  • Robyn Hitchcock is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist. While primarily a vocalist and guitarist, he also plays harmonica, piano and bass guitar. Hitchcock's musical and lyrical styles have been influenced by his appreciation of Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Syd Barrett. Hitchcock's lyrics are an essential component of his work and tend to include surrealism, comedic songs, characterisations of English eccentrics and melancholy depictions of everyday life. His themes include the eternal contingencies of existence — namely, death, sex and eating. Recognizing this theme, he released an EP in 2007 called Sex, Food, Death and Tarantulas.

  • For the seventh year in a row, the Drake Hotel is an official off-site for the Toronto International Film Festival's Future Projections, a city-wide programme dedicated to taking the moving image from the cinema to the gallery — and beyond.

    The Drake's Future Projections programme will be dedicated to screening across all Drake properties the work of Shaun Gladwell. The Australian-born, London-based video artist portrays cultural figures like the skateboarder and freestyle BMX rider in self-described performative landscapes to hypnotic effect.

    Gladwell's most recent work, BMX Channel (2013), will be screening nightly in the display window of the Drake General Store as well as the Sky Yard. Set within a picturesque British seaside, Welsh bicyclist Matti Hemmings performs a technical style of BMX riding known as “flatland” — a stylized break-dance-like movement on flat surface. Shot in Gladwell’s signature style, Hemmings’ balletic movements and the ethereal haze of the English Channel are surprisingly hypnotic and poetic.
