    This sound comes down to the amalgamation of three specific styles. They are ingredients that blend to create what is ultimately Brian's unique recipe for song. The most prominent of these ingredients is his darker take on North American Folk, he works with gritty and abrasive vocal tones that add a timelessness to his voice. Secondly, Brian uses warmer tones in his vocals coupled with ornamentation inherent to that of classic R&B. It is here where he smoothens the edges of his folk sound. His grit immediately becomes more palatable. Finally, Brian draws great inspiration and style from the Irish ballad, Brian shapes his writing tightly around the structure and word play of old Irish lamentations.

Although still a newcomer to Vancouver’s music scene, Antoinette has quickly established herself as an in-demand singer and musician, playing local hot-spots several times a week. In 2017 she self recorded, produced and released her first EP Rush (Oct. 2017) and subsequent single Killing Time (April 2018).

    This past spring Antoinette enlisted some of her talented musician friends to join her onstage as “The Latest” and the rest, as they say, is history. A powerful singer with expressive lyrics, Antoinette’s music is relatable and infectious. Add the musical prowess of her band, “The Latest,” these songs are brought to life with a strong focus on tight harmonies and grooves.
