk.com.
In 2012 I played the lead role in the musical, RENT for Kitchener-Waterloo Musical Productions. My schedule has been busy with performances at corporate functions, weddings, private parties, and community events, including international performances in New Zealand and Australia in the first half of 2014.
Singing is my passion 🙂 “
Neil took his first music lesson (lap-steel) when he was 8 years old but didn’t take up performing until he was 27. He has been with three bands over the years, and we’re lucky to call him one of our own. Pop in and tip your cap to a local music legend.
Taylor and Bryn took its sweet time to form, simmering towards perfection since 2010, when they met while pursuing their BA Music Degrees from York University. In 2014 it occured to them to solidify their musical energies in a tight, powerful duo. It is now clear that these boys are on a musical journey to make tasteful, elaborate and enduring pop music.
Despite their distinctly different songwriting styles, both are passionate about making songs the best they can be, and grew up being fascinated by all forms of music that resonate with pure imagination.
There is an uncanny similarity in the elements that comprise their sound – innovation, musicianship, and unforgettable melodies. Each song swirls with shades of anything from Jazz Standards, to 70’s Pop, to Hip Hop, and beyond – creating a sound that is tremendously refreshing – and yet, still accessible to any set of 21st Century ears.
Taylor & Bryn’s live shows are exciting, accessible, unpredictable, humorous, and uplifting–enough to garner the attention of reputable musical judges and label A&R representatives. Recently picked for 1st place in the Ontario-wide Landmark Events Showcase Competition out of hundreds of entrants, Taylor & Bryn are gearing up to release their first EP in 2015.
With 2 acoustic guitars, 20 harmonicas, beatboxing chops, and two voices of distinct blend at their disposal, Taylor & Bryn are poised for launch.
So, come out for a mid-week dinner that will be accompanied by a night of great music and good friends. You’ll be glad you did . . .
In the corner of the ballroom of 157 Main Street you will be enveloped in the sultry tones bowed by magical violinist Edwin Huizinga as he and virtuoso pianist Ronald Greidanus weave their way through Brahms’ idyllic Sonata No. 1 in G Major and Prokofiev’s wintry Sonata No. 1 in F Minor.
Delicious gourmet stews, cheeses and bread will be served following the concert, before listeners venture back into the frosty depths of February.
