Calla and Groan Boy will be preforming at the Social House on Friday, the tenth of August, the year two thousand and eighteen. Please come on down to this establishment to witness completely original music from two Yukon artists that exist in this century. We hope to see you at this particular location at this particular time. This is Groanboy’s last show in the Yukon for quite some time.
Call Kinglit is a musician, songwriter and poet who draws inspiration from the awe of wilderness and exploring the human experience. In 2018, she released her debut album comprised of songs written while living as a researcher in the Congo Basin in the Central African country of Cameroon, exploring the vast and redemptive beauty of her home base in Canada’s Yukon wilderness, manoeuvring through landslides in the Himalayas, and contemplating the spiritual journey of one small being.
Calla’s music is characterized by haunting melodies combined with deep wilderness based lyrics. She is a multi instrumentalist, primarily writing on a warm hollow body electric guitar. “God River Waltz” and “Dreamer’s Sea”, Calla’s first singles, were released in 2016 and have since been played on CBC Radio 2 and are on rotation on CBC North. In 2017, Calla received standing ovations for performances at Atlin Arts and Music Festival and Dawson City Music Festival, and placed in the top 25 in CBC Radio’s Searchlight Radio competition.
In a way, Dawson Beaulieu has always been Groanboy. If you look at his timeline as a musician, you can see his de-tuned pedal heavy guitar playing has fully realized into what his sound’s always demanded. Backed by Akilena Jonasson on the vox continental organ, Patrick Docherty on the kit and Erik Vasseur on bass, Groanboy is sure to provide some groans and maybe even harmonious ones. Come by & see what Groanboy & Calla are all about!
