The TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival presents:
Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine
with Olivia Lunny
Saturday June 22 @ The Garrick
8 PM | Tickets $30
Platinum-certified breakout Canadian duo Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine will surprise you with their candour and the depth of intention to their art. Comprised of instrumentalist/composer Elijah Woods and lyricist/vocalist Jamie Fine, EWxJF is a delicate marriage of exploratory musical styles and masterful emotional play. The best way to prepare for the new EWxJF is to eliminate expectations.
The duo purposefully breaches the boundaries of pop music by touching on many influences, including hip hop and R&B, that consistently shake up their sound. What remains will continue to be a vision that deviates from the mainstream in a bid to “make people feel real” as they listen and expose their vulnerabilities – even those they didn’t know they had.
ABOUT OLIVIA LUNNY
Olivia Lunny is a Canadian singer-songwriter from Winnipeg with a sound that fuses catchy pop melodies and alternative waves. Since the age of twelve, Olivia has used writing music as an outlet to express her feelings. Songwriting has always been Olivia’s mode of self-expression, as well as a way to observe the world around her. Her evolving sound harnesses a mellow vibe with velvety vocals and ambient guitar sounds, combined with elegant lyrics exploring universal topics such as heartbreak and navigating the uncertain waters of entering adulthood.
Lunny has mastered the craft of original songwriting by combining emotional chord progressions with her incredible vocal range. The ambience in her recordings also creates a vast space for listeners to carefully heed each and every word sung. The selective use of percussion driving each track places listeners at the forefront of her sound, while presenting them with an irresistible urge to tap, dance, and sing along to her delicate stories. Olivia’s distinctive vocals remain a constant throughout her music.
Lunny has been active in the Winnipeg scene for a few years, snagging opening slots for some high-profile artists and earning a Western Canadian Music Award nomination for Pop Artist of the Year for her debut, self-titled EP, released in February 2018. She also landed a Chosen Artist title on CTV’s Season 2 of The Launch.
