Named one of CBC Musics Hidden Gems for 2016, Moxam’s sound has been likened to Neil Young, Cat Stevens, and David Gray. In a special evening of music at Victoria Playhouse, he is joined by Australia’s Liz Stringer and Charlottetown favourite Nick Doneff.

Since his move to PEI in 2013, Ontario native Nick Doneff has become a staple of the Island music scene. Though he is busy as a sideman for Island favourites, like Nudie and Liam Corcoran, Doneff has recently emerged as an artist in his own right.

His 2016 debut, self-titled album touches on his five-year tenure in Toronto, his adjustment to life in PEI, and a few seldom-sung facts of life as faced by the proverbial Canadian 20-something.

There’s a comforting sense of familiarity in Tim Moxam’s music, like the feeling of a soft summer breeze after the passing of a cold, grey winter. It’s his soulful voice that floats over twangy acoustic guitar; his vivid storytelling of lost love; his breezy, warm atmospheric tones that swell and crash.

Yet when it comes to conjuring Moxam’s predecessors, contemporaries and influences – no one comes to mind. He exists in a world that deftly explores the space between country-rock and folk, with a talent for carving out memorable melodies in unlikely places. On his debut LP Soft Summer, Moxam shows he’s a singer-songwriter wholly of his own.
