The Ashley Hundred
The Ashley Hundred creates a rich and colourful palette of textures while surrounded on stage with a collection of instruments and effects. Reverb soaked guitars and layers of harmonies melt together in a thick cloud of atmosphere, while the banjo is given new life as it dances through an array of effects pedals and joins in the dense and lush soundscapes created by the band. Melodic bass lines often take the lead in the song, accompanied by crisp and thoughtful drumming. Failing to find inspiration by any single genre of music, The Ashley Hundred blends their favourite parts of folk, psych rock, hip hop and pop to create a unique explosion of sound, while not being afraid to let their roots show. - https://www.facebook.com/TheAshleyHundred/
Gunner and Smith
Evolving from Saskatoon folk artist Geoffrey Smith’s one-man vision, Gunner & Smith has emerged as an indie-country-rock outfit with their own unique sound culled from influences as diverse as roots, pop and psychedelia. Smith’s haunting baritone and shadowy lyrics are unmistakable touchstones that tie the songs together.
The band’s reputation as a killer live act has grown from their beginnings in 2010, playing relentlessly at home in Saskatchewan and expanding organically across the country, with forays into the US. Gunner & Smith cut their teeth at festivals including OMFEST, MoSo Fest, Lilac Festival and the prestigious Ness Creek Festival. On the road they’ve shared the stage with Del Barber, Devin Cuddy, The Elwins, Said the Whale, Deep Dark Woods and many more. In support of their latest release the band toured Canada four times and performed official showcases at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City and NXNE in Toronto. - https://www.facebook.com/Gunner.and.Smith/
Pancake plays delightfully sweet and fluffy pop music. Their sound is crisp golden brown hooks, buttery funk beats and pure maple syrup friendship. - https://www.facebook.com/403pancake/
