New Music to check out: Eastern Rise by Terence Jack

Eastern Rise was written about the different faces of love that we meet. It was sort of putting faces to those personalities and how when you’re with someone you’re meeting and romancing each of them.

I tend to write subliminally rather than literal about a specific event. I was going through such change in my life shedding all things that I had thought were my identity. It left me bare, and in a spot to be able to create. We sat with synthesizers, and drum machines and ran instruments through tape machines and just didn’t let fear or anything creep in.

CATCH TERENCE JACK ON TOUR NOW

Our show we aim to be as dynamic as possible with lows and highs throughout the set. 3 part harmonies with some pretty anthemic sections and a ton of energy.

Since, we have completed a concept trailer, currently crunching numbers and flipping through calendar dates as we prepare for delivery to propose and secure investment.

But when I said that nothing had been done I erred in one important matter. We had definitely committed ourselves and were halfway out of our ruts. We had put down our passage money — booked a sailing to Bombay. This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence.

“Until one is committed, there is hesitance, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of inititative there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.”

 – W. H. Murray in the Scottish Himalaya Expedition

This is our first walk in the park so it has been a tight rope and perhaps it is a club that doesn’t always hear us at the stage door, but we are ‘knockin and it is time to start rockin’

Ben Caplan & The Casual Smokers

Featured Video Play Icon

Rugged, raspy, and roaring with charisma, Ben Caplan’s voice is to song as smoke is to bourbon: perfectly coupled. He is a songwriter and performer who is bold in both range and ferocity. The music is fuelled by a quality of melodrama and powerful lyricism that sets Caplan apart from his peers. Either solo or backed by his band, The Casual Smokers, Ben Caplan has captured the attention of music fans and media across Canada, Australia, and throughout Europe.

Ben Caplan is supported by upright bass, drums, Eastern European inspired strings, and occasionally horns. Ben himself moves between guitar and piano, marking his place in the world’s music landscape with an outrageous musicality and a growling spirit.

Besides writing and recording, Ben Caplan is almost perpetually on tour, having played more than 1000 shows since the release of his debut album in late 2011. His songs, his voice, his humour, and his charm collude to create a rhapsodically energetic live show – an elegant cacophony drawing fans in ever widening circles.

Keep Up To Date on Ben Caplan

In 2016, Ben Caplan will continue to break new ground with dates planned across North America and around the world. His highly anticipated second album, Birds with Broken Wings, is prospected to be released internationally in late spring/early summer of 2015.

Behind the Music with The Palms

The overall message behind Future Love is the idea that we all live, love, learn, fuck up and live again.  As long as we all strive to be the best version of ourselves as possible, then we’re doing it right.  There’s become this culture of viciously attacking people online after they’ve been caught doing something illegal or immoral.  As if society has taken it upon themselves to become the moral police or something.  It’s like, no shit, we all make mistakes, it’s part of life and the people feeling the need to anonymously slander a stranger on twitter for getting caught doing cocaine at a baseball game or something, need to get over themselves and worry about their own shit. Our mentality is…fuck it, we’ve smoked it, we’ve drank it, we’ve stolen some shit and we’ve hurt some feelings and we’ve learned a lot in the process.  Stop judging other people for living their lives and focus on your own.
