This episode brings 3 talented artists from Vancouver, Victoria, and Gabriola together to play under one roof! Beastie (Charlie Materi) - Vancouver Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Beastie’s music and poetry swing wildly between emotional, personal, and tongue-in-cheek impulses. They are deeply nerdy about expression and human connection and have a penchant for playing around with different genres and vocal stylings. They released their last album, Tiny Crimes, in 2019 and have been performing in venues across the land since they were 15. Paul Gelman - Gabriola Paul is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist (piano, guitar, violin), with three albums of original music, the latest being Globalize, released in June 2020. Paul first came to Gabriola in 1973, before joining The Perth County Conspiracy and traveling back to Ontario. He returned to Gabriola and formed the band Island in 1977. Since then, he has been a band leader, side person, coach and musical director. The Paul Gellman Band has been a favourite for Gabriolans for many years! Russel Wellner - Victoria Russell Wellner is a singer-songwriter and guitarist who grew up writing music and busking on the streets of Toronto from a young age. Graduating from theatre school only months before the start of the pandemic. Russell fled quickly to the west coast where tall trees and ocean would be a temporary replacement for live music and performance. On the coast, he found greater inspiration than he ever could have imagined! Russell had the pleasure of living in Tofino for 2 years, spent time volunteering at the Fairy Creek old-growth logging blockades, and has recently moved to Victoria to pursue his music with greater zest! As a songwriter, Russell draws great influence from artists such as Neil Finn from Crowded House, Bruce Springsteen, and Tom Petty. You can find Russell on Spotify and all other streaming platforms. Let's get Unplugged!
