Fox Glove:

Fox Glove hails from Victoria BC, and exists in the realm of harmony and alt folk pop. This band is known for their diverse voices and range in sound, offering everything from reflective melancholy ballads to strident and mysterious anthems. Fox Glove has become a staple in the BC music scene, performing as a three-piece at more intimate shows, and revealing another four musicians for larger events. In February 2017, they headlined famed Alix Goolden Hall in Victoria, selling out the 800 seat theatre with support from Sam Weber and Luca Fogale. They have performed at Canadian Music Week, Tall Tree, and Rifflandia music festivals as well as the Canada Day Mainstage in Victoria, BC. They have recorded and collaborated with acts such as Astrocolor, Carmanah, and Jesse Roper, and have supported national acts including Coeur de Pirate. Often compared to bands such as the Staves and Jospeh, a Fox Glove show is a passionate experience not to be missed.

Nick Mintenko Music:

Nick Mintenko is celebrating 2017 with the release of his debut album “What I Thought I Knew”!

As a multi-instrumentalist and supporting artist (Bass, Vocals, Guitar) Nick has an impressive resume that begins with a diploma in Jazz Studies on the Upright Bass (2013), includes recording sessions with Juno winning producers Joby Baker (2015) and David Travers-Smith (2016), and is highlighted by touring western North America and western Europe with Western Canadian Award winning artists and Juno nominated artists expensively over the last four years with The Bills (2014, 2017), The Marc Atkinson Trio (2013-17), and West My Friend (2014-17) among many others.

“What I Thought I Knew” is a coming of age statement. The album has a full band with many voices and rich textures. Broken down though, each song could stand on lyrics alone as they each represent a lesson learned in Love, Doubt, Extroversion, Death, Value, Introversion, Politics, with the last being a final transitional reckoning. The album is said to resemble the sounds of Jeff Buckley, Ron Sexsmith, Radiohead, Deathcab for Cutie, and Patrick Watson among others. “What I Thought I Knew” received positive reviews from Grayowl Point and Ride The Tempo. The title track garnered the honors of being the #5 song of the week for the second week of January 2017 on Ride The Tempo's charts.

With plans already to record in early 2018 with Vancouver Island Music Award's “Producer of the Year” in 2015, Marc Atkinson, Nick is always writing and reinventing his sound.

Nick's influences are married in his compositions. A love of lyricism for songs that can bring people together by speaking to the heart is met by a love of Jazz for expressive exploration and blistering improvisations and fused together by an imaginative composition style that, at times, abandons traditional song form and focuses instead on a stream of consciousness style of bridging ideas and themes.

«What I Thought I Knew by Nick Mintenko, [...] is run through by themes of self realization and maturity, and sounds like it comes from another time.» — Eric Sedore, Grayowl Point

«Nick Mintenko engages and invites us in with an earnest and clean-sounding vocal delivery.» -Mark Anthony Brennan, Ride The Tempo

Nick is ever grateful to his family, friends, mentors, teachers, collaborators, musical community, students, and most of all to those who support live music.
