When grit and groove meets softly swaying silk, the thrift-folk* of Liv Cazzola & Braden Phelan comes to life. With an electric chemistry and quick-witted sense of humour, they’ve threaded their colours and textures together to create the terrifying two-headed kitten that is Tragedy Ann. Playing with folk and alt. blues yarns, Cazzola and Phelan are a pair of accomplished mood-setters, storytellers, and chill-givers. Having toured across Canada, performed at prominent folk festivals and released their debut EP Stumbling in 2016, the pair is currently charming listening rooms around Ontario, and working on their full-length record. Tragedy Ann is known to make audiences laugh, cry, hug complete strangers, and is the only cure for the common cold. Bring the purr.
*Thrift-Folk: An amalgamation of well-worn musical fabrics that are repurposed and given new life in a bold and dynamic fashion. Playing guitar/accordion/ukulele-driven tunes, Liv Cazzola & Braden Phelan are dedicated and diverse songwriters who put particular focus on engaging and thought-provoking lyrics.
