Quote The Raven
219 Main St
Quote the Raven, consisting of Jordan Coaker and Kirsten Rodden-Clarke have been performing together for over a decade. The pair got their start in the small bars and pubs around St. John’s and in the past few years have rapidly grown to a household name around Canada and are steadily growing their clout on an international level. The dynamic duo have a harmonious blend that’s incomparable; it’s like the blending of two voices into one, while their Americana meets east coast songwriting and stage dynamic are irresistibly charming. Their sophomore album titled Can’t Hold the Light, an album that delves into the lives of working musicians won the 2022 ECMA for Contemporary Roots album of the year and has been nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards. It’s clear to see that Quote the Raven are on an upward trajectory with no slowing down in sight.
Kristen Martell’s hazy folk pop songs embrace life’s challenges and quiet moments of beauty. With gentle arrangements, haunting harmonies and insightful messages her songs are the perfect soundtrack to ease your melancholy. With an ECMA nomination and three Music Nova Scotia award nominations since her return to music in 2020, she is making a name for herself in the East Coast music scene and beyond. Her latest album ‘Every Season‘ is her most confident, self-assured and emotionally compelling work to date.
