The Songwriter Series welcomes James Hill, ukulele player, and cellist Anne Janelle to The Mack on March 18.
Together the duo craft an award-winning sound that is intricate, enchanting, and engaging.
In concert, Hill is a dazzling performer with a warm sense of humour and Janelle brings her syrupy voice to songs that are inventive and entertaining.
Recently hitting number 1 nationwide on CBC Radio 2’s Top-20 for “Back to the Bottom,” Halifax’s Port Cities will launch their first album on March 24 at The Mack.
With layered pop production and catchy guitar, synth, and beats, the buzz-worthy trio hits home with all the spirit you would expect from its members, Dylan Guthro, Breagh MacKinnon, and Carleton Stone – each already a singer-songwriter with an established solo career.
The results of this partnership and combined experience is nothing less than magical: songs with guts, songs with hooks, and songs that surprise and inspire even the band themselves.
The Songwriter Series concludes April 1 with a performance from emerging East Coast icon, Mo Kenney.
The baby-faced singer-songwriter proved her writing chops with the 2016 album “In My Dreams,” picking up ECMA and Music Nova Scotia awards plus a Juno nomination.
Her voice and edgy songwriting caught the ear of now producer Joel Plaskett, who fused a classic rock touch to Kenney's charming folk sound.
She has toured with Plaskett, Ron Sexsmith, and more.
