Tom Holliston + Support live at No Vultures
October 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
We are pleased to announce the first live event at NO VULTURES, 15 union street, Dewsbury. Introducing….
Tom Holliston and Selina Martin (full set) Canada
David Constanza (Art of Flying solo set) New Mexico
Tom Holliston is a self-taught independent rock musician and songwriter from Lund, British Columbia, Canada. He’s probably best-known internationally for his 16 years touring and recording with legendary Canadian bands Nomeansno and the Hanson Brothers. Tom’s solo work (under his own name and his band Show Business Giants) generally consists of alternative rock songs, characterized by considerable musical variance with playful and obscure pop culture themes. On-stage he displays a singular blend of charm, humour, and social commentary. https://www.facebook.com/tomholliston/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Holliston

Selina Martin was raised on a small farm in Canada, now dividing her time between Toronto and France, extraordinarily acclaimed Canadian songwriter and vocalist Selina Martin pushes the boundaries of pop, rock, singer/songwriter, punk and experimental music.
She has released 4 albums, all highly acclaimed – www.selinamartin.com/press – and according to Rokline Magazine, Martin can be “…compared to groundbreaking female songstresses whose art has transcended the usual Rock-Star / Pop-Diva template of popular music, icons such as England’s Kate Bush, Lene Lovitch, and Iceland’s Björk”.
On her latest album she has morphed into a post-pop pioneer. Filled with raw energy and emotion, “…caruso’s brain…” strikes a perfect balance between sparseness and fullness, acoustics and electronics, and between control and abandonment.
It has been described variously by critics as “provocative”, “brilliant”, “masterful”, “superb” and “genius”.
David Constanza (Art of Flying)
Art of Flying take a ghostly, lost-on-the-moor sound and transfer it to the desert. Their music moves from stonerish low rock to raw-boned country folk, Dylan-esque word paintings to Tom Waits-like demishanties, and, sometimes, there’s even an unlikely hint of Kate Bush.
