Four Chords and the Truth, the Dakota Confessions, is a series of songwriter showcases held quarterly in Toronto at the Dakota Tavern, featuring a blend of top-notch songwriters and songs in an intimate environment. Each show is hosted by award-winning songwriter Andrea England and will features several nationally and/or internationally acclaimed songwriters (and maybe a surprise guest or two). The songs are performed “in the round,” a style made famous by Nashville’s Bluebird Café, in which all four songwriters share the stage at once, each introducing and performing one song acoustically per round for a series of 3 rounds.
The show is presented by Jack Daniel's and supports the Unison Benevolent Fund.
Past songwriters include: Justin Rutledge, Jully Black, Liz Rodrigues (The New Royales), Kim Stockwood, Rose Cousins, Jason McCoy, Oh Suzanna, Joey Landreth, Donovan Woods, Colin MacDonald (The Trews), Steve Poltz, Matthew Burnett, Damhnait Doyle, Nefe, David Leask, Sarah MacDougall, Madeline Merlo, Suzie Vinnick, Melissa Bel, Paul Reddick, Liam Titcomb, Hill Kourkoutis, Derek Downham, Kelly Prescott, Tom Wilson, W. Darling, Rob Wells, Jessica Mitchell, Troy Kokol, Mark Masri, Luke McMaster and impromptu/surprise guests Serena Ryder, the Heartbroken, Fred Penner, Andy Kim and Dan Hill.
