Brent Tyler and Jory Kinjo – July 31st, 2:00 pm.
Brent Tyler & Jory Kinjo are two journeyman song-slinging front men breaking genres and healing hearts. Brent’s style is influenced by the likes of Martin Sexton, Jeff Buckley, Dave Matthews, and Jack Johnson. Jory’s influenced by r&b/soul catalogs of Motown and Stax Records with a tasty appreciation for the crooked rhythms of Jamaica infused with blues. Two pals. Guitars & Bass.
Brent Tyler is a seven-foot paradox. Tyler’s intricate guitar style combined with a soulful presence and dynamic elastic voice contrast his obvious football frame. A voice that bellows the foundation, yet dynamically delicate and sincere, Tyler balances the subtlety of honest and introspective folk music with catchy and powerful hooks and melodies. Tyler’s music is lyrically textured with real life. Honesty and love, hope and healing. A Western Canadian giant…Big Man. Big Sound. Big Love.
Jory Kinjo is a skilled assassin. Jazz trained and road-warrior seasoned, Kinjo has performed everything from R&B to Rock to Reggae to Ska to Soul all over the world. Kinjo’s original, infectious acoustic ska-reggae grooves hard and rides easy. An attack mentality to live performance, Jory brings an incredibly positive aura and old school chops indicative of his enigmatic presence. A monster musician…Gin/Soda Soul with Champagne Chops.
Together, Tyler Kinjo push each other’s musical boundaries by breaking barriers and expanding expectations. An eclectic array of Soul-Ska-Folk-Funk-Roots-Rocksteady easy on the ears and heavy on the healing. Imagine Bill Withers, Bob Marley, Martin Sexton, and Dave Matthews were puff-puff-passing spinning Marvin Gaye and Jeff Buckley on vinyl at The Roots house. Heavy hitters. Heartfelt delivery.
Brent and Jory will be performing on July 31st, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Caetani Cultural Centre. Bring your blankets, folding chairs, and a picnic to enjoy a relaxing afternoon of music presented by artists Brent Tyler and Jory Kinjo.
