Dirty Mountain to play at Eats and Beats

Hailing from Victoria, the Dirty Mountain sound is heavily infused with harmony-driven melodies and timeless storytelling. Dirty Mountain is a folkrock band with underlying blends of roots and blues to support the sassy and often gritty messages portrayed in the lyrics. A musical temptress, charismatic songstress, and lyrical adulteress, Elli Hart is the relentless force behind Dirty Mountain.

Their unique sound shows their boundless love and respect for soul, R&B, and funk music. Well-crafted melodies, soaring lyricism, and a dynamic rhythm section make the New Souls a must-see live act. Their debut EP, ‘Household Daydreaming’ is available on Bandcamp.

Kuba is one of those rare artists whose voice touches you deep in your soul. This will be a brilliant setting to dance to his award-winning songs! His live performances with his band, Velvet, are legendary on the coast. His debut solo album ‘How Much Time’ could be likened to a cross between David Gray, Ben Harper and Al Green. ‘ADHD’, his follow-up album, earned Kuba two Top 20 radio hits in Canada with ‘My Love and Electrolove’.
