Vinyl Envy Presents : Sail Cassady | R.Mason | Aaron Wylder
Ethereal folk, pop and indie from a 3 act banger!
7:45pm - 10:00pm Doors at: 7:30pm
Sail Cassady came alive while reading ‘On The Road’ by Jack Kerouac in 2012. The adventure, art and imagery held within the parameters of a single book birthed the idea that the same concept could be experienced within a song or a band.

R.Mason is singer-instrumentalist Rebecca Mason, guitar player Jonathan Blokmanis, on the bass Aaron Blair and on the drums Miles Fuller. R.Mason filters soulful songwriting through explorative moods to cook up a project textured with paradox: lightness and tension, desperation and transcendence. Rebecca has been writing songs since she learned to carry a note at age 4; ever since, music has been her second language and the only constant in her life. She is driven by a need to understand life’s heartbeat, transforming ineffable experiences and vulnerable emotions into sound. Her songwriting has been shaped by childhood echoes of church music; passion writers like Bob Dylan, Josh Ritter and Kathleen Edwards; singers like Lana Del Ray, Nina Simone and Norah Jones; duos like Angus and Julia Stone; and composers like Eric Satie.
As r.mason, Rebecca, Jonathan, Aaron and Miles weave Rebecca’s textured vocal tones with classically influenced electronic keys and gritty atmospheric guitar, immersing listeners in the heart and depth of their evocative soundscapes.
Born and raised in the Cayman Islands, Aaron Wylder is a 25 year old Canadian singer songwriter. Now based out of Victoria, British Columbia, he can be found most often with a guitar in his hands. He is motivated by the prospect of creating resonating songs.
“I try to write what I hear in my head and what I feel in my chest. It's a damn cool thing to write a song that not only you love, but speaks to others as well. If I’m able to make music that I enjoy and people enjoy it too then I’ll die a happy man.” - Aaron
