A Bit of Honesty
One of my favourite shows that I had here this summer was Beams. If you were there to catch the gig, you probably know exactly why I'm saying this. In fact, I feel pretty gosh darn strongly that this is one of the best bands in the city that you don't know about....yet, but hopefully that changes very soon.
In the middle of the city there is a tree. Surrounded by glass, steel and concrete, the tree grows lush and strong despite its environs. A young woman is sitting under this tree, strumming on her banjo and humming the haunting melodies that will become the songs for her band. This is the world that Toronto’s Beams dwells in. It’s a place that’s familiar and comfortable while still being fresh and exciting. A place where old and new combine to create something unique.
