I Am The Mountain
I Am the Mountain layers brass and string accents beneath the loving vocal delivery of songwriter, Colton O’Reilly. With a freshly introduced songbook of laid-back sounds from Western Canada’s lake country, this collective’s rotating cast of young musicians breathe friendship into every room, or campfire they grace. - https://www.facebook.com/IAmTheMountain/
Andrew Phelan (The River and The Road)
"[Andrew] Phelan has a sleeper of a voice-the kind that can lull one moment, and knock you back with its power the next" - Sarah Fawcet, Red On Black Music.
Australian musician Andrew Phelan Intended on a month long stay in Vancouver, Canada before continuing to travel the world. 5 years later, forming bands and opening himself to possibilities, Andrew chose to call the Pacific Northwest home. The last three years have seen multiple coast-to-coast Canadian tours, and performances in Australia and Japan. Andrew's songwriting was also nominated by the Canadian Folk Music Awards for "Best Album" following the release of The River and The Road's "Headlights" LP in May of 2015. Noteworthy show supports have included Sam Roberts, The Arkells, and Shakey Graves in sold out venues, and playing festivals such as Live at Squamish and Toronto Urban Roots Festival.
PEACH PIT was formed during the greaseball summer migration of 2014. A few thousand of Vancouver’s sleaziest motored their parent’s cars up the sea to sky highway to attend Pemberton Music Festival, including future band mates Christopher Vanderkooy and Neil Smith. Heavy amounts of heatstroke and substance abuse inspired flaky plans to meet up and play guitar together later that month. Neil’s melancholy pop songs soon evolved after a few practices. Christopher’s dreamy guitar tones, Peter Wilton’s Lou Reed inspired bass chords and Mikey Passcuzzi's punchy beats helped to develop their chewed bubblegum sound. With lyrics rooted in high school heartbreak and self deprecation, the band’s songs spin stories of backstabbing best friends and drug addicted tour guides. Having the dance moves of an epileptic headbanger and the body of a 14 year old girl, Neil brings a unique energy to their live shows while the rest of the band does their best to keep it weird. - https://www.facebook.com/peachpit17/
