Event Description

Album Bio:
Helium, Wes Carroll Confabulation's third studio album, is an expressive pop and jazz record defined by clever songwriting, deep grooves, thoughtful arranging, and Wes's distinct hip-hop inspired vocals which combine flowing rhymes with potent melodies. Its nine tracks span a wide range of topics – the rising cost of living, sexual humor, re-imagining masculinity, distraction, hopelessness, and quirky love. This record is a departure from the Confab's previous two outings, introducing ambient slide guitar and vibraphones that dance around dynamic horn-lines. "Helium" is a deeply personal record that offers a space to grieve, laugh, and slow down.

The Wes Carroll Confabulation walks the tight-rope, balancing detailed arrangements with the power of spontaneity. Since 2015, they have honed their unique blend: stretching out into a world of hip-hop grooves, soul and electricity while not losing their jazz footing. Their set blends singer-songwriter and instrumental with themes that include social justice, surveillance, mental health, climate change and of course, love songs too. Wes has traveled the world, playing concerts in the EU, the UK, across Canada, and the US. In 2021, he finished a Masters in Jazz Performance at the University of Toronto and has since become faculty at the VCM. While focusing on his own sound he also learns from the greats with side-projects that include “Wes plays Wes” (a tribute to Wes Montgomery), and PIGS: Canada's Most Authentic Pink Floyd Tribute where he performs as Roger Waters. The Confab are currently promoting their third studio album which will be released through Flatcar Records on May 25, 2024.
