Fearing was born in 1963 in Vancouver, and grew up in Dublin, Ireland where his schoolmates included future members of U2. In 1981, he moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota and immersed himself in the music scene, learning the fundamentals of song writing and performing.

By 1984 he was back in Vancouver, determined to become a professional musician. In the years since, he’s been named as one of the finest songwriters in Canada and has built an international audience for his music.

In 1996, Fearing formed Blackie and the Rodeo Kings with Colin Linden and Tom Wilson, to record a tribute album of songs by Willie P. Bennett. Nine albums and one JUNO Award later, the band has become one of the most respected names in North American roots-rock-Americana music.

Fearing has released ten albums as a solo artist, featuring musical guests including: Bruce Cockburn, Margo Timmons, Richard Thompson, Shawn Colvin, and Sarah McLachlan. When not working behind the microphone, Fearing spends time producing records including Suzie Vinnick’s JUNO Award-nominated album Happy Here.

Through a life of many relocations and countless months on the road performing, Fearing has become a gifted storyteller and true musical nomad with the ability to enthrall audiences of all sizes and attitudes. “Getting on stage is the fun part, especially when the adrenaline kicks in,” he says, with a broad smile. “People want to escape and be taken on a journey. I build my shows so they do just that.”

With multiple accolades – a Juno Award, SOCAN Award, multiple East Coast Music Awards, and Music Newfoundland and Labrador Awards, The Ennis Sisters, comprised of Maureen, Teresa and Karen Ennis, are world renowned, celebrated songbirds. With their striking sibling harmonies, and voices as powerful as the Atlantic, it’s in their bones to sing.

This summer they will be touring songs from their 2018 release Keeping Time.

A concept album, produced by internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter/musician/author/actor, Alan Doyle, about our most precious gift of time and what we’ve decided to do with it. It’s about the passing of time, the loss of traditions, the things we do to hold to what matters most and what we’ve done to preserve it. At the end of our lives, when the edges of our memories are fraying and we are falling in and out of time, hopefully, looking back, we’ll feel we lived our lives well, with little regret, and even the time wasted along the way was worth it for the lessons learned.
