The Ashley Hundred
he Ashley Hundred are a psychedelic rock band without boundaries or burdens. Five collaborators from disparate musical upbringing, piling competing sonic ideas onto scampering melodies in a dense forest of harmonic idiosyncrasy. Every member contributes to the songwriting and direction of each song. Drummer Michael De Souza brings hip-hop and R&B influence, guitarist Carson Stewart enforces tension into sonic corners with dark jazz chords and clever harmonic pathways, Andrew Franks introduces surreal lyrical turns of phrase, Jordan Moe puts forward an assured rock backdrop with hefty bass guitar, and banjo/steel player Brett Cassidy textures the compositions with country craftsmanship and folk finesse.
I am the Mountain
I Am The Mountain is everywhere, from bars and cafes, to caught-in-your-brain as you try and fall asleep. Beginning as a folk project of singer-songwriter Colton O’Reilly, the late-night campfire soul songs that once whispered between the pines in Kananaskis have echoed through almost every music-friendly space in Calgary. The horn-accented songs of I Am The Mountain are the most pleasant and reliable in a city with a maelstrom of eclectic indie. As the band grew into a full ensemble, the heart-on-sleeve earnestness of their early folk songs have morphed into luxurious still-life songs that bring bodies together with smart drumming and scintillating sparkly guitar work.
Kue Varo & the Only Hopes
Gothic folk group Kue Varo & the Only Hopes channels a kaleidoscope of dream-pop and murder ballad influences for high-drama songs that sound frozen in time. The group would sound right at home on The Roadhouse stage in Twin Peaks, given Varo’s emotive voice and accompaniment that runs from erie to airy at a whim. – https://www.sledisland.com/
Bears in Hazenmore
Bears in Hazenmore are an ambient alternative rock group based out of Regina, Treaty 4 Territory, Saskatchewan. Since their formation in 2014, the band has become known for creating atmospheric soundscapes and their ability to draw audiences in with intimate lyrics and enticing builds. The five-piece ensemble includes extensive use of reverb-saturated guitars, dynamic percussion, and ethereal brass and woodwind textures. They draw strong influences from and comparisons to groups such as Royal Canoe, Aidan Knight, and Bon Iver. The band was recently nominated for Alternative Artist of the Year at the 2019 Saskatchewan Music Awards.
2022 saw the release of Clea’s debut solo album, “Circle Zero”, which recalls the genre defying production and inimitable vocals of Lana del Rey, grounded in the nostalgic groove and lush pop stylings of Beach House and Japanese Breakfast.
