Steeped in the solitude of the mountains and islands of the Pacific Northwest, raised in the boisterous and irreverent East Vancouver arts community, Jack Garton’s music is a dance party for the vulnerable at heart. His new video showcases his raucous live performance with his full backing band. Riffing off of classic icons while putting his own accordion spin on the rock genre, I Lit The Fire is a blast.
“We shot the video at the WISE Hall in East Vancouver because we’ve been playing there for so long, it feels like our band living room. It’s just where we feel most comfortable. Jasmine Liddell at the WISE has been supporting live music there for years and I don’t know where we’d be without her. We’re doing our release show right there on June 30th! Shooting the video was quick and dirty – Steven Drake slapped a few mics up, and we just had a blast. We played the song three times and you’re seeing/hearing the third one, totally alive and kicking. God, I love playing with those guys.” – Jack Garton
