Andy Shauf: Sonic blood will spill on the Block Heater stage

CALGARY — With a silken hesitancy, or perhaps deliberation akin to Sufjan Stevens or Elliott Smith, Andy Shauf paints dark portraits with music that somehow shine despite the black-grey tones. His captivating vignettes of anti-heroes, and stirring lyrical journeys that could poetically span generations pull listeners in through empathy, curiosity, and sometimes even horror. While often containing beautifully layered though minimal instrumentation, the real draw with Andy Shauf’s music is the starkly honest character profiles he creates. These brief episodes have the potential to tear the listener’s heart to shreds as soon as it can soothe and put them back together. Slipping seamlessly between the realities he creates, Shauf evokes all things macabre and morose, while his honeyed voice drifts delicately on the surface. Now supporting The Bearer of Bad News (2015), Shauf will warm and redden the rooms of Block Heater, even if it’s with the spilling of sonic blood.

Catch Andy Shauf at Lantern Church on February 13 during Block Heater.
