This evening I was able to sit in on the ‘win your way in’ CFOX Uninvited Guest performance with Thornley at the Roxy due to my involvement with tomorrow’s Winterfest in Surrey. Thornley (Ian Thornley, previously of Big Wreck, and his band) will be headlining the concert stage at Winterfest which is entirely free for all.
I’m really liking what I’ve heard so far from the new album, Tiny Pictures. It’s a mix of Ian’s strong vocals and guitar skills along with some pop tracks such as Make Believe, which was co-written by Dave Genn (54-40, Matthew Good Band) and was produced by Chad Kroeger of Nickelback (but I won’t hold that against them). The entire album was recorded at Alex Lifeson’s (Rush) studio in Toronto. You can listen to the entire performance from today on 99.3 the Fox at 8:00pm tonight.
I’m very pleased to partner again with Winterfest in Surrey this year (and it looks like they’re excited to have me there as well). Come on out to Surrey tomorrow (take the SkyTrain right to Central City) from 12:00pm until 10:00pm for a full day of entertainment and activities for the entire family.
I will be posting photos and blogging throughout the day so you can check out all the action right here starting if you’re unable to make it down (although you should really try because it’ll be a blast).
