Tranzac Presents: Bernice with The Ruth Garbus Trio

April 10 @ 7:00 pm

2X polaris nominated, Canada’s beloved experimental pop group BERNICE is the project of Robin Dann (voice, songs) with her longtime collaborators Thom Gill (keyboards), Philippe Melanson (e-percussion), Daniel Fortin (bass) and Felicity Williams (voice). For more than a decade, the band has made music which wanders into r&b, neo-soul, and free music, and coalesces through Robin’s desire to commune with audiences through song and lyric. Currently with Telephone Explosion Records, the band released Cruisin’ in April, 2023. Pitchfork called it “exuberant, eccentric, and an underground concern”.

RUTH GARBUS (she/they) is a singular vocalist and songwriter who has been writing, performing, and recording music for two decades. Her most recent album, Alive People, was released on Orindal Records in August 2023 to much critical acclaim. The music incorporates wild improvisatory freedom into complex, soothing compositions rooted in multiple traditions, from folk to jazz and r&b. She performs her solo material as a trio with elie mcafee-hahn and Nick Bisceglia. She is also a member of the experimental quintet Gloyd, as well as the trio Earth Flower with Sam Gendel and Phil Melanson.
