WAYNE HORVITZ’S SWEETER THAN THE DAY

(Seattle/Vancouver/Amsterdam)

Wayne Horvitz piano, composition; Peggy Lee cello; James Meger bass; Michael Vatcher drums

“On piano, Horvitz is economical yet lyrical, never venturing far from the strong melodic hooks which characterize his compositions, but constantly working small surprises. An irresistible antidote to gray days.” – The Wire, UK.

Formed in 1999, Sweeter Than the Day began as the acoustic incarnation of Zony Mash. This one-off Hamilton version of the band will be exclusive to Something Else! Festival.

ALLISON CAMERON (SOLO)
