"Learning to walk and talk so one day i'll be able to cruise around town, use big words, avoid the ground and take big steps without falling down."
Many Ottawa musicians feel right at home when it comes to the DIY approach to making music. Artists can get their music from pen and paper to our ear drums quicker and easier than ever with basic equipment. Not having to worry about surrendering a down payment on a house to record an album in-studio (in some cities this is the case) allows for a little more freedom for independent artists to create, whereas they might not have been able to otherwise.
Jakub Raček, writing music under the pseudonym Pocket Writer, is one such artist. He recently released his debut album Dented Little Scars at the tail end of 2014 and is relatively new in the Ottawa scene. Raček blends folk sensibilities and stories in his lyrics with simple, subtly brilliant instrumental arrangements throughout the album.
Bedroom pop songs recorded in various living rooms across Montreal, Paris, & Berlin. Zef now resides in Barcelona. All songs written by Jozef Raček.
