Kalle Mattson w/ The Electric Revival and Little Criminals

Kalle Mattson

In the four short years since Kalle Mattson began writing songs, he and his band have grown exponentially over that short period of time. With two full-lengths and an EP already under his young belt, and now with two viral videos for ‘Water Falls’ (250,000 views) and ‘Thick As Thieves’ (over 1,000,000 views), Kalle Mattson returns this Fall with a new 7″ teaser of his highly anticipated new LP. Produced by The Wooden Sky’s Gavin Gardiner and recorded in 2012 at Toronto’s Lincoln County Social Club, Kalle Mattson’s newest full-length features appearances by members of Juno-nominated artists The Wooden Sky, Cuff The Duke and a song co-written by Kalle and renowned singer-songwriter Jeremy Fisher.
Kalle’s second album, “Anchors”, broke new ground for him in 2011. The album was mixed by Howie Beck (Feist, Jason Collett, Hayden), mastered at the legendary Bernie Grundman Studios (Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, The Band) and received rave reviews that culminated in numerous year end “Best Of” lists, a Top 100 placement in the Billboard World Song Contest, and a song placement on Degrassi. All the while Kalle hit the road in support of the album with stops along the way at CMW, NXNE, Pop Montreal, COCA, and Ottawa Bluesfest, tours with Sunparlour Players, Cuff The Duke & Jeremy Fisher and opening slots for Jim Bryson, The Rural Alberta Advantage and Blue Rodeo. The album also received a pair of Northern Ontario Music Award wins for Album of the Year (Group) & SOCAN Songwriter of the Year.
In November 2011 Kalle Mattson’s music video for ‘Thick As Thieves’ went viral with over 1,000,000 views to date. Created for only $250 in materials, it was covered by such media outlets as Time Magazine, The Huffington Post, Yahoo and Much Music, amongst others and leading The National Post to highlight Kalle Mattson as one of five musicians poised to breakout in 2012.
In Spring 2012 Kalle released a new EP entitled “Lives In Between” to critical acclaim and heightened media attention. The EP spawned Kalle’s second viral music video for ‘Water Falls’, which depicted a camera ‘slingshotting’ through San Fransisco in a revolutionary new stop-motion technique. The video was premiered by NPR’s All Songs Considered and was featured in The Atlantic, CBS News, Gizmodo, and led The Huffington Post to ask “Is this the coolest music video of 2012?”.
Kalle Mattson’s newest full-length will be released in February 2014.

The Electric Revival

Formed in late 2009, The Electric Revival, consisting of three longtime friends, hit the ground running with the release of guitarist Ian Dillon’s independent E.P. With the inclusion of longtime friends Dallas Lobb on drums, and Dan Toews on bass, the group began playing local Calgary gigs until enough material had been created to release the full length album Presenting: The Electric Revival in 2012. Due to demand, the group kept fans entertained by releasing a new single every week for 13 weeks in the summer of 2012. Following this ambitious undertaking, The Electric Revival released its second full length album Pirate Radio in the summer of 2013 and then a follow up E.P. 5 Songs by the Electric Revival later that same year. As a result of these albums, The Electric Revival was picked up by Cruzer Media to aid in the distribution of the band’s current catalog.
With the bands ability to create and perform material that appeals to a wide audience, Ian Dillon’s ingenuity of his theremin guitar solos, and musical experience of the members, The Electric Revival has seen an increase in its fan base. The group’s first North American tour was well received in 2013, which only fueled the band’s desire to consistently provide listeners with quality material and an unforgettable performance.
