music

We have a range of musicians playing for us at Two Whales—many of which are touring the Eastern provinces. They all recording artists, playing their own music. Musicians love playing the coffee shop as we have quiet, attentive and supportive audiences for them in this intimate and acoustically excellent setting. We offer our usual bar service plus coffee, teas and soft drinks. We offer some nice nibbles during the break to accompany them!

If you are a musician interested in playing Two Whales in 2024 please contact us.


2024 music events

JUNE

Saturday 1st, 7.00pm Valmy

Valmy will be performing at Two Whales Coffee Shop as the third concert in her series of Newfoundland Spring Shows in support of her debut album, The In Between. 

Valmy is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Ontario who’s been following the ocean and making home on the East Coast. Exploring the complexities of relationship, loss, and healing, she uses her folk-influenced music to tell stories about loving and stumbling your way through the dark. Based in St. John’s, Newfoundland since 2019, Valmy creates and performs by weaving nature-inspired melodic swells and atmospheric harmonies with her contemplative writing.

In September 2023 Valmy independently released her debut full-length album, The In Between: a collection of songs written over the past several years that were given new life through her original arrangements and performances by musicians from the St. John’s arts community. This record was warmly received by listeners and thoughtfully reviewed by Fred’s Records; “There is a cohesiveness to this full album offering meditative musings on balancing one’s own mental state in harmony with nature…Deftly produced, engineered, and mixed, The In Between is one of 2023’s finest NL Releases”. Valmy was nominated for MusicNL’s Folk Artist and Rising Star of the Year in 2023, for a 2024 ECMA under African Canadian Artist of the Year, and looks forward to connecting with communities through performances across Newfoundland this spring and summer. Making her Two Whales debut, Valmy will share two sets of music with listeners to welcome in the month of June.

Valmy will have the 12” Vinyl of The In Between record (released May 2024) and softcover pocket-book Lyric Books available for purchase at the show. Sign-up for Valmy’s mailing list through her official website for information about upcoming shows and updates.
