Hachey Winter Tour 2016 web

Hello Folks,

This past fall of 2015, Hachey the MouthPEACE was successfully chosen to perform at the Coldsnap Festival in Prince George, BC, and instead of just going to perform for the weekend, Hachey and SP decided to send him on a 2 week tour throughout BC and into Alberta.

Hachey has been on fire in the last couple years, he has toured Western Canada 2 times, performed at many festivals, including Supercrawl x2, Hesstival, In the Soil Arts Festival, Greenbelt Harvest Picnic, Artswells Festival x2, and even headlined A Midsummer Nights Dream Festival. He has won Hip Hop acts of the Year and Special Instrumentalist of the year at the Hamilton Music Awards, was crowned Much Music Beatbox Champion, and won the first ever Canadian Beatbox Loopstation Championship in April 2015. He has performed with the Boris Brott Orchestra, was a Juno Awards Conference Performer with Hamilton heavyweights, The Arkells and Terra Lightfoot, and to top it off, was hand picked to perform the JUNO Awards warm-up show to 10,000+ people at the First Ontario Centre.

Spherical Productions at Folk Music Ontario this weekend!!!

2013 Posters TOGETHER 2 web

Hello Folks,

Whenever it comes to music conferences, which has the potential of helping musical acts with opportunities throughout Canada and beyond, I always try to showcase the artists on the Spherical Productions roster, as much as I can. This year at Folk Music Ontario (formerly The OCFF), I secured 2 Private showcases, but this was before I knew who was available, and it turned out the majority of the SP acts were not available, with the exception of Kirby and Spookey Ruben, so instead of canceling the showcases, I came up with an idea.

As a big supporter of Hamilton artists, as well as festival manager at the Hamilton Music Awards, I got to thinking that I rarely see any Hamilton artists at this specific conference, so I decided to rearrange my focus and showcase artists from Hamilton (with a couple exceptions), and so I reached out to a bunch of great artists from Hamilton, and within a couple days, I am proud to say that there are now many great Hamilton artists going to be showcasing at Folk Music Ontario for your pleasure and mine.

If you are going to Folk Music Ontario this weekend, I highly recommend coming to the Spherical Productions showcase in Room 313 on Fri, Oct 18 and Sat, Oct 19, 2013 between 11:00pm and 3:00am, to check out these great artists, and I am not talking as an agent, since I do not represent the majority of these artists, I am recommending these artists as a fan.

Joey Balducchi, President

BIOGRAPHY:

Born into the Icelandic community in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Lindy
Vopnfjörd started his music career early. By four, he was singing
cautionary songs about nuclear war and traveling around with
his musician parents and extended family in a bus. The digital
release of his most recent album, his career seventh, called
Young Waverer was on February 26, 2013. Ambitiously recorded
via “Crowdfunding” and only available via iTunes or Lindy’s
website, it is a soaring landscape of stream of consciousness
stories about love and loss, alongside unique tales about his
upbringing on icy Lake Winnipeg.

Bulgarian born producer/composer/solo artist, close friend and
music collaborator Todor Kobakov sharpens the production pencil
and draws a definitive mark in the mind with the twelve tracks
(he also contributes piano). An impressive Canadian musical
collective also brings their talents to Young Waverer in
Luke Doucet who contributes guitar to a handfulf songs and
Thomas D’Arcy formerly of Small Sins and Major Maker who
played bass, as did other Major Maker-mates Stephen
Krecklo and Ian LeFeuvre (Kathleen Edwards, k-os) and John
Obercian (Sarah Harmer). Young Waverer was mixed by Grammy
nominated John O’Mahony (Metric, Coldplay, U2) at Electric Lady
Studios in New York City.

Since 2006, Lindy has been the lead singer and co-songwriter for
the indie rock band Major Maker. Major Maker took by force in the
summer of 2007 when two of their songs, ‘Rollercoaster’ and “Talk
To You”, aired in national television commercials. The “Rollercoaster”
single debuted at #57 on the Canadian Billboard Hot 100 Chart and #2
on iTunes Canada Rock Chart, while the video was added to national
video outlets Much Music, MuchMoreMusic and MTV Canada.

Following the success of Rollercoaster, Major Maker released the
People Carrier EP in Canada which hit # 2 on the highly influential
CBC Radio 3 top 30 Chart’.
