The Nico Tobias Band are a bunch of classic rock lovin’, outlaw country playin’ fools from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Raised in Canmore, Nico Tobias has his own brand of Alberta country/rock that is inspired by the history and geography of the province as well as the music that has come out out of it. The band’s song “Anthracite” – a grimy wink at Johnny Cash and Alberta’s bootlegging history – won the 2018 Canadian Songwriting Competition for Canadiana. Exclaim! Magazine included The Nico Tobias Band in their Class of 2020, a showcase on emerging bands across Canada, and their most recent release “Saskatchewan” has been played on the radio since March 31st 2022.
