Singer-songwriter at Realm in Parksville

Doyle said she has spent the past 15 years in various bands, but It Ain’t What It Seems is her first venture solely under her own name

This may be Eliza Doyle’s debut solo album, but she’s no stranger to the business.

Doyle, a Saskatchewan singer-songwriter, will be performing at Realm Food Co.

(180 Craig St., Parksville) on Oct. 30. Doors open at 6 p.m. and dinner is until 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20.

Doyle said she has spent the past 15 years in various bands, but It Ain’t What It Seems is her first venture solely under her own name.

“I just thought I’ve got enough material for an album,” Doyle said. “It’s kind of my debut album, but I’ve done multiple albums.”

Doyle has released nine full-length albums, won numerous awards and has toured North America and Europe. She has been a regional finalist in CBC’s Searchlight Canada competition and a past winner of Bell Media’s contest The Next Big Thing.

Doyle described her music as predominantly bluegrass at heart with some of the new genres.

The folk-singer-songwriter said to expect a lot of different styles and a variety of instruments including banjo, bass, guitar and electric bass at her upcoming performance at Realm.

Doyle said she hasn’t performed on the Island in years, but she’s excited to be back and sharing her music.

“When I tour, I like to meet the people and get a feel for the community and get to know everybody,” Doyle said.
