Photo Review – Sweet Roger, Bound and Tethered, Devarrow and Greg McEvoy

Who: Sweet Roger, Bound and Tethered, Devarrow and Greg McEvoy
When: February 2, 2016
Venue: Le Divan Orange, concert hall
Where: Montreal, Quebec

Four bands, a great crowd and a classic venue were the main ingredients to turn this “minus way too cold” celsius Wednesday into a warm evening, rocked by the sound of some of the most promising new Canadian talents.

Folk, blues and Americana were just a few of the aromas to emanate from Sweet Roger‘s music as he opened the festivities for the evening. Alone on stage with his two guitars, the Montreal based singer/songwriter managed to monopolize the audience attention as they followed him through a genuine musical performance.

Next to hit the stage was the country-folk duo Bound and Tethered. Stefanie Parnell and Chris See Hoye voices are, obviously, a match made in heaven. (I know, I know… sound’s corny) Tight harmonies, great song writing and a true musical symbiosis between these two talented musicians.

Almost last, but not least, the most interesting Devarrow from Halifax, Nova Scotia. As part of his 2016 East/West/East tour, he shared is talent with Montrealers for the second night in a row. True to his one-man-band set-up, he delivered songs from both albums The Coast, The Cottage and The Great Escape. Intense, honest and captivating, Devarrow marked the spirits with is music and personality. Get ready West coast, he’s coming your way!!




As the closing act, Greg McEvoy and is seven piece band electrified what had been to that point, a mostly acoustic night. With songs from previous EP’s and a selection of songs from is first LP to be release on the 12 of this month: “Selfish Love Songs”, Greg and the band literally owned the stage. Tight rhythm section, great guitar work, awesome vocals and a very down to earth Greg McEvoy that has everything one needs to make a long lasting mark in this industry.
