"Rae Spoon is one of the most important musicians working in Canada today." - Now Magazine

"The mark of a gifted songwriter is the ability to create the most emotion with the fewest notes. Rae Spoon is a master of restraint, conveying both hope and hurt at once through simple melodies." - Exclaim!

Geoff Berner

For the past 15 years or so, Jewish-Canadian accordion player/singer-songwriter/novelist Geoff Berner has travelled the world. He's played in bars, cafes, festivals, and the occasional stadium. He's performed in 17 countries, on national radio in 7 of them.

All over Canada, Europe, and America, Berner has garnered a sizable, passionate following of odd, bookish people who like to drink. He packs venues in places like Berlin, London, Oslo, Zurich, Seattle, Toronto, Edmonton and his home city of Vancouver.

As a musician, Berner is mainly known as a practitioner of the "klezmer-punk" style, which combines the traditional folk music of Eastern European Jews with punk's aggressive energy and disdain for slick perfection. The new album Canadiana Grotesquica is a brief departure. Berner describes it as a "country-tinged singer-songwriter affair." It was produced by Paul Rigby, a brilliant arranger and guitarist, nominated for a Grammy for his work with Neko Case.
