Hank Pine & Lily Fawn

Hank Pine and Lily Fawn are a vaudeville-inspired duo from Victoria, British Columbia, whose act is based upon the tragic and hilarious adventures of their comic book series. Like the great acts of old, the music covers many genres, yet all stems from a punk rock ethic, and an appreciation for the delicate art of entertaining.

Hank is a tall, dark, and mysterious figure in goggles and a mask that carries his dead girlfriend around in a garbage bag, plays the cello, keyboards, guitars, ukulele, accordion, drums and whatever else he can get his hands on.

Lily, a half-deer, half-human forest creature, that tap-dances and plays the musical saw, the trumpet, the theremin, the flute, and hits the drums like a six-foot sledgehammer.

This debut double album, "The Road to New Orleans..." serves as a soundtrack to the first two issues of their comic book, and showcases both their adoration of all music forms and manic sense of humour.

David Chenery & The Lonesome Valley Singers

David Chenery grew up with cop stories and small town rumours of murder. In his late teens, he began to adapt sixties pop songs by groups like the Box tops, The Zombies and Lulu into screeching, obnoxious punk-rock, causing bar regulars to throw beer bottles and bar managers to cry. By the age of twenty-three, he felt it was time to leave the boredom of rural B.C., and headed to the concrete pastures of ‘the garden city’, Victoria B.C, where he planted some tenuous roots.
While attending film school, David discovered the sounds of artists like The Carter Family and Hank Williams. Hearing this music transformed him from a punker-than-thou Misfits aficionado to a writer of traditional country arrangements, and he began to focus his creative energy into the composure of sweeping death-ballads.

In late 2003, David released his debut album, entitled "Tonight I’ll Be Singing In The Devils Choir" with his merry band of degenerates The Lonesome Valley Singers. In the brief window of time since, David has completed a modest tour of Western Canada and opened for a plethora of well-known artists, including Smog, Elevator to Hell, and underground Canadian icon Dale Morningstar and has recently revived his music with a new line-up of Lonesome Valley Singers notably including Singer/songwriter Chelsea Wakelyn, Former Sensitone & Mondegreen Martin Courchane.

Recently David & The Lonesome Valley Singers have released the highly acclaimed follow-up to The Devil’s Choir album, entitled Memorial.
