Different Sounds Zone presents: Devarrow & Owen Meany’s Batting Stance

After the summer break, Different Sounds Zone is coming back in full swing to introduce many original performers. For starters, join us for a meeting with two exceptional musicians from Canada.

Devarrow and Owen Meany’s Batting Stance are songwriters from Nova Scotia who represent the best music traditions of the region. Both are guitarists but present completely different styles. They invite us on a journey to a world of moody ballads as well as heavier songs featuring strong vocals.

Devarrow is the moniker of Graham Ereaux, a singer-songwriter who blends simple folk with sophisticated pop to create music which reflects an upbringing in Moncton, New Brunswick and a subsequent half decade of traveling.

In 2015, Devarrow self-released The Great Escape, a collection of eleven songs written in a leaky-roofed apartment while living in Vancouver for a winter. To support the release, Devarrow toured Canada extensively as a one-man-band in 2015 and 2016, focusing on creating an energetic, captivating and intimate live show performed in the raconteur style. Gaining recognition in the maritimes – including an ECMA nomination – Devarrow moved back East to Halifax, Nova Scotia where he now resides. With a refined focus on lyrics and arrangement, Devarrow is currently working on a new album.

mmCharacterized as ‘impassioned literary folk’, Owen Meany’s Batting Stance is the moniker of Halifax via Guelph singer-songwriter Daniel Walker.

Walker’s work embarks on an exploration of how a song can be used to cradle narratives, weaving lyrics and melodies to sew stories and express personal longings, frustrations, and all else that results from his tangles with cultural introspection. If John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats and John K. Sampson of the Weakerthans formed a book club, you can be sure that Walker would be scurrying to the nearest second hand book store in search of the recommended novels he hadn’t read.

Owen Meany’s Batting Stance’s self titled record, released September 17th 2016, has been recently nominated for 3 Music Nova Scotia Awards (Best New Artist, Alternative Recording of the Year, and Individual Recording of the Year). Currently in the midst of a European tour, OMBS will be returning to Canada later in the fall for showcase performances at Halifax Pop Explosion music festival as well as Nova Scotia Music Week.
