“He has the depth and maturity to match his unending virtuosity on the guitar” – John Jorgenson
“Welcome to the visionary musical world of Quinn Bachand. I was flabbergasted when I put on this recording for the first time, and you will be too, as you take a journey into the wild imagination of Quinn – a musical world that includes strands of various epochs of pop music, film music, gypsy jazz, western swing, instrumental virtuosity on guitar and violin, storytelling, songs, amazing arrangements, and a dance band sensibility that almost sounds like it came from another planet! So sit back, enjoy and let this amazing music wash over you.” – Matt Glaser
Brishen, Romany for ‘bringer of the storm’, is what 23 year old Quinn Bachand, one of Canada’s most outstanding award winning young musicians, and his band serve up with their original western and euro-gypsy swing homage. With a tight grasp on the music that embraces the swing tradition, Quinn Bachand’s Brishen takes audiences on an inventive quest which, through its technical virtuosity, brings together a spellbinding range of musical history to reinvent the categories of swing jazz, pop and country, celebrating the music of the ‘30s, up to and including the ‘60s. Quinn Bachand’s Brishen creates a space where virtuosity meets vibe, leaving you with a sense of jubilance and nostalgia. The band has been in high demand since its 2013, with multiple tours across Canada, the United States and Europe, performing at major folk, jazz and gypsy jazz festivals. They’ve been nominated for an unprecedented five Canadian Folk Music Awards, two Western Canadian Music Awards and in 2018 won an Independent Music Award in the Jazz category for their sophomore album, Blue Verdun. Not to mention that in December 2018 Quinn completed his Bachelor of Music degree at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston on a full-ride Presidential Scholarship!
Brishen’s forward trajectory continues with the release of their third and much anticipated album, “Tunes in a Hotel”. The album was pre-released in Europe while the band was on tour in Belgium earlier this year, the official Canadian release takes place in Victoria on June 21, 2019. This is one concert no gypsy jazz and swing music fan should miss!
