Two girls. Two opposite worlds. Two musical storytellers colliding. Jocelyn Alice grew up in the world of music competitions—from small town fairs all the way to becoming runner up on Canada’s Pop Stars when she was sixteen. Lisa Jacobs grew up playing bass in her family band, at church, festivals and in smoke-filled bars. Although they developed as musicians in different worlds, their love, need and desire to tell a story through music was the same. Jocelyn is a heartbreak hero. Her unique voice, fierce with passion, yet fragile with emotion, frees a story where all who listen are changed. After landing a publishing deal, her songs played on the hit shows One Tree Hill and Pretty Little Liars. Studio producers, Russell Broom and Mitch Lee, hired Jocelyn as a session vocalist to record songs for the hit movie Dear Santa, as well as for nation-wide commercials. She also recently shared the stage with Mos Def. Lisa shares her story through song. The Bass, guitar and piano serve as mediums for conveying love, brokenness,strength and joy. As a bassist, she has toured across North America and internationally. Her groove-ability in all styles solidified her reputation as a sought-after musician. She has shared the stage with Bedouin Soundclash, Theory of a Deadman, Los Lobos, Emerson Drive and many others. As individuals, they have both developed solid careers in the music industry. In 2011, jocelyn & lisa decided to venture out together. In addition to playing live shows, they were featured in the “Crave” documentary by LA filmmaker and best-selling novelist, Erwin McManus and recorded a commercial for Habitat for Humanity. December 2012 marks the release of their first EP, “Weary Warrior”. A track from this album is featured in the documentary, “1000 Days” by award-winning director, Jeth Weinrich (Jann Arden, Chantal Kreviazuk, 54-40), who is also producing a music video for the song. jocelyn & lisa have been selected as guest artists on CBC Radio and to perform at the TransCanada Alberta Music Series. The music they create embodies the ongoing parallels in their lives - much light/much darkness, much love/much hurt, abundant mistakes/extravagant grace, desperate brokenness/undeniable strength. Songwriting, storytelling and passionate performance are packaged into a unique sound-blend of pop, soul, reggae and funk. jocelyn & lisa have an undeniable chemistry that permeates the music and penetrates the listener.
Show starts at 9pm.
