Scalawag CD release with Wendy Colby
Tue, Jun 6
The Slice - Lethbridge


Time:8 p.m.

Cover: $10 advance, $15 at door

The BC-based multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Scalawag will be playing songs off the album with a full band, and their usual quirky stage banter. With special guest Wendy Erika Colby!

A little about the album:

Sehnsucht is German for Nostalgia, longing, or yearning. More specifically, a deep unsettled longing for something ‘else.’ An unapologetically melancholic indie-folk album born straight from the heartfelt reflections of Singer- Songwriter Teo Saefkow’s experiences with the concept of Sehnsucht, and influenced by the folky- atmospheric confessional style of artists like Lucy Dacus and Gregory Alan Isakov. Scalawag’s sophomore album Sehnsucht deals with the multi- disciplinary artist’s attempt at finding meaning within relation. From the opening track’s examination of a doomed relationship, to obsession with the thought of a loved one deciding never to return home in the album’s fourth track.

A little about Scalawag:

With an eclectic mix of genre, and distinct vocals, Scalawag takes you on a journey of imagination. Teo Saefkow is a multi-instrumentalist, playing Trumpet, Saxophone, Percussion, Bass, Piano, Ukulele and Guitar. His sound is described as a mix between Hozier, Sufjan Stevens, and a young Leonard Cohen, Teo, AKA Scalawag, is sure to both make you nostalgic for things you've never experienced, and keep your head bopping and your torso grooving.

Teo Saefkow grew up in the small town of Smithers, B.C. in a very artistic household: his Mother, a painter, writer, and magazine publisher; his dad, a graphic designer, set designer and guitarist/singer. From an early age, he was exposed to live music, attending concerts and music festivals around northern B.C. He started playing music when he received his first guitar at age 7 and continued throughout elementary and high school where he played tenor saxophone and trumpet in several school bands, and sang in the jazz and choral choirs.

His career in music began the year after he graduated high school when he and long time friend, Zak Windle, started writing music together under the name Ranger Smash. They co-produced and released their first 10-track album together in June, 2016.

During this time, Teo also attended the conservatory acting program at Studio 58 in Vancouver where he honed his crooneresque style, and developed his vocal technique. After graduating, he went on to write, record and self-produce his first solo album under the name Scalawag, released in March, 2019, during his Album release tour.

A little about Wendy:

Wendy Erika Colby is a vocalist within the Southern Alberta music community. This has been her primary passion since the age of 3. In addition to singing and songwriting, Colby enjoys playing the guitar, sitar, and keys and experiments in sound production (when she can find the time). Her muses include Laura Marling, Seven Eyes, Anoushka Shankar, and Bedouine. Colby has traveled the world bringing her guitar along with her to share her heart songs - for now, you can find her playing around the Southern Alberta region.
