“Renowned painter unleashes musical talent alongside brilliant Theatre folk-rocker”
Truth and Dolphin
“…poetry funk folk in various gradations. Like Thom Yorke jamming with Leonard Cohen and Destroyer.”
Truth and Dolphin’s debut album and poetry book, Chronicles of Living Memory Part One, releases to radio in April 2022. The first 3 singles dropped during the pandemic in 2021, and saw small independent radio play across Canada. In support of the radio release, the band has released 3 new singles from the
album, featuring their stripped back sound and “poetry theatre folk” dynamics.
They are touring in support of the album as venues open up, with Jared Nyberg on poetry and vocals, and Steve Chmilar on guitar, backup vocals, djembe, harmonica and banjo. Sherri Anne of Sister Speak often joins with guitar and vocals when on tour in the Pacific Northwest.
Ideosyncratic, sometimes quirky original acoustic music by a former hard rock band frontman. Steve’s songwriting landed him Canadian radio hit “From The River” with his band The Villains and a songwriting award at Canadian Music Week. He currently lives in Sidney, BC where he delightfully paints every day to an ocean view and takes breaks with music jams.
