Infusion of roots, soul and reggae at the Waverley with Buckman Coe

With special guests Brodie Dawson and Christy Vanden

Buckman Coe

Bridging the worlds of roots, soul, and reggae, Buckman Coe is a passionate believer in the power of music to shape the future. His sun-kissed folk; gospel-tinged soul; intoxicating world-beat melodies, and psychedelic rock sensibility all play a part in providing the sonic platform for Coe’s soulful and conscious lyrics.

He brings his show to the Waverley Hotel Friday, Jan. 30.

Recent highlights include BIGSOUND in Australia, Edmonton Jazz Society Blues Series and Vancouver International Jazz Festival, opening for Ziggy Marley, and several cross-Canada and West Coast tours. Buckman Coe has also been voted best band in Vancouver’s Westender and best independent act in the Georgia Straight.

Currently, Buckman is recording his fourth album with Adham Shaikh and Jason Kechely for release in early 2015. This followup to the Crow’s Nest EP and By the Mountain’s Feet continues Buckman’s innovative explorations of genres, bringing together progressive forms of soul, folk, and reggae.

While his music is compared to folks such as Michael Franti, Ben Harper and Jeff Buckley, and informed by the spirits of Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye and John Lennon; Buckman Coe is a force of positive inspiration in his own right, using his voice and music to bring more beauty into the world.

And guests…

With special guests Brodie Dawson and Christy Vanden. Brodie calls her style a mix of soulful ‘folky’ blues with a gospel funk, a twist of pop and a twang of old-school country. True to all those genres she sings of life, love, searching and finding your way. For those of you who haven’t heard her sing – you’re in for a treat!

Advance tickets ($12) for this sure-to-sell-out twinbill available at Bop City, the Waverley Hotel, or by phone 250-336-8322.
