Event Description

Join Vancouver folk-rockers, Echo Nebraska as they celebrate the release of their new album, HOLD UP TO THE FIRE on Saturday, June 16 at The Roxy Cabaret in Vancouver, BC. Supporting the band is Coldwater Road.

Tickets are $10 in advance through Ticketfly. $13 at the door. Doors at 7pm.

Hold up to the Fire, Echo Nebraska’s sophomore effort, sees the Vancouver folk-rock outfit expand on their reputation of combining soul-strung acoustic songs with melodic pop sensibilities. After releasing Send the Ships in 2015, the band spent the next couple of years touring Canada, showcasing at BreakOut West 2016 in Regina, SK and CMW 2017 in Toronto, ON, before returning to the studio.

They were determined to write music that was universally accessible and affirming, focusing on introspective themes of love, loss and perseverance.

The mission to spread positivity to a wider audience stems from heartbreak within the band. In September 2016, bassist Gunn Park passed away after a battle with cancer. Even though this was a difficult time for the band, they focused on channeling this loss in a positive direction. This is apparent on the album's first single ‘Follow Me’. As songwriter Devan Christodoulou puts it, “The song is about life. It’s okay to rely on each other to get us through tough times.”

Ultimately, despite the loss of their friend and bandmate, Echo Nebraska pushed their musical direction forward on Hold up to the Fire, resonant with messages of hope, love, and the power of human relationships.

Lyrically rich with hard hitting instrumentation, Coldwater Road gives folk music a reason to dance. Waltzing between love songs and foot-stomping murder ballads, CwRoad covers a lot of ground, their songs born around the campfire of BC’s Nicola Valley and seasoned on the seawalls of Vancouver. Their style reaches across Folk, Americana, Rock, and Country, and live performances are like James Taylor with the Lumineers. Performing as a duo to a five-piece, complete with rich harmonies and a wealth of musical textures. Gritty and acoustic, to layered and full of melody, Coldwater Road features Patrick Spencer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, harmonica), Charles Wesley (electric guitar, vocals), Max Kashetsky (vocals, keys) and a fluid rhythm section including Stephanie Hodgins, Connor Brooks, Stuart Alves, and Sam MacKinnon.
