Vancouver’s Terence Jack headlines a bill including New Brunswick’s FM Berlin and local songwriter, Ben Edwards and his band at The Carleton on Wednesday, April 27th. Live music will start after 9:30 PM and it’s $10 at the door to get in on the action.
Terence is a Vancouver-based folk/alt. country musician who plays Weissenborn lap steel guitar, harmonica, as well as electric and acoustic guitars. He’s a world traveler by trade (he ran his own travel company), spending many of his years abroad. This is where his inspiration comes to life – overseas – providing the perfect atmosphere to create.
“I play music for the journey of it all. I grow, live and will die with music and everything along the way is life.”
FM Berlin got the inspiration for their name from (Bassist) Glen Farquhar’s father who, in June of 1960, carried a concealed camera into Soviet occupied East Berlin and was able to smuggle pictures of the bombed-out city back to Canada. FM Berlin leave nothing in the tank when it comes to their live performances, which are reminiscent of bands like The Hives, The Police and The Walkmen.
In 2014 FM Berlin took home Music New Brunswick’s Emerging Artist of the Year award for their debut EP In The Interest of National Security (released under their previous band name 60 LPs).
Growing up in Truro, Ben Edwards began his career as a solo acoustic performer playing numerous venues across the province. In 2011, he joined forces with local blues rock band Black Rock Road, releasing their self-titled EP in 2012. The single, Breaking Out, got some attention at radio. Determined to make a name for himself, Ben set out on a solo path, recording Bright Light Catastrophe at CodaPop Studios and is working – solo and with a band – to bring that music to the world.
