I knew Cyrus when he was just a wee lad. One thing I could always say about him was that he did his own thing, and he did it quite well and was happy to do it.
Since then, Cyrus has gone on to do a lot of things in the world of music. Most recently, he’s been the bassist for Halifax rock band Dali Van Gogh, though most people around CB would probably know him from when he played bass for Keith Doom and the Wrecking Crew.
And now there’s something else to know him for! Cyrus is releasing his new solo single Pulp this Thursday, November 16 at Governor’s Pub.
The sound is a bit of a departure for those who have become familiar with Cyrus’ sound over the past few years. Pulp is described as “a lyrical nu-jazz piece” which sounds very interesting, and not just because of that nifty way of spelling “new.” Cyrus himself explains this shift in sound:
“It has been a wonderful couple of years working with the various artists that I have, and my work with Dali is ongoing. However, you can only spend so long with ideas simmering in your head before you have to bring them out and share them with the world”
Along with Cyrus to celebrate the release of Pulp is Colette Deveaux and Mike LeLievre, so it’s going to be a good night of solo performances no matter what your musical tastes.
Doors open at 10:00 with a $7 cover. Pulp will be available on all the usual digital formats.
