Paragon Cause and Alonso, Saturday, November 23 at 9PM
Gatineau/Ottawa band Paragon Cause is a musical duo that has taken an eclectic approach to their music influences, fusing disparate sounds including hip-hop, jazz piano, ‘80s synthesizers and ‘50s guitars to deliver their personal brand of atmospheric rock-tinged electronica.
Hailing from southern Ontario, Marnie is a trained jazz singer, with a voice that effortlessly captures qualities both modern and timeless. Kirwan, a Cape Breton native, offers a perfect counterpoint to Marine’s influences by adding a little rock to the mix, urban percussive rhythms, shimmering ‘50s melodrama and gothic undertones.
The music of ALONSO is a drama of intricately crafted songs with trip hop, dub and deep house combined with Chapman Stick, digitally altered classical guitars, reimagined analog synths and intimately lyrical vocals.
