While bands often spend their early days discovering their musical directions and vying for visibility, the story of Vancouver’s Dear Rouge is something unique and almost unheard of in Canada. The band is led by husband and wife duo Drew and Danielle McTaggart. Between the two of them, they carry years of touring and recording with multiple bands and different musical ventures. First listens of their debut album showcase punchy guitar hooks, uplifting synth layers, and Danielle’s sincerely powerful vocal delivery.
The Sunset Kids are a unique Canadian dream folk, electro-pop music duo created by Joshua Palmer and Allya-V from Saskatoon, SK. Influenced by the New Wave and Synthesized Sounds of the 80’s – their music represents a blend of many genres, from folk to synth electronic and indie. Quickly becoming well known for implementing visual art during their performances they use original videos to capture the essence and mood of their music.
