Double Bill: John Hewitt & Amy Bishop
@ St. Basil's Cultural Centre // 7:30 pm
With a voice and pen that echoes the phrases of Dylan, the delivery of Van Morrison and the coolness of Tom Petty, John Hewitt is a force to be reckoned with. As a songwriter he involves the abstract imagery of the Beat Poets, as a performer he adds the energy of the Beatles and as a producer he creates sound waves inspired by the greats such as Brian Wilson and Phil Spector. With three releases under his belt since March 2020 he’s set to hit the major festival stages in 2022/2023 as well as working on a solo record “Life Blood & tears” and a follow up full band record “Chaos & Conversation”. A hungry force two years in the making you’ll be mesmerized by the quality of the content and its authenticity.
Hailing from Calgary, Amy Bishop began her music career around campfires, at block parties, and in church choir. Knowing a career in music is no guarantee, Amy decided to practice other trades, but her passion for music prevailed, leading her to collaborations with Moby and opening for April Wine, Farmer’s Daughter, and Chris Cummings. Amy has an instinctive ability to craft stories into song and deliver them with sincerity and passion, all qualities that make her an undeniable Canadian talent.
Amy “wowed” Canada with her appearance on CTV “The Launch” in 2018. This opened up industry doors as she was quickly signed by both a booking agency and management company. In March 2019 Amy performed at the prestigious Canadian Screen Awards in Toronto.
