Vinyl Envy Presents : Ryan McMahon | Pony Gold
Whether it has been as a solo act, or with the harmony...
8:00pm - 10:00pm Doors at: 7:30pm
Whether it has been as a solo act, or with the harmony-driven trio Lion Bear Fox, Ryan McMahon has toured several countries on the map, giving memorable performances everywhere he's been for over 20 years now. Having shared the stage with everyone from Burton Cummings & Buffy St. Marie to Mother Mother & Aaron Pritchett, Ryan has proven himself to be as adaptable as anyone in Canadian music.
His new single, "One More Fire" came out April ‘22, and was produced alongside a fleet of top-shelf talent inside the walls of Vancouver's venerable Bryan Adams-owned Warehouse Studio. After nearly two years of forced reflection and re-calibrating, Ryan is ready to get back on the road to make those connections to friends & fans that he holds so dear once again, through the power of music.
Good vibes and sad songs. An intimate experience into the dusty basement of singer songwriter Theresa Pasaluko's soul. Pony Gold takes you on a ride through hard times, trials and tribulations, and the vices we use to help us navigate life. Lead by Pasaluko’s raw and seamlessly dynamic voice, and guitarist Matt Bromley’s awe inspiring slide guitar, the duo will give you that pony you wanted as a child, and turn your black heart to gold.
BC born and bred and based out of Victoria BC, Pony Gold is a project created to let the duo follow their undeniable love of being music creators and performers. Along the likes of Lucinda Williams, Kathleen Edwards, Bonnie Rait and Tedeschi Trucks Band, while drawing influences from the endless pool of classic country, soul, and undeniable blues impressions.
Pasaluko and Bromley are both multi instrumentalists and have been performing for years in bands of various genres from hip hop, to funk, to pop and country. Pasaluko was raised running wild in the hayfields of a small town in Northern BC with Loretta and Hank playing on the radio. She is trained in Jazz and arranging and has been songwriting and performing since her early teens. Bromley grew up in the lower mainland immersed in the sounds of BB King, Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf. His imprisoned voice can only be released by a guitar slide and some steel strings, and he has spent most of his life perfecting his skill. Matt was born to play and Theresa was born to sing, the two are pursuing their calling which is apparent in this extraordinary music. You can get lost in the depths of this music and find yourself somewhere in there.
