Itâ€™s easy to forget that This Way North is a two-piece band. Drummer/vocalist Cat Leahy and guitarist/vocalist Leisha Jungalwalla create a uniquely full, expansive sound that translates effortlessly from the studio to the stage. Currently, of no fixed address, the Australian girls are enjoying life on the road, but one thing is evident their sound: their home is on the stage. After ripping up stages all over Canada from Iqaluit to Haida Gwaii in 2018, This Way North return to do it all again. Whether in a local dive bar or at an international festival, This Way North plays with more passion and energy than a 10-piece band, drumming up a contagious euphoria. Big, rhythmic, spacious and saturated with summer, they invite you to turn up the volume and let loose.
“The Day Will Come
Sssnap: Granville Johnson (vocals, lead djembe) with special guest artist Kenan Bear (rhythm djembe), presents an uplifting musical experience in rhythm, song, and spoken word dedicated to living with… while dying of… Dementia. Granville lives with Alzheimers: early stage, diagnosis 2016. Granville is the 2019 Alzheimers Society Regional Honouree in Prince George, BC. Granville â€œlives toward acceptanceâ€ of the unique opportunity that the disease has placed in his life. His mission is to speak-up for those who can not. Through his art he shares this experience; in order to shed some light on Dementia and the self-isolating stigma that it generates and propagates throughout our society.
I would like to start my theatre program with a music video projection: “”The Day Will Come”” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBOkr0Wkb9w”
I’m a northern artist with inspiration of love in each of my songs. I range from folk- jazz- soul where catchy melodies meet rhythmic chords and plucking. I’m accompanied by my love Oscar Carlick of the Coastal Drifters.
