are an indie-rock group from the Lethbridge and Calgary area. They are returning to the always fantastic The Owl Acoustic Lounge along with Max Hopkins to provide an immersive listening experience they are known for.

The Silkstones are an indie-rock group from the Lethbridge and Calgary area. Consisting of core members Ryan Phillips and Dylan Jerome Wagner, the two developed an honest and focused song writing relationship by becoming great friends not only in the band, but being supportive in their personal lives as well. Together, they push each other's in their song writing limits farther and farther which matures the band’s sound. Their outlook on music has always been to take the art seriously and to have depth and thoughtfulness while songwriting.

With the addition of new members this summer, The Silkstones are able to create lush and full sounds that are heard on the album and translate it into a sophisticated and exciting live show. Their violinist Megan Brown gives a lavish string dynamic while their guitarist Joel Gray provides energy and melodic solos that complements Wagner’s guitar. Their drummer Skyler Bjorn Benoit-Jones provides a solid percussive blanket for everyone else to build upon and create the lush ambient art-rock sound The Silkstones are known for.

Max hopkins is a singer-songwriter from Lethbridge, Alberta. His blend of age-old song-writing and constant drive toward adventure in his music materializes in warm, expansive soundscapes with subtle intricacy and a wandering spirit.

The past half year following his latest release 'Susurrant' has given him ample time to recollect his thoughts and refine his craft. Joined by a fresh set of collaborators, Max and the Minimums will bring you the sounds of an upcoming EP alongside several new triumphs and other classics.

As always, shows at The Owl are by donation.
