Ryan McMahon w\/ Jeff Plankenhorn
Ryan McMahon likes to tell people he’s a late bloomer. But when looking at the body of work the 43-year-old from Ladysmith, British Columbia has amassed since 2006, he’s certainly made up for lost time. With six releases under his name and two with his side project Lion Bear Fox, Ryan has established himself as one of western Canada’s most prolific singer/songwriters, leading to multiple Vancouver Island Music Awards and supporting slots for Burton Cummings, Tom Cochrane, Mother Mother, Lee Harvey Osmond and others.
Touring in support of his latest release ‘Live Now’. The creation of ‘Live Now’ began in early 2022 with the recording of “One More Fire,” arranged with JUNO-nominated country artist Aaron Pritchett.
Engaging and honest, Ryan McMahon’s music is written from the heart and sung from the soul. It is as rock as folk can get before it starts to roll. A blend of folk, Americana and rock following the lead of his peers Jason Isbell, Nathaniel Rateliff, Father John Misty, Israel Nash. The singer songwriter has enough wit and charm to get through any situation and his songwriting fits every emotion into his live performance.
Jeff Plankenhorn, singer-songwriter and all things strings multi-instrumentalist—guitar, lap steel, mandolin, piano, upright bass—began his career as a boy soprano in Ohio. After studying music theory and composition at University of Michigan, Texas beckoned when Ray Wylie Hubbard enticed Jeff to join his band. Slide guitar virtuoso, Jeff spent his early career backing the likes of Hubbard and Joe Ely. His patented lap slide guitar, “the Plank,” with a distinctive sound derived from the instrument's square neck and electric guitar body, netted him an Austin Music Award in 2017.
Now a potent solo artist, his larger-than-life presence on stage binds together a host of talents into a powerful whole. His songwriting, expressive vocals, and musicianship are front and center on his latest album, Alone At Sea, produced by Colin Linden (Bruce Cockburn, Keb Mo.) New sonic territory is explored on this gem of a long player.
Live & streamed. Doors 7pm/ Show 8pm.
