Duchess Says with Partner and Wares | The Rec Room | Saturday, 20. January 2018

Duchess Says was created in late 2003 by four influent members of the Church of Budgerigars who decided to collaborate together in a common musical project. Their goal was to insure a faithful representation of the message of the Duchess (or spiritual budgie) through a precise artistic dialog. Duchess Says is serving us a
repertory of "moog rock" songs strong in images and enormously intense live performances!

Their musical influences range from no wave, new wave, punk, to cinema and visual arts. If you pay attention, you could see them perform in the most unusual places such as golf courses, shop windows, vacant building sites etc. Duchess Says has the
mandate to decontextualise the rock and to promote simultaneously their Church on the way.

Partner is the "mature" effort of two best friends named Josée Caron and Lucy Niles. Borne of their bizarre and fortuitous friendship, Partner confidently harnesses the infinite power of Rock to explore a
variety of niche yet strangely universal themes. After a freakishly productive year of writing, recording, and touring, Partner
are ready to release their debut to the world, titled In Search of Lost Time (September 08, 2017). Their enthusiastic and action packed live set has led to them being named the "best new band in Canada" in the Globe and Mail, and although "Partner hasn't even released an album yet, [watching] one of their sets, it's clear right away
that they've arrived fully formed.

Wares is a musical project engineered by Edmonton songwriter Cassia J. Hardy. From teeth rattling electric convulsions to soft-spoken acoustic refrains, the musical inflections explored on each Wares release are as varied as they are enthralling.
