See them live on stage Saturday, August 11th, 2018 @ McLean Mill for this years’ Shaker!
Hometown – Nanaimo, British Columbia
Genre – Indie Folk-Rock
Sanctuary, the five song debut of Vancouver Island Folk-Rockers Maverick Cinema, is an elegant harmony of loss, and acceptance. Written in a time of personal crossroads, Sanctuary takes you on a journey of sorrow, burden, growth, resolution, and ultimately that time always goes on, wether you want it to stop, or move faster. With emotional lyrics blended famously with foot stomping drum beats, and melodic guitars Sanctuary will grasp hold of you, and leave you wanting more. Giving the picture of vast British Columbian forests, and the fierce waves of the West Coast Maverick Cinema’s first studio effort is truly a reflection of the place they call home.
Within the crashing waves of the West coast, and the breeze that tosses through the pines is where Maverick Cinema finds their bliss. It is a fine line between the whispering summer wind, and the roaring winter rain that voice the aspects of their sound. Influenced heavily by bands like Bon Iver, City and Colour, Death Cab For Cutie, and The Head and The Heart, they also share many similarities between Victorias Morning Show, and Towers and Trees. Maverick Cinema has shared the stage with notable music acts such as PEAK PERFORMANCE PROJECT TOP 12 acts Mike Edel, and Towers and Trees. They have also worked one on one with Mike Edel, and Juno Award winning Producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, New Pornogrophers) to create their debut EP
