In my last post I mentioned this little project I've been working on with Adrian Chalifour of Towers & Trees for Music BC's Songwriter Workshop happening on June 14th, 2014 at St. Ann's Academy during this year's VIC Fest. We are pairing up an established artist with an up and comer in the Victoria music scene to talk songwriting while eating great food at VIC Fest food vendors.
The second session of VIC Fest Profiles happened at Pizza Prima Strada's Bridge St. location with Kathryn Calder and Robbie Aylesworth. Both wonderfully talented musicians. I've followed Kathryn Calder's career since I first saw Immaculate Machine play the their cd release party for Transporter, and Robbie Aylesworth I'm just starting to get to know. The following night after this interview Robbie played a last minute gig with a full band for the first time here in Victoria. Let's just say it kicked some serious ass. This guy is going somewhere, like The Zone's Band of The Month.
Oh, and Robbie played another last minute gig at YYJ Rocktographers. That pretty much makes him the best in my books.
