The Ashley Hundred
Since their formation in 2012, The Ashley Hundred has been constantly writing, stripping apart, and rewriting the songs of each of the band members. Continually growing as a band and as individual musicians. The bands first 2013 release, Postcards From The Moon, marked their firm arrival into the Calgary music scene, and brought them across the country on campus radio charts and on the stages from BC to Quebec. Soon after the release of their debut EP, Calgary veterans 36? approached the band to collaborate on a Split LP, which lead The Ashley Hundred to their first vinyl release, and first professionally produced music video made with funding from the Telus Storyhive grant. Their most recent Self-Titled release of September 2017, made with Juno award winning producer Josh Gwilliam and gold record holding engineer Spencer Cheyne was their most ambitious yet covering a vast sonic territory from bouncy psych-pop, to introspective ballad.
Lovers Touch (Toronto)
Lovers Touch has got the moves and the grooves to have you dancing out of your denim. This four-piece band will wrap you in a blanket of ecstasy so sweaty you’ll have no choice but to shake like a soggy dog. Inspired by dad music, they rock your favourite styles into jams you’ve never heard before. Lube up your ear holes; these fellas start rough and finish with a bang that would make James Dean proud. Bring all your sad and lonely friends; everybody needs Lovers Touch.
After fronting a garage rock band for nearly a decade Thomas Englund had accumulated a collection of saccharine pop tunes that never fit that mold. He didn't know what to do with them until he began hitting harmonies with kindred spirit Shannon Thomas. Pulling Anthony Vespa and Mike Hudec on board they're calling the hook laden sounds 50's Pop Rock.
