Solid songwriters! Solid folk!
8:00pm - 10:00pm Doors at: 7:30pm
Jacob Weil (pronounced Wheel) is a road-worn singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based out of Vancouver, BC. After years spent crisscrossing the continent as a gun-for-hire touring musician, playing with Sam Weber and Luca Fogale, Jacob has at long last found a home in his own music. As a solo artist and songwriter, Jacob began as a teenager, but quickly switched gears to a life on the road bringing to life the music of his friends. It wasn’t until after several years on the road that Jacob would rediscover his love of creating music for himself in the back of the van after shows and during the few weeks at home between tours.
Guided by this passion, Jacob released his debut EP ‘Feeling My Youth’ in January 2021, recorded live off the floor In Los Angeles, CA. Songs from this record were quickly picked up by Spotify’s biggest Canadian folk playlists creating the foundation for what would become a fast-growing audience and fanbase. Fresh off of back-to-back US tours, Jacob has no intention of slowing down, having recently returned from recording his debut LP – due out in 2023 – at the legendary Sonic Ranch Studios alongside Grammy-nominated musicians and friends. Until its release, Jacob is continuing to tour relentlessly across North America, bringing his music to small towns and big cities across the continent. Floating purposefully between the genres of Folk, Americana and Alternative music, Jacob’s songs leave the listener reminiscing of a not so distant past, like a blurred memory obscured by the trials of the present moment.
John Muirhead is a Canadian troubadour, a campfire storyteller, and a big-hearted folk-rocker based in Toronto, Ontario.
