Jeff Pike's acoustic solo project Windborn will be at Ellison's Market and John Ward Fine Coffee

Windborn plays Ellison’s Unplugged Sessions

Jeff Pike brings his acoustic one-man groove band to Nelson's Ellison's Market and John Ward Fine Coffee

This Saturday at Ellison’s Market and John Ward’s Fine Coffee Windborn — Jeff Pike — takes the stage sharing his unique one-man, acoustic, alternative groove band.

A simply massive one man show involving guitar, kick drum, looping pedals, vocals and other hand percussion. Windborn Pike’s solo acoustic project.

Pike has been writing and performing his music under the name of Windborn since 2006 and under other band names since 2001.

In January 2010 he released the Radiate EP online and in April 2011 he released his full length album named Spitting Bullets online and in hard copy.

In December 2011 Jeff packed everything into storage and hit the road full time to focus entirely on his music.

He is consistently booked into every type of venue and festival, sharing the stage with every type of band from folk and world fusion to hard rock and metal.

Somehow the music of Windborn fits everywhere and seems to be appreciated by everyone. It’s a difficult thing to explain. You may just need to witness it at a Windborn gig.

With all of Pike’s musical projects spanning 12 years, he has always tried to make the biggest sound that he can using as few instruments as possible.

“Windborn won over our international crowd almost immediately and even had people stopping at our windows to listen. We want him to play here as much as possible before he becomes too big for our little venue,” said Tim at Ocean Island Cafe Lounge. Victoria, BC

Windborn will be doing a full electric show at John Ward Fine Coffee following the Unplugged Sessions.
