This week's featured live act is Burnaby folk singer-songwriter Luca Fogale. Luca takes a confessional approach to songwriting, spinning stories from his own rumination on life and identity. Between rapturous applause that punctuate the songs you’ll hear in this week’s set, you could almost hear a pin drop in the Alix Goolden Hall as Luca plays – with just his guitar and his voice.
Since beginning his journey into the business, Luca has shared stages with the likes of Frazey Ford, Jay Malinowski, and Dan Mangan. This past summer, he flew to Eau Clair, Wisconsin to begin work on his debut album. The Burnaby native found himself at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios. S. Carey and and Bon Iver recording engineer Brian Joseph were behind the board for those recordings. It was an experience Luca described as “life-changing”.
