The Balconies have finally released their much anticipated album, Fast Motions today (unless you were part of their PledgeMusic Campaign) and they have set themselves up to be one of the most watched Canadian band this year. Here's our review of Fast Motions.
With a voice that’s been likened to a thunderstorm, Megan Nash rolls into Regina’s Creative City Centre on February 1st before taking her prairie imagery and gravel road vocals on tour through the Maritimes.
The Mortlach-raised Nash brings with her a strong country background mixed with influences as varied as Neko Case and Stevie Nicks. Nash has opened for the likes of Serena Ryder, Amelia Curran, The Heartbroken and Del Barber and has toured the majority of Canada including the NorthwestTerritories.
Joining Nash on the Saskatchewan leg of her tour is Fern, an up-and-coming artist in Saskatoon’s indie-folk scene. Fern has been steadily building a name for herself with understated, lush arrangements interwoven with thoughtful lyrics. Both Nash and Fern are preparing to release new material in the coming year.
Megan Nash and Fern hit the Creative City Centre’s Hague Gallery stage on Saturday, February 1 with doors at 7:30 and the show starting at 8:00. Tickets are available at the door for $10 each. For more information, please visit www.creativecitycentre.ca.
While other restaurants in Regina may be more famous for ribs, Jack Keaton's BBQ and Grill might just have the best ribs in town. Along with other barbecue favourites such as brisket and pulled pork, Jack Keaton's has been drawing in crowds and rave reviews for over two years now.
2013 was a heck of a year for Winnipeg band The Bros. Landreth - they released their debut album 'Let It Lie' to much critical acclaim, toured across the country twice, had their video 'Tappin On The Glass' added at CMT and ZUUS Country and received significant radio airplay nationally on CBC, Galaxie and college radio. And with the new year upon us, The Bros. Landreth are showing no signs of slowing down with the announcement of another Canadian Tour starting on January 16th in Regina!
Brothers Joey and David Landreth have spent the last decade supporting some of Canada’s most talented artists, developing a reputation for their exceptional musicianship. They’ve played with everyone from Doc Walker to Imaginary Cities and now they are finally taking the plunge into a project that is uniquely their own. With their debut album 'Let It Lie', The Bros. Landreth leave the esoteric behind in favor of delivering stories simply, never letting their road-proven musicality stand in the way of the songs speaking for themselves. It begins with the upbeat 'Our Love', which tells the story of a relationship at the end of it’s rope. 'Runaway Train' features their musician father, Wally Landreth, sharing vocal duties and the guitar driven 'Goin’ To the Country' is an opportunity to hear the band dig in. After one listen, you'll realize it's hard to put your finger on what exactly The Bros. Landreth sound like. Their music has been called Alt-Country, Roots, Folk and even "Eagles 2.0". Give the album a listen and decide for yourself! Be sure to check out The Bros. Landreth on their latest Canadian Tour!
