About Getting There

A short film by Brendan Prost

Tanner, a passionate and single-minded mandolin player in a multi-instrumental folk band, struggles to drag his bandmates towards productivity and relevance at the risk of his own personal estrangement. But, after a disconcerting conversation with a famed singer-songwriter, Tanner takes a moment to pause and appreciate what he has already.

Getting There is a vibrant, musical consideration of an artist's struggle to collaborate and keep things in perspective.

About Jess Knights · Calgary, AB

Captivating performerJess Knights is Calgary’s preeminent soul-roots sweetheart. Straddling the renegade worlds of alt-country, blues and soul, singer-songwriter Knights’ style is reflective of her unassuming past; a classically-trained opera singer who cut her teeth in the boozy, rough-hewn dives of her native Calgary. Her debut 2018 EP, Won’t Wait, captured the grit of the rooms that helped her find her voice and the colourful denizens within them. Revivalist soul and classic roots tones ripened the sound on her 2020 debut full-length album, Best Kind of Light. With assistance from award-winning producer Joshua Van Tassel and the crème de la crème of Canadian songsmiths and sidemen, including Donovan Woods and Joey Landreth, it showcases Knights’ luminous voice and burgeoning song balladeer skills.
