Peter Boyd & Noah Zacharin

Wednesday Night at 9pm (Wednesday, September 26th, 2018)

PWYC

Peter Boyd (guitar/voice), Noah Zacharin (guitar/voice)


Peter Boyd
Peter Boyd has been a songwriter for over thirty years. Drawing on gospel and blues from Chicago all the way back to the Delta and re-invented upside-down-and-backwards, Peter's songs are a sepia-tinged glimpse into his messy, not-fully-developed soul where faith has as much a chance as folly to send you careening into the abyss.

Peter's new CD 'Beulahland' is garnering great reviews, most recently a rave from Greg Quill in the Toronto Star - "stunning and powerful blues-rooted original songs and astonishing guitar wizardry. Among the best of the year's roots/blues crop."

Noah Zacharin
Noah Zacharin was born in Montreal and resides in Toronto. He was given his first guitar at age 9, wrote his first song at 13, began performing at 14, and is happy to say that he still loves playing music. He has been called "a wonderful songwriter and performer, and stunning guitarist" (Paul Mills, Borealis Records, Producer (Stan Rogers, Oscar Peterson), a "wonderful, adventurous guitarist" (Blues Bytes), "a poet, a songwriter, a singer we have been waiting for" (Penny Lang), "a great guitarist/singer/songwriter...a wonderfully musical player" (Randy Finney, President and Founder Toronto Fingerstyle Guitarist's Association), "in a league of his own" (Brian Gladstone, AD Winterfolk Festival), "one of the best songwriters this country has produced" (the late great Rick Fielding, recording artist, radio host) and "deserving to be mentioned in the same breath with names such as James Taylor and David Wilcox" (Minor 7th).

Zacharin's recordings have garnered praise from fans and critics alike. silence spoken here (1997) was called "an understated classic...musical versatility and lyrical depth" (Xpress-Ottawa); Scene Roots and Blues dubbed aLIVE! (2000) "a real gem"; and a review of crow dark wind (2001) in Minor 7th elicited the following: "like Bruce Cockburn, Ry Cooder, and Bonnie Raitt, Noah Zacharin possesses a virtuoso command of the guitar...world-wise songwriting."

Formed in early 2011, the Cityscape performs the compositions of Chelsea McBride, a Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist and composer whose songs emulate the many moods and sounds experienced by someone living in the big city.

After making their public debut in 2012 and performing at various Toronto venues (including the Sister and the Central), Chelsea and the Cityscape are releasing their self-titled EP in February 2013 as an online-only release through Bandcamp, featuring three songs that showcase the band’s versatility and maturity. After their release show at the Tranzac on Feb 2, along with the launch of their ReverbNation and Facebook pages, the Cityscape intends to take the Toronto scene by storm, with a string of shows lined up between February and the end of April.

The band is planning to use the EP to gain momentum towards a mini-tour of Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal, and is aiming to be on the festival circuit in 2014. Chelsea and the Cityscape is just getting started, so stay tuned for more exciting news, and more sounds of the city.
