The Lay Awakes

Artesian Presents welcomes Anna Paddock & Patrick Anderson of The Lay Awakes, now on tour with their self-titled EP. Local Cellist Thomas Gadd is set to open the show.

Thursday, December 1st at the Artesian. Doors Open at 7:30PM. The Show starts at 8PM. Tickets are $15 in Advance or $20 at the Door.

THE LAY AWAKES self-titled debut EP is intimate and tense, featuring original acoustic-pop songs, including the award-winning “Great Divide” (SongwriterUniverse Song of the Month). Recorded in Brooklyn, and produced by the up and coming Jeremy McDonald (Kevin Garrett’s Mellow Drama, The Welcome Wagon’s A Work Of Love In Progress), the album captures and shapes the sound of this songwriting duo at a promising moment.

ANNA (piano, vocals) has roots in rural Manitoba, but grew up in various parts of Canada and the US. Her musical beginnings trace back to classical piano studies. After studying music at Trinity Western University and composition at New York University, Anna released a solo album in 2013, toured both in Canada and the US, and most notably opened for Paul Simon at New York’s Beacon Theater.

PATRICK (guitar, vocals) was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and grew up in Fergus, Ontario. His music lineage goes back to the family campfire and songbook. Often with his guitar in tow, Patrick spent many years representing Canada internationally in wheelchair basketball and is a three-time Paralympic gold medalist.
