Moontricks

(Kaslo, BC)

 

 

Combining their love of folk, blues, and electronic music, Nathan Gurley and Sean Rodman are blazing their own trail, merging musical worlds previously unacquainted and capturing audiences along the way.

 

Since connecting in their rural hometown through a shared love of music, the pair’s chemistry was instantly apparent. With Gurley at the production helm and Rodman on songwriting and vocals, they’ve birthed an authentically raw and seductive sound infusing grassroots blues, wistful soul, and gritty, boot­stomping bass.

 

Their breakout organic hit “Home” has surpassed 1 million streams and their music is frequently licensed for film and television.

 

Once a best­kept secret in Canada's festival circuit, Moontricks is now taking their sound worldwide. Feeling just as at home on an electronic festival stage one weekend and a folk festival the next, their spirited live performances feature an assemblage of guitar, keys, banjo, and vocals atop stunning original productions.

Rumour Mill

(Nelson, BC)

  

Rumour Mill is an independent Canadian band headed by Aline Daigle (violin/vocals/mandolin) and Anna Katarina (piano/vocals/guitar).

Lifelong friends, the pair blend their classical jazz training with modern spirits to create an effervescent cocktail of indie-pop with strong twists of folk and country – influenced by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Haim, The Bros Landreth, Joni Mitchell and Maggie Rogers.

Whether performing as a duo, trio, or 5-piece, hallmarks of their distinct sound include plush vocal harmonies, violin, keyboard, and driving grooves, with lyrics that weave the listener through an exploration of timeless themes, such as heartache, joy, love, and adventure. 

Their debut EP Daylight’s Free, released in April 2019, quickly earned respect and attention on the international stage – leading to a nomination for Artist of the Year in the 2019 Kootenay Music Awards, Top 100 in CBC Searchlight, and a full scholarship to the 2020 Folk Alliance Conference in New Orleans. While consistently charting on US radio stations, their catalogue has also recently been licensed by 13 television networks, including Discovery, Oprah, TLC, MTV, A&E, and E!TV. 

Their follow-up EP Gone With The Wine – which was entirely self-engineered, mixed, and produced – was recently released in September 2020.

Expect a moodier and more mature sound from this release, ringing with a touch of a broken heartedness, and pivoting slightly from their more upbeat and pop-centric debut.

With catchy melodies, soulful harmonies and skilled songwriting, these ladies will sweep you off your feet and leave you wanting more!
