Blending the lines between folk and rock, this Calgary musical collective performs songs that are meant to pull at your heartstrings. Fronted by creative genius Mark Hamilton, WoodPigeon seeks to explore concepts of beauty through finely crafted sounds.
While Minor Matter blends chamber music into a range of other modern genres, the Saskatoon five-piece band describe their sound as “alternative chamber folk.” While each member is armed with an arsenal of instruments, they work together and collaborate to develop songs that pull the listener into a swath of emotions and ultimately inspiring full body dance moves.
Gunner and Smith
Started by Saskatoon’s Geoff Smith, Gunner & Smith has morphed into a six-piece indie country rock ensemble creating a lush, deep sound that can easily be traced back to the simpler roots of a singer/songwriter style. The band’s 2014 release, He Once Was A Good Man, demonstrates a laid-back kind of maturity, and is an incredibly comfortable album that makes the listener feel like they’ve been invited to a private prairie kitchen party.
Fern is a Saskatoon based folk artist wrought by the Prairies’ cityscapes and gravel roads alike. Finding her strength in poetic lyrics and understated arrangements, Fern get aims to get you right in the gut with songs about angst, love, and those weird thoughts you get stuck in your head right before bed.
