Drawing influence from pop, soul, and electronic music, the Edmonton-based duo X62 (ten-sixty-two) seamlessly blends together elements of each genre to create musically versatile and lyrically compelling songs. Consisting of Joel Toews and Sauvé (so-vay), X62 is influenced by Sam Smith, Emilié Sande, Brasstracks and NEEDTOBREATHE. Their new gospel tinged optimistic sound is emphasized by backup vocals, dynamic horn lines and emotional complexity. Their lyrics toe the line between deeply personal and profoundly universal, inclining audiences to engage with both the duo’s live and recorded performances.
X62’s newest single, “Nobody”, was released on April 24, 2020. In contrast to their previous singles, “Nobody” highlights the influence gospel music has on the group.
Additional production for the single was provided by Robbie Townsend (Talltale, Laur Elle) and the track was mixed by Brad Smith (JUNO-nominated Nuela Charles, iamhill).
