Kyp Harness Band Poverty Line Show
June 3 @ 10:00 pm - 11:30 pmPWYC
Kyp Harness plays with Tania Gill, Nick Burson and Victor Bateman.
Wherever the name of Kyp Harness appears, the term “Songwriter’s-songwriter” soon follows. While often used ambiguously, in Kyp’s case it’s very accurate: his most fervent fans are other songwriters from both the folk and alternative music circles. Daniel Lanois, Mary Margaret O’Hara, Ron Sexsmith, Townes Van Zandt, Bob Wiseman and Bob Snider have all tipped their hats to Kyp at every opportunity.
Focusing on the songwriting aspect of the creative process has produced from Kyp more than a decade of recordings, each with critical acclaim and recognition from the sort of folks who pay attention to such stuff. From local reviewers to national campus radio to international publications, Kyp has been receiving raves from those who seek out good music, while still flying under the radar of the mainstream star-making mechanisms of this industry.
Versatility in his writing allows Kyp to pull off the impressive feat of being a swaggering punk at one moment, and a poignant folk balladeer the next. A natural storyteller, the lyrics are rich in detail, emotional and filled with poetic metaphors. Sometimes stripped down into a songwriter and sometimes backed with a band the delivery is always slightly off-centre but always deeply personal. Kyp is a performer that can project his personality from the stage, winning over audiences with sheer energy and by refusing to compromise the spirit of the song in any circumstance.
