Phoenix Sessions - Augustaeolianhall.ca/phoenix
The Aeolian Phoenix Sessions take centre stage… in the comfort of your own home. Every month we premier at least four productions recorded at Aeolian’s studios or in the artist’s home.
The Aeolian Phoenix Sessions are intended to provide patrons with a cross-section of the music going experience. From classical to jazz, rock to country, and bluegrass to folk, the Sessions aim to bring music back into your home and heart.
Interested in one show only? Trust us: you’ll like what you see. Try the Phoenix Sessions all month and experience a few productions that you might never have seen in person.
Our goal was to reignite live music and get artists on stage, technicians behind the soundboard and our patrons on their feet listening to extraordinary talent in extraordinary times.
Terms and Conditions
Membership to the Phoenix Sessions is $20 per month (automatically recurring) and you select the productions you wish to enjoy.
Though membership renews automatically, patrons must validate their membership number every month to receive an access code for each new set of productions by email. This process is not automatic. Patrons will receive their first access code immediately upon registration. An access code is only good for one calendar month. Validation instructions are contained in the Membership tab on this page, in our weekly newsletter and in the monthly rollover announcement sent by the Aeolian Box Office.
We do not have a multi-viewer pass. If you plan to safely watch with friends or family, please consider donating to further offset the costs associated with these productions.
Tickets to individual productions are not available.
If you do not intend to subscribe for longer than one month, refunds will not be provided to patrons who forget to cancel their membership or who have not read the terms and conditions: membership renewal is automatic every 30 days. This information is noted on every ticketing page, on event pages and marketing, on event posters and in our weekly newsletter. It is important to read information carefully before joining so as to not misunderstand how membership works.
Upon registration and after monthly validation, you will receive a confirmation email including a link that you will use each time you wish to view a performance. Save that link… or follow instructions at www.aeolianhall.ca/phoenix to receive it again.
Shows will be available on the date and time specified on Aeolian’s website.
PRODUCTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR A MAXIMUM OF TWO WEEKS AFTER PREMIER. IF YOU ARE PURCHASING MORE THAN 30 DAYS BEFORE THE MONTH BEGINS, YOU WILL BE BILLED EVERY 30 DAYS AS A RECURRING MEMBER. IF YOU ARE SPECIFICALLY INTERESTED IN AN INDIVIDUAL MONTH, PLEASE PURCHASE YOUR PASS ON FIRST OF THE MONTH.
Payment is final. No refunds will be offered.
Born in small town Port Elgin, Ontario, Brett picked up the guitar for the first time at the age of 23, setting course a musical voyage that would forge the future of this unsuspecting Canadian country-rock super talent.
Brett, a modern day renaissance man, has traversed the globe as a professional musician, model, actor, artist, and firefighter. Audiences and fans across North America have enjoyed his unique acoustic style, unmistakable raspy drawl and dynamic presence, having shared stages with such revered artist’s as Everclear, I Mother Earth, David Wilcox, Dallas Smith and Deric Ruttan to name a few. Brett has written and recorded with members of Megadeath, Fuel, Alice Cooper and Kings X, has had original music chart on international mainstream radio, and has had success with original music licensing to international television and film (most notably ABC’s daytime hit soap opera “One Life To Live”
But life is full of peaks and valleys, and Brett fell upon some dark and difficult times, losing his footing for those worlds in which he previously both thrived in and loved. Crippled with addiction, depression, and anxiety, Brett stumbled aimlessly through life for many years, leaving dormant his passion and purpose for music, creation, and connection.
In 2018, digging deeply, Brett began fully facing his demons and devices, committing to his self care, love and improvement. Steadily shedding his shackles; sober, sound and fully supported by family, friends, fans and followers; Brett has re-emerged triumphantly into his life, recalibrating his mind and heart in the direction they were meant to travel – one towards harmony, freedom, and very importantly, music.
Excitedly exploding back in to the Canadian and International music scenes, in the spring of 2019, Brett released his bold and powerful 3 song EP “Better Everyday.”; a vulnerable collection of tales of love, leaves, liquor and loss. Off of its heels, in 2020 Brett released the poignant and important song “The Questions Burn” – a co-written song denoting the tragic story of a O.P.P. Officer and friend who had found his brother who had tragically taken his own life.
