ECLECTIC – West coast-based acclaimed singer Sam Weber brings his artistic explorations to Red Deer Nov. 6th with a show at Bo’s.

Sam Weber brings artistic excellence to City stage

Alternative/folk/rock artist performs at Red Deer's Bo's this weekend

Still riding high from the response to his latest disc Valentina Nevada, Victoria-based alt/folk/rock artist Sam Weber heads to Bo’s on Nov. 6th.

Weber recently released a new music video for his track Charlotte from the project, which was released this past spring.

The video for the cut, about about a girl in a band on the road too long, features Victoria-based all-girl band Fox Glove, who were recently on the road with Weber and his band just long enough to make a video about, “Said girl in a band, while portraying the writer/performers of said song.”

Weber isn’t wary of kicking back and having fun with videos – the one for another single from Valentina Nevada featured Hal and Joanne – better known as that upbeat, ubiquitous couple in those Body Break ‘Get fit and have fun’ spots that have been on TV for years. They showed off some pretty impressive acting chops in the video for Anybodys’.

As for the ongoing journey of introducing Valentina Nevada to the masses, Weber used the vintage Laurel Canyon sounds of Jackson Browne, the Eagles, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell as his foundation.

It’s been a shift that some fans have taken a bit of time to adjust to, but they’ve come around to the compelling, insightful results – no question. But it’s a style that’s also attracting new folks as well.

“I think that now that people have sat with it more – people have genuinely come up to me saying, ‘I’ve been listening more to it, and I get it now,” he explains during a recent chat.

“So it’s had a longer incubating period for people which is good. A lot of records that I really like – that’s typically been the case. I’ve had to sit with them for awhile, and then they really sink in,” he added. “I feel like this music and the aesthetic of the recording, the production style and the writing style – really everything about how it was recorded — appeals to an entirely different listener, too.”

He and his band indeed guide the listener on the journey that they have been on for the past two years. Also, Weber describes the approach to the album as more minimalistic in terms of how it was put together.
