4 Spherical artists are performing at Artwells Festival from Aug 3-6, 2012

Artswells Festival Poster

Hello Folks,

This coming week-end is going to be a magical one at the Artswell’s Festival,
I have had the honor of being a part of this festival on three different
occasions, and each time it changed my perception on life, uplifted myself to
keep following my dreams, and it has helped me grow to become the man I am today.

Let me give you a visual, the Artwells Festival is located in Wells, BC,
a small town in Northern BC, and in the middle of this town is a school,
with a road surrounding the school, and houses surrounding that road, and up
the road are some halls, art galleries, a little church, some local
businesses, and in the summer, a maximum of 400 people live there…

.. my point, the festival takes over the entire town, in a beautiful way,
and there are tons of great musicians from all over Canada playing for
4 days straight, so anyone that has not made it to this festival, do yourself
a favour, if you’re in need of some rejuvenation to your spirits, and
a great, life altering experience, make sure you go to the Artswells Festival
from Aug 3-6, 2012.

Spherical artists that have the fortune to perform at the Artswells
Festival this year are Wax Mannequin, Corwin Fox, Jenny Omnichord and
Sodapop Somers (aka OK Cobra), and they have many other great acts
performing this year that you don’t want to miss..

Spherical Productions Summer News!!!

West 100 tour for SP

Hello Folks,

Spherical Productions has been really busy as of lately, and I thought I would give you
all a heads up on some of the tours coming up, and other news, so here it is…

First off, I want you all to know that Kirby got an audition for the TV show ‘The Voice’,
and so he will be in New York between July 20-25, hoping to get himself a slot on this
prime time TV show in the Fall .. good luck Kirby!!!

I am proud to say since 2002, Spherical Productions has booked 100 tours, and who
better than for the longest running artist on SP, Wax Mannequin, as part of his up-
coming Annual Western Canadian Tour … also, Wax and CA Smith both got accepted
to perform at Supercrawl on Sept 14/15, so that is also AWESOME!!

Blind Mule has just finished their debut self/titled EP, and are touring for 10 days
to the Brandon Folk Festival and back, doing a soft launch of this EP on tour, with
a limited edition of 100 copies available, and they have just launched their official
website for the first time, and here it is, so check it out ..

Spherical has always been about tours in the summer, and this summer, SP has
selectively freelanced out 2 tours for 2 great artists, they are Jenny Omnichord
(Weewerk) and Terra Lightfoot (Sonic Unyon), and for the fall, SP is also working
on a tour for The Donefors … and gonna be working together with a great jamband
