This was an incredibly intimate experience with plenty of interaction between the audience and the band. A wonderful evening with wonderful people!

I saw Said The Whale in Seattle and Port Angeles the night before. They were great on both nights. My only complaint was they have a traveling photographer . Who was constantly stepping in my line of site . Or being generally distracting on stage with the band. If you are not playing an instrument or singing. Stay off the stage. That guy was annoying. How many pictures do you need ?

Fantastic entertainment have seen Said the Whale many times but the acoustics and sound mix at the Jubilee really brought out the very best in every song they performed. They are more than able to headline and look forward to seeing them return to Edmonton.

About Said the Whale

Said The Whale have earned their place in the Canadian music pantheon. They’ve won a JUNO Award, topped the alternative radio chart, and amassed a devoted base of fans who affectionately describe themselves as “SaidHeads” — all the while maintaining their resolute independent spirit. Now, more than a decade into their career, the Vancouver group are opening their most ambitious chapter yet.

Cascadia represents a back-to-basics approach after the synth-fuelled experimentation of 2017’s As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide. That previous record was made amidst intense personal turmoil, as band members Tyler Bancroft (vocals/guitar), Ben Worcester (vocals/guitar) and Jaycelyn Brown (keyboards) upended their sound while weathering personal tragedies and the departure of their long-term rhythm section.

This time around, with their personal lives back in order, the timing was right to return to the core of their signature style. “We sat down with guitars again and wrote songs in the way that feels the most natural to us,” Tyler says. “We’re just following the whims of the three of us, and it’s a much more distilled version of what the band is.”

Early recording took place in an assortment of studios across Vancouver and Toronto, including Tyler’s own Ol' Dirty Bikeshed — quite literally the shed in the driveway behind his apartment. Three more songs were tracked with Hot Hot Heat’s Steve Bays. From there, the group fleshed out the songs with producers Alexandre Bonenfant and Jay Merrow, culminating in a solar-powered session at Ben’s family cabin on Gambier Island.

“We were recording in the living room of the cabin,” remembers Ben. “At one point you can hear me drop a plate because I was washing dishes and I didn’t know they had hit record. The whole experience was just totally relaxed and comfortable. We were at home.”

The results capture the rugged warmth of Said The Whale’s West Coast sound. There are full-throated singalongs (“Wake Up,” “Love Don’t Ask”), meditative ballads drenched in moody ambience (“Gambier Island Green,” “Old Soul, Young Heart”), and pop-rock bangers that are guaranteed to become instant favourites (“UnAmerican,” “Record Shop”). Along the way, the listener can hear background chatter and snippets of studio experimentation, making for an album that’s as spontaneous as it is meticulously beautiful.

It’s an ambitious, multifaceted sound that’s reflected in Casadia’s title. “Cascadia is the name of a proposed country made up of British Columbia and the western United States,” notes Tyler. “That’s the physical manifestation of our music.” With rich harmonies drawn from California pop, crunchy guitars rooted in the lineage of Pacific Northwest rock, and naturalistic lyrics inspired by the water and mountains, Cascadia is the embodiment of everything Said the Whale does best.

Cascadia is Said The Whale’s first album for Arts & Crafts and is due out Feb 8, 2019.
