C.R. Avery Live at The Jazz Room – Tues Oct 4 $10 Advance Encore Records, Words Worth Books $14 at the Door

Tom Waits is a fan and brought C.R. up to perform on stage with him in Germany. If Lawrence Ferlinghetti could play harmonica like Little Walter, you’d have an idea of what a groundbreaking piece of work this is and the genre busting audio statement that defines Magic Hour Sailor Songs.

C.R. Avery is a musicians’ musician. He is admired by and has performed with Tom Waits, Ani DiFranco, Utah Phillips, Sage Francis and others.

This is his new solo album and we’re proud to bring him to a wider audience. Whether playing in front of thousands on the folk festival circuit or in a small cafe in Berlin or Edinburgh, C.R. Avery is a unique and electrifying performer. He simultaneously beatboxes, sings, plays harmonica and a Herbie Hancock 80s style red rocket guitar. Having drawn from a well of influences, C.R. is to hip-hop what Jimmy Reed was to Chicago blues; a one man traveling troubadour – but he is one for these modern times.

C.R.’s lyrical skills and vocal delivery have brought him to the forefront of the international spoken word scene. He is a past winner of the CBC national Poetry Face-Off. Scratchy, smoky, beaten by years of cigarettes and off-mike shouting in cabarets all over the world, C.R. Avery’s voice is instantly identifiable.

C.R’s lyrics come from his slam poetry pieces, honed by the merciless, sudden death, one-victor-and-all- others-cast-aside competitive nature of the slam world. As such, having been performed in front of an audience that demands both intellectual clarity and visceral honesty, competing against the very best work of the very best poets, his pieces are crafted to a necessary perfection.

Magic Hour Sailor Songs is an elegiac poetic tour de force, bending and criss-crossing genres; there’s a string quartet, an all female jazz choir and the best out there jazz & classical musicians – creating something rarely seen these days; a genuinely powerful artistic work.

CR Avery Live at The Jazz Room – is brought to you by Hidden City Productions, Words Worth Books, and Onyx.

PRESSURE DROP : 12 YEARS FORWARD

On Friday September 30, come celebrate 12 years of Pressure Drop Radio on 100.3 SoundFM with special guest: groundbreaking producer DBRIDGE from London UK!

In 1999, two first-year students at the University of Waterloo decided to take their love for music and DJing to the next level. Pressure Drop was born, playing

an eclectic mix of Jungle, Reggae, House and Punk Rock to early morning listeners. The show progressed into a period of strictly Drum and Bass with intros of Reggae and Hip Hop and moved to Sunday evenings, bringing the weekends to fruition. Pressure Drop saw Ragga Jungle reborn around 2002 and started exposing KW to dubstep in 2006. Around the same time, the show joined other longstanding Hip Hop programs on Thursday nights, solidifying connections. When SoundFM was defunded, Pressure Drop stayed strong and dependable, moving with the station, and now is on the edge of its most prolific period.

This event is about all the people who have supported us over the years and who have helped make it happen!

Forging a strong bond with Instra:mental, they showcased their Autonomic sound with an award-winning Fabriclive mix CD, worldwide tour and residencies for Fabric and Rinse FM. In 2011, dBridge returns the focus to his label Exit Records with the Mosaic Vol. 1 compilation and more artist LPs as he continues to be a mentor to the new breed of producers inspired by his career. As a solo artist, dBridge remains versatile with his own productions for Exit, Reinforced, Hotflush, and more.
