Music for your mind’s eye. With songs that play like home movies rich in imagery and characters, Colour Film is the stage name of Hamilton’s Matthew de Zoete. This concert will be an intimate ensemble performance of new songs – the raw material for a future album. These songs continue the cinematic approach of Super 8, Colour Film’s 2016 release that blends pop and folk in an atmospheric soundscape conjured with producer Les Cooper (Jill Barber, Good Lovelies). Imagine Nick Drake cheering up a bit and meeting Beck.

Sawicki has been active in the Hamilton Music Scene since 2003. In that time he has shared the stage with such acts as Dave Bidini (Rheostatics), Selina Martin, Tomi Swick, Tom Wilson, and Max Kerman (Arkells). His 2011 album Nothing for No One was nominated for Independant Album of the Year at the Hamilton Music Awards. In 2015, he released a self-titled album with a strong focus on traditional roots rhythms and arrangements that was described by Dusty Organ as being “rooted in storytelling and rustic Canadian musicianship, (the album) shifts from western-style blues riffs, to dense, foot-stomping folk melodies”. In 2018 Sawicki is set to release a new collection of songs collaborating with long time friends and bandmates Dan Rodrgues and Andrew Barbisan for the project.
