THE B.C. NORTHERN
EXHIBITION ISN’T READY
TO TURN IN YET.

BRINGING BACK THE
TROUBADOUR SPIRIT, BLACK
SPRUCE BOG IS TELLING THE
STORIES OF THE STORIES OF
THE LAND FROM WHENCE THEY
CAME – AS BAND ANYWAY.

DANIEL MCLEOD IS NOT A NEW
FACE TO THE PRINCE GEORGE
ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
COMMUNITY. HIS STUNNING
PHOTOGRAPHY HAS BEEN
FEATURED IN THE SCENE PG
BEFORE AND HE WAS ONCE
A RESIDENT IN THE ARTISTS
COLLECTIVE - THE PICTURE
BOX - DOWNTOWN.

IF GETTING ATTACKED
BY A CGI CREATURE
WHILE YOU HAVE YOUR
JUNK OUT IS A RITE
OF PASSAGE FOR A
SUCCESSFUL ACTOR,
THEN MADISON SMITH IS
WELL ON HIS WAY TO A
PROSPEROUS CAREER.

THIS ISN’T THE TIME
TO HIT THE SNOOZE
BUTTON. NOT WHEN
THERE’S THREE DAYS
OF MUSIC, ART AND
GETTING WEIRD TO
EXPERIENCE.

IT STARTS AT HOME FOR
EOIN FOLEY AND GARRETT
FEDORKIW. BOTH RAISED
IN SOCIAL HOUSEHOLDS,
THE FRIENDS AND COOWNERS
OF NANCY O’S
HAD PARENTS WHO WERE
ALWAYS ENTERTAINING.

Lance, Kirby and Steve make up country/rock cover band The Killbillies. The Scene PG sat down with bassist/vocalist Steve to talk about where the trio comes from and where they’re going..

THIS IS THE MOST OFFENSIVE
QUESTION I’VE EVER
BEEN ASKED - AND I’VE
BEEN ASKED WHETHER I’M
A LESBIAN OR JUST REALLY
FEMININE IN PICTURES.

LEE-WAI YU IS THE VOICE.
THAT’S NOT GRANDSTANDING.
IT’S A FACT.
HE EVEN HAS THE TROPHY
TO PROVE IT.

Imagine you have an interest that borders on obsession. It conjures excitement
into the small hours of the morning, making sleep elusive. It is an abyss, gently
drawing in most all of your available time and money. Over time, this escalation
of commitment causes others to question your reasoning and no matter how
concise your explanation, you simply cannot make them understand.

“THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT
PLAY MUSIC, BUT THERE’S VERY
FEW THAT STAY TOGETHER,” SAID
BRAD FOSTER.

THERE’S NO SUCH
THING AS HALF WAY
WHEN IT COMES TO
MUSIC FOR MEMBERS
OF THE BURDEN.

IT’S HARD TO EXPRESS
YOURSELF IF YOU DON’T
KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

IF YOU BUILD IT, THE
MUSIC WILL COME.

You have to
dance like no
one’s watching.

Like the old cliché goes, what a 365 it has been. I will always remember the hiring process because of what sold me on Prince George – Costco. For the record, they don’t do endorsements, although I wouldn’t mind some free gas, but I digress. So how on earth did that seal the deal? Well if they set up shop here, I couldn’t imagine there would be much missing from what I was used to in big bad Toronto.

“We had great, great music produced here in Prince George,” said singer Cole Pruden. “There’s so much thirst for it, but now it’s really dry.” “It’s not like we want to get ahead of everyone in this town, we want the music scene to grow with us,” noted guitarist Ryan Wishart. The six band members – Pruden, Wishart, covocalist Cole Franz, bassist Riley Murphy, guitarist Cameron Cochlan and drummer Ryan Mathers – are ready to play anywhere at the drop of a hat. “We started off our, our first show was with a DJ, and the crowd actually really adored our music and wanted us to play more,” said Pruden. “Those two groups don’t really mix but we did it anyways and we got really good feedback from our style.” It’s a style that features extended-range guitars á la Lamb of God, Meshugga and Thy Art is Murder that’s still in a fairly experimental stage, said Cochlan. Toss in some 1960s and 70s prog rock and you might have a starting point for the Blood Hoürglass sound. “It’s fairly heavy though, the lower-tuned guitars strings, two vocals, crazy drum and basses. It’s trying to take it heavier,” said Franz, the newest addition to the band.
