Artist: Devon Sproule

Recorded at Burdock Music Hall, August 16, 2015.

Devon Sproule - Snap Shudder

Heading out on a joint east-coast tour, it was not surprising to see that Devon Sproule's backing band was essentially a reshuffled version of Bernice. With Phil Melanson on drums, Dan Fortin on bass and Thom Gill on guitar (plus, of course, Robin Dann and Felicity Williams' lushly-sophisticated backing vox) what was more interesting to note how unlike Bernice they sounded, bringing a different sound (more West Coast pop, less ambient textures) to serve Sproule's songs. The same crew also backed Sproule in the studio for her newest batch of songs, so we can expect the collaboration to continue on from here.

* Thanks to Devon for passing along the title to this one!
