His first visit was in 2009. The guy left his boots all those years ago, and we KEPT them, set aside since then. Now Chris Velan is going to get his boots back, and maybe transport back to the INCREDIBLE indie/folk greatness he displayed back then.

His looping pedals allow arrangements with his vocals and guitar…and the result is massive.

As for Ria Mae…it’s her first time to Phog. Here’s her bio:
“Ria Mae has had an outstanding year with the release of her debut full-length album, Under Your Skin, produced by Asif Illyas (MIR). Under Your Skin won the 2012 East Coast Music Award for Pop Recording of the Year, Ria was a finalist for the 2011 International Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, and was the Regional Winner and National Runner-up for the 2012 Canada-wide Radio Star Contest.

A versitile artist, Ria Mae creates slick pop songs with universal themes of longing, love lost, and hearts found. Ria toured with Melissa Ferrick and opened for her 17 dates in the US and in Canada; Ferrick is a Boston-based singer-songwriter with two decades of experience and a rapid fan base. From Massachusetts to New York and Nashville, they made one stop in Toronto at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern for the only Canadian date. Back in Halifax, Ria performed a sold-out CD release show and debuted the music video for her first single, the title track, “Under Your Skin.”

And joining these two will be none other than Windsor’s Kenneth MacLeod. Looking very, very forward to this evening!
