New Brunswick’s Adyn Townes makes his long-awaited return to The Carleton to celebrate the release of his new LP, In Frames, on Wednesday, October 6th. Show time is 7 PM and advanced tickets are $15 + HST. New-to-The-Carleton singer/songwriter, Elyse Aeryn will handle the opener honours.
Alternative indie artist Adyn Townes is continuing the slow burn lead-up to his full length album with his newest EP In Frames 2B. This 4-song EP explores the unique stories and relationships that exist behind closed doors—or open windows—of each unit in an apartment.
“We often only see glimpses into other people’s lives through the windows we pass on the street and it was these stories that inspired In Frames. I think before the pandemic, no one saw themselves in these moments—but from first loves to forever loves, our stories are more similar than they are different.”
This is the next chapter after his most recent EP In Frames 1A (Oct 2020), all culminating in a full-length album set for release late summer 2021. Think vintage Coldplay meets Alvvays, this new music sees Townes take a deeper dive into his alt sensibilities, most notably on the standout track and first radio single “Cannonball”.
“The track is about someone that you would do literally anything for, without fully knowing why exactly it is that you feel that way. I think we all have someone like that in our lives.”
A five-time International Songwriting Competition finalist, 2020 ECMA nominee for Songwriter of the Year, and winner of the 2020 MNB award for SOCAN Song of the Year, Townes self- deprecating banter disarms any live audience and sets the stage for his beautiful and honest songwriting. Hailing from the east coast of Canada, where storytelling is rich, Townes’ unique voice and heartfelt lyrics help him stand out from the crowd.
Think Death Cab for Cutie meets David Gray. High energy, but intimate. Beautiful, and clever.
Elyse Aeryn is emerging on the Canadian music scene with a fresh yet nostalgic sound, reminiscent of 90s alternative with a rock & roll influence. She has legitimized herself as a CBC Searchlight Top 100 artist, a regional finalist in the Jim Beam Talent Search, and with a #1 song on the 97.5 Community Radio East Coast 30. The live-off-the-floor performance of “East Coast Winter”, now with >200k Facebook views, has reached the hearts of east coasters across the country. Aeryn is working on her second album with the first single, Bittersweet High, now available on all streaming platforms. Influenced by classic rock heroes like Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty, while capturing the essence of 90s female vocalists like Alanis Morissette and Natalie Merchant, Aeryn is blending decades and genres to mix up an alternative-rock-country cocktail that will have you asking for a double.
