Video Overview of January Performances

by Michael Donley
It's a new month, a new year and a new line-up of Canadian indie music at Streaming Cafe. We are entering into our third year of bringing live streamed concerts to music lovers and we are really excited about the artists that are on the horizon! You can get to know this months performers by reading up and watching.
As always if you can't make down to our cafe in Kelowna, all these shows will be broadcast FREE live online at 7pm (PST) @ http://streamingcafe.net/, where via our live chat window you can send in your questions live to the artists.

January 7th - Reuben Bullock
Reuben Bullock is a singer-songwriter from Calgary, Alberta.
Here's a quote that sums up Reuben “Bullock's voice is intimate and immediate; note-perfect to deliver his testaments and make them resonate. He somehow manages to evoke some of the greatest folk singers without even once sounding imitative.” –FFWD Weekly

January 14th - Ma Petite and Portage & Main
Ma Petite is Melbourne born musician, Indiana Avent's solo project. After spending almost a decade in the music industry playing violin for artists such as Bon Iver, Soko, Dan Mangan, Gotye, Jordan Klassen, Lamplight, Zachary Lucky, and Treelines among others, Avent decided to put her own originals out into the world.

Portage & Main performed at the cafe during POP Okanagan Festival back in October and we are happy to have them back for a double bill with Ma Petite.
Portage & Main strikes a chord in the same Canadian vein as Neil Young and The Band, with its southern guitar and haunting vocals. While the boys didn’t physically ride the timeless rails like tramps, the songs are as honest and genuine as if they had, displaying the insight of old souls whose hearts are fixed and bound to a boxcar travelling across the country.

January 21st - Craig Cardiff
One of Canada's most impressive workhorses, Craig Cardiff joins us for what is sure to be an amazing night of music. Craig has released over 14 albums in as many years and continues to tour non stop.
This show will have two seatings, 7pm & 9:30pm (only the 7pm show will be streamed ) and tickets are now available at the Streaming Cafe.

January 28th - Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk
Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk bring their captivating indie folk-pop melodies to cafe to end the month of January.
“Lauren Mann along with her Fairly Odd Folk are lovely. Lovely to hear and lovely to work with. We enjoyed having them at the 2011 Calgary Folk Music Festival. From what I’ve seen, it looks like she’s at the beginning of a promising career.” -Kenna Burima, Calgary Folk Music Festival
