featuring local indie favourite windmills
Windmills is the moniker of moody indie swoon pop artist, Cory Myraas.
A clever songwriter with strong lyrical command, the words in a Windmills song are always accompanied by a soundscape that tells you how to feel. A genuine one-man show, this is a musician in charge of his craft. Windmills has released two full-length records — Keep Moving and 2015’s Measures — and two EPs, most recently 2017’s Death Of A Ladies’ Man. Windmills has also completed multiple Canadian tours, secured performance spots at festivals like Rifflandia, Canadian Music Week, and Shambhala, and reached the Top 12 of the prestigious 2015 PEAK Performance Project. All the while, his popularity grows, breaking 1,000,000 plays on Spotify in one short year.
Warming up the stage will be: UBCO talent Post-Modern Connection, a Kelowna-based band who’s sound is best described as a blend of indie-soul, tinged with jazz and lightly dabbed in psychedelic rock; and Nuge Bird, an Indigenous beatboxer (also known as Mustard Man Kelowna) who will have you bumping, chanting and feeling inspired.
New this year! Have a chat with UBC alumni over coffee and learn about the Okanagan Connector Program, helping link job seekers to employers. In partnership with the Central Okanagan Economic Development Corporation.
