Zach Kleisinger, Jess Kallen & Maisyn

Doors Open: 6:30 pm$10
Based in Vancouver, Canada, Zach Kleisinger writes lyrically-driven songs in the contemporary, darkened-folk, singer-songwriter style. His words often feel like a bathroom mirror, while his compositions tend to conjure an emotion akin to the heartbreakers on Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks. The strength in Kleisinger’s songwriting is often described as a simple yet poetic intimacy, one that illustrates profound messages by magnifying the little things.
Since releasing his EP, I Hope It’s Calm, Then, in 2018, Kleisinger has established himself within the alt-folk music community, performing hundreds of concerts across Canada, the UK, and Europe. His live performances have gathered him a loyal audience, where the comfort of his warm baritone voice and magnetic songs are often juxtaposed, oddly and satisfyingly, by dry, unrehearsed humour.
Kleisinger’s latest record Their Symposium, was released in August 2021 via DevilDuck Records to widespread acclaim. Since its release, Their Symposium has charted on college radio across the US and Canada, received generous airplay on Canada’s nationally syndicated radio network CBC, and earned numerous publications in magazines such as Canadian Musician, Americana UK, Atwood, and American Pancake. In the deep sea of indie-folk songwriters, Zach Kleisinger is a true storyteller and entertainer, a narrator of raw emotions and real tales; ones that will draw you into an intimate, familiar world.
Blending poignant lyricism with raucous-folk and folkish-rock sensibilities, Jess Kallen delivers music with unique tenderness and power. Citing influences from Gillian Welch to Blake Mills to Connie Converse, Jess’s genre-rich background, strong command as a guitarist, and sensitive lyrics and melodies set them apart in the LA music scene.
If you spend some time with Maisyn’s music you’ll know more about her heart and yours, too. The Los Angeles-based indie pop-rocker is an emotional force, weaving her way “into the alternative mainstream, particularly the new generation of female rock stars [such as] Julia Jacklin, Camp Cope and Phoebe Bridgers [Floated Magazine].”
Her debut “Cool Grl,” released in January 2021, reflects on the performance of likability. As Earmilk put it, Maisyn’s “Cool Grl” “rejects the concept of conditional love while showing us the inherent value of vulnerability.” The song was also praised by 1883 Magazine and Bust and was featured on Spotify’s Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds: Pop playlists.
