Kee Avil is a solo song project based in Montreal, QC. It combines guitar, voice and electronics into song forms that stagger between structure and improvisation. Kee Avil evolved from playing the guitar with broken cymbals and drumsticks into creating strange beats glued together by samples of screws dropped into crystal bowls. A debut EP was released on Black Bough Records in 2018.

Pianist and composer Parker Shper hails from the creative music scene of Montreal where he collaborates with such bands as The Barr Brothers, Leif Vollebekk, Thus Owls. His spontaneous approach creates surprises at every performance. Psychedelic soundscapes, minimalist piano drones, growling synthesizers, and percussive samples form patchworks of compelling melodies and rhythms. His debut solo album is due out in 2019.
