Show Review – Drake Jensen, Patrick Masse & Paisley Fields in Ottawa, ON

Deep in downtown Ottawa’s Rideau arts’ district, Drake Jensen welcomed Vancouver’s Patrick Masse and visiting New York-based Paisley Fields to the quirky Soviet-themed Avant Garde bar for a night celebrating their passion for everything country.

When asked about touring Canada for the first time, James Wilson of Paisley Fields said, “I love it!”

“Everyone’s super cool, the venues are great and really cool spots.  If these places were in New York, these are places I would play.” 

Wilson said the opportunity to play in Toronto, Ottawa and Kingston was the perfect opportunity to play their latest release, Glitter and Sawdust, to new audiences.

“We ended up premiering the album in Vice Magazine early,’ says Wilson of the expedited release of Glitter and Sawdust“I thought this would be a good preview to jump on up here and see what it’s like with audiences here.”

Following his band’s tour through southern and eastern Ontario, Wilson says he is in talks with Patrick Masse about bringing Paisley Fields to Vancouver for shows.

“I’ve been wanting to play in Canada for a long time,” said Wilson.
