Those in attendance will have the chance to rub shoulders with international music industry professionals from the UK and Germany.
If you combine elements of sugary indie-rock with moody soundscapes and back it all up with the intensity of a psychedelic wall of sound, you will wind up with something along the lines of 36?. Taking inspiration from all outlets of music, 36? has a sound that is easy to relate to while maintaining an eclectic modesty that is hard to define.
Sidney York: (Calgary)
Begun as a long-distance musical collaboration between opera singer Brandi Sidoryk and bassoonist Krista Wodelet, Sidney York is one of the sharpest, sweetest, most surprising musical duos around.
Known for their high-energy live shows featuring instruments seldom seen beyond the orchestra pit, Sidney York is captivating audiences with an unconventional and irresistible blend of catchy lyrics, masterful arrangements, and soaring vocal harmonies.
Two Bears North: (Edmonton)
Sophie Heppell and Melissa Walker spent the last six years perfecting the formula that became the Edmonton based band Two Bears North. Heppell's melodic sense, Walker's incomparable groove and the addition of Nich Davies on drums have made the band unstoppable.
“Sophie’s vocals and Melissa’s bass grooves blend perfectly into a roiling sandstorm of bliss” -New Music Michael Blog
Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk: (Brooks)
Since their humble start in 2010 with “Stories From Home,” a collection of songs recorded over the previous four years, Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk have taken the highways by storm with over 500 tour dates throughout North America. Their unique brand of alternative pop music and an impressive live show have garnered the attention of listeners and critics alike.
Fronted by songstress Lauren Mann, the band was formed as somewhat of a collective with friends and musicians that Lauren collaborated with in her early days of playing around Calgary. Since those days, Lauren and her band of Fairly Odd Folk have developed a sound and show unlike anything else.
The Royal Foundry: (Sherwood Park)
The Royal Foundry was founded through the marriage and love of Jared Salte and Bethany Schumacher.
What started as just a songwriting project quickly catapulted into the newly-weds performing their song “Run Back” on live television at the GMA Awards in Toronto and going on to be nominated for Folk Song of the Year. Months after they released their debut album “Wherever We Go” which quickly rose the iTunes charts to #4 in the Singer/Songwriter category.< Previous Post Next Post >
