Fever Feel is an original rock and roll band of 2016, founded by primary songwriters Landon Franklin and Logan Gabert. However, they are much more than just a group of musicians. Fever Feel is a culture, a movement, and part of a new age for rock and roll music.
“There are some rare acts who craft their art from a place of deep introspection that the listener is able to feel in their core. Fever Feel is one of these bands.” – Beatroute Magazine
Causing listeners to dance and sing, then lose all control with their captivating visions of a simpler time, Fever Feel’s sound is comprised of emotionally dynamic, groove-filled compositions that lay the foundation for Franklin’s thought provoking poetry. Gabert’s guitar leads, abounding in both power and delicacy, soar with an enigmatic finesse. These make way for Platt’s equally compelling organ tones, which are shrouded in subtlety, yet executed violently. Together they shine like a moonlit night, contrasting the bands tight rhythm section led by Franklin and his melodic bass playing.
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.
