    Pay-What-You-Can

    Through groove, improv and raw, unadulterated emotion, the Bradley/McGillivray Blues Band (BMcG) takes listeners on a journey rarely heard in today’s image-driven music. They play with authenticity, whether an uptown jazz shuffle, gritty Mississippi blues, or New Orleans funk. Influenced by artists like Warren Haynes, Robben Ford, Susan Tedeschi, Janis Joplin and Etta James, they've built an impressive repertoire of original music and signature covers.
    The band's been playing since 1999, blending blues, jazz, Motown and gospel into their own hip brand of soul. Ruth’s knock-you-flat vocals are nicely balanced by Sheldon’s tasteful, understated guitar, and the whole sound is rounded out by an inventive rhythm section featuring bassist Paul Freeman, and drummer Hoto. There's no gimic or hype in a BMcG show--just smokin' music, passionate delivery, and cool tunes. Ruth's voice sends shivers up your spine and leave those little hairs tingling on the back of your neck. And Sheldon's grin when he drops a country twaaaang into a ballad, or a holy-smokes-where-did-he-just-go jazz thing into an old rock cover will make you realize there's not much the guy can't play. They're a band of music lovers for an audience of music lovers.
    BMcG released their second CD, Livin' This Way in 2008. This CD, produced in Vancouver, B.C. by award-winning, veteran producer Bill Buckingham, features nine original songs, their own unique, blues version of Tennessee Waltz, and a bonus track included by special request, Piece of My Heart. Both Canadian Musician and Real Blues Magazine cited Livin' This Way as "one of the best Canadian blues albums of 2008."
    Their debut CD, River of Soul, featured their first collection of original material and was released in September 2003. It received critical acclaim, 4-star reviews, and a nomination in the Jazz/Blues category of the Shai Awards.

    Pay-What-You-Can

    Pianist/singer/songwriter Colleen O’Connor makes her home in Vancouver, BC. Born and raised in Grande Prairie, Alberta, she took up the cello at age 5, and at age 9 the piano followed suit. Colleen started composing instrumental music as a youngster, and during her studies at Grant MacEwan College she developed her creative talents in the Music Writing program. Her piano studies would undergo a setback, as she developed a severe case of tendonitis and was unable to play piano without pain for 3 years. “Playing the piano was always my voice,” says Colleen. “When that voice was stifled, I had to find a different way to express myself creatively, and emotionally.” At this point she began to focus more seriously on developing her voice. During her recovery from tendonitis, aided by her studies in the Coordinate Movement Program at Portland State University, she studied with jazz vocalist Mary Kadderly. Colleen has been deeply influenced by her formal studies in classical music and jazz and was initially inspired to start songwriting by such talented artists as Fiona Apple and Sheryl Crow. Colleen says her lyrics are inspired by themes or experiences that she contemplates for a long period of time. “Often I come to a sudden realization, and a song will be written very quickly – as if I can’t write the words down fast enough,” she says. “Even years later, I find the last pieces of a puzzle in the most unexpected places.” Colleen continues to explore unusual and interesting harmonies, complex rhythmic ideas, and soulful expressions of emotion, as she makes her way in the West Coast music scene. She recently recorded with producer Winston Hauschild and plans to release her debut EP 17 Hoops in summer 2017.
