For a new album that The Sheepdogs didn’t initially set out to make, Changing Colours is a stunning achievement.
Proud purveyors of guitar-driven modern-day retro rock, the triple Juno Award-winning Saskatoon-based quintet has expanded its sound on Changing Colours to encompass more styles and hues to enhance the Sheepdogs’ trademark beef-and-boogie twin-axe riffs, hooks, shuffles and long-haired aesthetic.Continue reading “The Sheepdogs”
Soaked in electric crescendos and folk tinged sing-along anthems, Shred Kelly is known for their high energy live show that ignites dance floors with their alternative folk sound.

Shred Kelly has seamlessly fused traditional instrumentation with modern rock, presenting a sound that is both unique and compelling.Continue reading “Shred Kelly”
There once was an era when records were made in castles, abandoned airplane hangars, barns, or on a yacht off the coast of the Bahamas, its passengers as high as paper kites. This is not that record! It is an album that came together from the desire for companionship, the endless pursuit of tone, the strength and glue of family, and above all, the love and admiration for each other’s skills. Whether it was operating a tape machine with Jedi precision, creating meals that fuelled us, or belting out glass shattering ohs and ahs, it was the elbow grease of many individuals that brought this project to life. – The Harpoonist & The Axe MurdererContinue reading “The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer”
After 3 years of live shows, and 2 years of writing, the debut EP from Canadian three piece, Leather Apron Revival has arrived. The airtight rhythm department of Jeff Rees (drums/ percussion) and Grady Pasiechnyk (bass) creates the perfect canvas for Lennan Delaney’s guitar, fiddle and powerful baritone vocals. His Cape Breton roots are evident. Recorded live off the floor over a whirlwind 48 hours at the Rebeltone Ranch under the guidance of Engineer/ Producer Micheal Ayotte and acclaimed recording artist Leeroy Stagger, the debut EP beautifully walks the line between delicate and aggressive.
