Maddie Storvold prairie troubadour; the black sheep love child of protest singer Joan Baez & comedian Steven Wright

 Maddie Storvold is the proverbial black sheep love child of comedian Steven Wright and protest singer Joan Baez. Born on an air force base in Northern Alberta, but raised a nomad, based in the Middle East, she had traveled to over 30 countries by the time she turned 18 and moved back to Canada to complete a degree in English & Philosophy at Western University. This wealth of diverse cultural experiences and the intimate study of the craft of words can certainly be heard in the singer’s music. Often compared to Joni Mitchell, Storvold possesses compassion and storytelling abilities far beyond her years, and delivers these qualities to audiences with a honeyed, impassioned voice and emotive fingerpicking.

Enchanting audiences in British Columbia for many years as a musician and theater artist, Jack Garton’s show is a rocking, sultry and fresh blend of roots, blues and doo-wop. Featured recently in Western Canada Theatre’s production of Chelsea Hotel: The Songs Of Leonard Cohen, and fresh from recording a new full-length album with Vancouver surf legends Kitty and the Rooster, Jack is thrilled and honoured to be presenting his songs to live audiences again in summer 2022.

A frequent collaborator over 16 years, Jack has toured and recorded with many Western Canadian roots bands, including Petunia and the Vipers, Blue Moon Marquee, Maria In The Shower, and The Burying Ground, playing his unique combination of trumpet and accordion. Since 2013, he has also been busy as a solo artist, releasing two critically-acclaimed albums (Move The Mess Around, 2016 and Love You Over Time, 2018) and playing up to 90 shows a year with his own backing band.Having learned the craft of songwriting in long-term mentorships with folk legends Dan Bern and Geoff Berner, Garton is forging his own songwriting style that has delighted fans and critics alike.

Described as “infectious songs that each stand alone as riveting short stories set to music” (BC Musician) and “the perfect soundtrack for a generation just trying to walk in a straight line” (Maddy Cristall, Citrus Magazine), his third commercial release in spring 2023 is sure to bring even more listeners to Jack’s world of catchy, funny and poetic roots songs.“The sound is punchy and bright, with the instruments perfectlycoordinated.” -Tony Montague, Georgia Straight“Jack Garton will save the accordion” – Trevor Nichols, Jasper Fitzhugh“This is a really catchy, well-written singer/songwriter/accordion record. The musicianship is solid, it’s well recorded. Clever rhymes, an overall point of view about just the absurd difficulty of being alive. I like it a lot.” –Geoff Berner
