Combining timeless melodies with a contemporary folk-rock twist, singer-songwriter Ben Caplan is both the roar of the hurricane and the eye of the storm. He has an uncanny ability to channel both wild abandon and quiet introspection. Ben released his first studio album in 2011 and has spent the last ten years recording music and performing to ever growing audiences in music clubs and theatres around the world. For the ten-year anniversary of his first release, Caplan has recorded a retrospective collection of stripped back re-interpretations of songs from across his catalogue. The album, entitled Recollection, will be released in October of 2021 followed by an extensive European and Canadian tour.
Ben will be supported by Nova Scotian singer-songwriter Gabrielle Papillon. Her 2019 album, Shout, was released to universal acclaim. It is propelled by equal parts synth, big pianos, and anger, exploding in thoughtful, danceable art-pop anthems of uprising, hope, and a delirious celebration of self. It is for the ones who are itching to bust out of their shells, of the boxes other people have built for them. For the awkward dancers, and the crowd-averse. For everyone who ever does anything brave even when it is hard.
