Want some magnets in yr noodle soup? Some zap in that sriracha? Some synth in yr hoisin? Hoop there it is: Rare beef, no tripe.
Kevin Stebner is a Calgary mover and shaker who has been active in several scenes. You may recognize him as lead man of the passionate and very loud Stalwart Sons or perhaps you remember him as 8-bit virtuoso Greyscreen. In this new incarnation K. Stebner’s Cold Water is the rambling gruff back hand of a haggard folk pilot. Stebner has also released a book of poetry in months past and that reflects here as well. His lyrics play off the music in a sombre give and take (see “Cave Not In”) and thus seem to revel in their own individual weight.
You can see Stebner play tonight at Wunderbar with Sean Nicholas Savage (Montreal), Dave Smith (Toronto), and Edmonton’s own Smokey. Don’t miss this, it’s a dream team!
