Album Notes
Raw, rough, uncomfortably honest, fast and violent, then suddenly smooth and soaring. SAVK wears his heart on his sleeve, then throws it, still beating, at the audience. This Canadian act uses deep rooted western flavours and combines it with international inspirations to perfectly depict his home sound. SAVK’s debut self titled release is a study in vulnerable live folk rock. Now joined by an amazing team of musicians including Paul van Kampen (The Magnetic North, Beija Flor), Brett Gunther (Beija Flor, Buzzing Bees), Stefan Smith (Crescent Heights, Coldwater) and Matt Chaplin (Prairie of Prax, Joule). SAVK has just completed a louder more produced record called "Love Letters and Hate Mail"

Confused? It’s best to just give SAVK listen.
"... A showcase of formidable musical talent... Will make an indelible mark on the nation's music scene."
-Spencer Brown BEATROUTE

"... His guitar weaves effortlessly around the beautifully constructed vocal melodies... van Kampen remains crisp and clear in the foreground. It’s a position he’d better get used to."
-Peter Hemminger, FFWD

"...van Kampen's distinct, raspy yet-soothing voice on the record strikes the same chord in my heart as Beija Flor did. However, SAVK Captures a much more intimate side of van Kampen, while still possessing the same precisely mastered songwriting."

"Armed with a small arsenal of acoustic instruments on stage as cover, SAVK offers a chance to explore his musical vision, sharing it with an audience that understands raw, honest emotion. Firmly rooted in folk, his simple melodies emphasize his old soul."

Savk immediately pulls you in with the smoothness of his old-rock‘n’roll-infused style and the genius pace of his guitar strumming fingers. The talents of this man are generous, particularly when seen in a live setting, and his musical creations are an essential contribution to Calgary’s indie-folk-rock scene.
