Ben Sures / Hazel Grey
APRIL 26, 2024
Ben Sures is a guitar player who tells great stories in song, and a natural performer with an instinct for humour and storytelling. He writes songs about everything from imaginary rayguns to sandwiches prepared for him by his father when he was a child. Sures is immersed in the history of roots music, the old traditions informing this contemporary songwriter’s music. His most recent album ‘The Story That Lived Here’ was number one for weeks on CKUA and was in the top ten of the Canadian college charts.
Peter and Josanna Justine bonded over a love for good literature, strong coffee, a thirst for truth, and an insatiable desire to create and perform music. They began writing, performing and recording together, before relocating back to Calgary a few years ago. Their blended vocals, plus Pete’s guitar style and Josanna’s varied instrumentation, give Hazel Grey a strong palette with which to share their love of music and stories of life.
