Subsequently, John Wetton asked him to join Asia for two European tours after which he joined Paul Rodgers and Kenny Jones in a short-lived band called The Law.

Nicole Lefebvre is a pianist/composer from Halifax, Nova Scotia, and a newcomer to the Ottawa music scene. A self-taught pianist with 20 years of experience, her style is a mélange of various influences. Her debut solo piano album, “White Water”, was released in March 2014 and ranges from dreamy and ambient soundscapes to intense and aggressive breakdowns. Her music has been described by listeners as “hauntingly beautiful”, “enchanting”, and “emotionally captivating”. Nicole also plays piano and synthesizer in local experimental psych-rock band Destroy Clocks, who released their self-titled debut EP in February 2014.

Astrid Young opens, accompanied by the Grand Dame of all things strings, Saskia Tomkins. Astrid is a singer-songwriter with influences that range from classical to heavy rock, with a healthy dose of blues and country in between. Her discography dates back to 1984 and boasts over forty releases, from bands that she has played in, to artists for whom she has sang backup for or played with as a side-musician. Her solo acoustic shows have been compared to «Alice In Chains Unplugged», and Music Connection Magazine once said she was «More closely related to Angus». She has played stages large and small all over the world, from the Whiskey-A-Go-Go in Hollywood to Paradiso in Amsterdam. Astrid cites her primary influences as David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush, and Black Sabbath, she plays a 12-string like it's a weapon and she isn't afraid to change strings on the day of a show.

FUN FACTS: Though John and Astrid share a surname, they are not related. They met almost 30 years ago at the NAMM show in Los Angeles and bonded over each other's music while sitting in John's rental car, listening to their respective CASSETTE TAPES. This little Canadian mini-tour is the first time that they have shared a stage or even been in the same room together since that day.
