The resurgence of indie folk music is apparent in Of Monsters and Men, Mumford & Sons among many others.

The beauty and perhaps the most inspiring quality about Wake Owl is its impeccable and delicate sound. Every single instrument used, brings forward the warmth and charisma of each guitar pluck, percussion and of course, the longing vocals of singer/songwriter Colyn Cameron. Unique melodies wonderfully wrapped around the familiarity of heart-felt themes about love gained and love lost.

Singer/songwriter Colyn Cameron of Wake Owl has been immersed in the world of music for the past ten years. Now based in Vancouver, BC and Portland, OR, Colyn was originally born and raised in southern California. “In the beginning I was mostly into rhyme stuff/hip hop,” Colyn notes, “I wrote rap basically. I used to go around the school ground rapping my verses to whoever would listen. Then about seven years ago I picked up a guitar and taught myself basic stuff and immediately began writing songs.”

The show will be inside the Pabst Pub.
