Hillside Summer Festival 2015
July 24 - 26
Bry Webb first entered the public eye as lead singer of The Constantines. In 2010, he moved back to Guelph, Ontario, and released the album Provider, which garnered a fair amount of critical praise. American Songwriter called it, "unpretentious and understanding." In the years that followed, he toured as much as he could, including opening for Feist's 2010 Canadian tour, a solo tour of Italy in a small car, and a show in Transylvania. Webb was also commissioned to write a song for the popular NPR program This American Life, garnered a Genie nomination for Best Original Song for Big Smoke in the film This Beautiful City, and his songs have been featured in Arctic rescue and Canadian teen vampire TV shows. Most recently, Webb reunited with the Constantines to reissue their 2003 classic, Shine A Light, and play some shows in 2014.
Bry Webb's second solo record, Free Will, was released in May 2014 on Idee Fixe Records, and features his dynamic band, The Providers (Nathan Lawr - drums, Anna Ruddick - upright bass, Rich Burnett - lap steel, and Aaron Goldstein - pedal steel). Bry is pleased as punch to be bringing the whole band, and his family, to the Hillside Festival this year.
