Calgary-based singer-songwriter Laura Hickli recently made a stop at the Café Racer. Backed by sister Kerry Hickli (keys) and Taylor Cochrane (drums), Laura played songs from her Flowstate album as well as new, yet-to-be recorded material. Her set was so well received, the enthusiastic audience demanded an encore.
And it feels great to say this: ticket options are thoughtfully priced. You can also get camping tickets, which would be worth it. There are many activities going on too, from kayaking to tree climbing to meditation. Big thanks to Artist for arranging Timber!
PS: There will be Midnight Secret Shows. Follow Timber’s Twitter & Facebook for updates.
French musician French Kiwi Juice, abbreviated as FKJ, visited the Showbox in April. Originating in Tours, France, under the given name of Vincent Fenton, FKJ released his self-titled debut in 2017. This year was also a big one for him, as he has a new single out called “Leave My Home,” and he got married in March. Plus, FKJ should have a new album very soon. Thanks to Casey Brevig for getting photos of FKJ’s first of two sold-out Seattle dates.
