Why hello there! Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Bent River Records: Canada’s newest university record label. And what does that mean, you ask? It means we are a dedicated artist incubator and student learning lab, bringing you the best in Canadian music. Even though we are new on the scene, we are proud to announce our two upcoming releases happening next month here in YEG.
On November 1 at the ever-classy Bellamy’s Lounge in the Chateau Lacombe, Kent Sangster’s Obsessions Octet will be celebrating their third album release with a listening party and performance by the Obsessions Quartet. This album, Steppin’ Up, marks the first album in the Bent River Records catalogue. We are so excited to connect with our community at this FREE event. Just a tip – arrive early! This venue fills up quickly, and with a band as hot as the Obsessions Octet, we are sure it will sell out.
On November 20 at Canada’s longest running jazz club, the Yardbird Suite, Bent River Records is proud to support Mallory Chipman with the release of her debut album and the second album in our catalogue, Nocturnalize. Come on out to enjoy Mallory’s contemporary jazz sounds while sipping on a glass of wine and enjoying the Yardbird Suite’s signature popcorn. Yum! Tickets are $24 or $20 for Edmonton Jazz Society members and can be purchased in advance on tixonthesquare.ca.
That’s all for now! Stay tuned for more posts coming your way!
